Step 2 in the 12 Step Ladder of Success
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Sunday, 23 July 2017

We are looking at the Twelve Step ladder to success over addictions that cripple us preventing holiness and purity God wants to create in us as we abide in Him. Last week we look at admitting we have a problem and how to address it now this week we are going to look at step 2 as everyone has a need to be restored to sanity, so we came become what God created us to become.
 
2. We came to believe that God could restore us to sanity.
The insanity is that we continue the same behavior and expect different results.
2 Peter 2: 22 Of them the proverbs are true: A dog returns to its vomit, and a sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud. What  a story of mans condition when we are left to our own way. For the heart of man is sinful and without the help of the Lord, we have no hope of becoming what God wants us to be and that is like Him.
 
Proverbs 23:7 As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. This again needs to be understood so we keep abiding in the vine as John 15 relates to us, then God helps us become restored so we work at what bothers us from being godly.
 
Self-Destructive Behaviors
 
Negative Self Talk- This is so easy for we are born having to be taught to talk and it is natural to be wrong and only God can correct the wrongs in all of us.
Physical Abuse of Self- this is so common in societies around the world as we see tattooing, as something that gives others a picture of who you are that  your proud of and when you're wanting to have them removed it is going to hurt.
Physical Abuse of Others-Look at the terror that is going on around the world. People enjoy hurting others and the Schools have to be on the lookout for bullies.
Verbal Abuse of Others-Just in the United States of America we are seeing Republican and Democrats abusing one another. Verbal abuse is rampant around the world and who cares. It is even happening in the religious circles to where it is doing a good job of destroying the truth of being able to love one another. The phase “Black lives Matter” is hurtful for all lives matter.
Drugs/Alcohol- We are living at a time when it is ok even through Drug is going to kill you, or Alcohol is going to separate you from those you love the most.
Suicidal Thoughts-Here in White Swan on the Yakama Indian Reservation Suicide is way to common. I spent time on Suicide watch while at Green Hill a Reformatory in Chehalis, WA when I worked on Security. We had to be as close at all times; a hands length away, to prevent someone from suicide. Yes, we have class on how to prevent it and yet people commit themselves to end life.
Isolation-Even when you’re around lots of people some feel like they are locked in and can’t escape. Isolation is like living on an Island all by yourself 
Destructive Relationships-We see this in marriage around the world and where prosperity is abundant destructive Behavior is common. People have a hard time being nice and we see it around the world  with ISIS and some other religions.             Gambling-Gambling is a sport and people are always ready to make a fast dollar. We have more casinos going in as people are addicted to the thrill of losing money. We now have Addiction programs to control it fascinations 

Eating Disorders-This is so common for obesity is rampant and people love to try and eat their troubles away and do not get the exercise needed to burn the weight off.

12 Steps to victory in Jesus

Last Sunday I had to call the Indian Police as we had someone laying on the front porch of the Church in a red sleeping bag. I went over and woke him up and he was startled and asked where he was I said in front of the Harrah Assembly of God Church. He wanted somewhere to sleep so let him inside the Church and went home and called 911 and they gave me the Indian police. They came out in about 20 minutes. I was in the house across the way and went out to talk to the officers and let them know I was not able to take him anywhere even though he said, you’re a Church, right? You suppose to help. I said, yes, we do and if one comes and listens and obeys the Lord he will never get into your condition of homelessness and drunken stupor. That is the reason I called the police for now they can help you.
The officer said I have seen him before in worse situations. I also talked to him about accept the Lord and letting the Lord help him in becoming a blessing. Then the officer put in the t he Patrol Car and I talk to him through the window, assuring him we want to help and he needs to come back when sober. I’m not drunk, he said.
I am concern for all on our Reservation regardless of skin color and want all to become a blessing and not a curse, to where they have to be ashamed of what they are doing. Alcoholism is a major problem and I would like all to know God created us to be able to have control of what we eat, drink and do with our lives. We do not have to be under the burden of alcohol, drugs, gambling or any other sins that would defeat us to where we can’t be what God created us to be.
Let’s look at the oldest recover program in history so we can repair the damages of sins addictions.
Having worked in jail ministry since 1955 when those who were arrested of being drunk went into a drunk tank and as a young teen ager I was with an older gentleman talking to them. One of the areas we started with, was we have to accept where we are, and how helpless we are, for in here we are powerless and the offices have the power. We have come to the place where we are unmanageable. We have lost the ability to make good choices and are separated from family and friends and regret in now we are locked up.

MY Thoughts for July 7th 2017

I am excited for what is going on in our lives as we are seeing the return of the Lord clearer than ever before. Lawlessness is increasing, lust in rampant out of control and Face Book is doing all it can to make sure they control what is shown on their sight.
We are certainly seeing New Age teaching becoming reality as they say, you are able to do whatever you want to and do not bother me and I will not bother you. This should allow us freedom for all and it is not working for we all have restriction in life and if we do not know our restriction we are headed for disaster. That is what were seeing around the world as nations are battling one another. Israel is standing alone as ever nation around them wants to destroy them from this world. Notice how the world looks at Christians with disdain and not wanting them to be free in worshiping, reverencing, have faith and hope in God to answer prayers. 
God has created us all and all we see, look around and what do you see carelessness, shame and addictions to evil doings. When God created us for Goodwill and Peace towards one another. Christian are able still able today to love the Lord and all God created as they abide in the vine; Jesus. I am so thankful for the Church, which is Gods instrument for making melody that is precious and meaningful bring peace and joy into everyone’s life that has faith and hope in God to keep on giving life so we can achieve our potential.
We have more knowledge and understanding today than ever before right in our hands with the Smart phones and computer that is instant, but one thing is lacking and that is wisdom to know how to apply and follow the directions laid out by the word of Gods; the Bible. God created us with the ability to choose to follow the way, truth and life found as we study the Bible and hid its golden nuggets in our hearts so we can act like humans God created us for. We are created in His image and many are growing and becoming like God pure and holy so they do not have to hide for sin, but confess and say I’m sorry Lord and move on in the relationship that assures and empowers us to become better and better, not worse and bitter to where we can’t even be human, but act like brute beast wanting to destroy all good as they accept anything goes.
Satan was cast out of heaven when he felt he was just as good as God, in fact better than God and look at what the world thinks, they are as good as most Christians. May we have eyes, ears, smell, taste and feeling that are controlled by our Souls in tune with Gods will, not our will but thine be done, oh Lord. Our soul where created to communicate with our Father God in who we worship, reverence, have faith and hope in God to answer our prayers for Help. Then out spirit five senses of imagination, conscience, memory, reason and affect can be upon God will for us to achieve our potential.
