10th Step of 12 Step Ladder of Success

I am sure you're realizing how important it is to know that sin is sin and it prevents us from being holy and glorified in the beloved, so number one we have to admit we are sinners and in need of help and that help come as I abide in the vine as John 15 shows us. Number 2 is making sure we let God remove all our sins as we are born again and wanting now to live for Christ. This is being disciplines to read His love letter to become more and more like him so all bitterness is gone. So, never forgets to make a decision every day to continue to abide in the Lords loving arms for He cares for us. So, I am making sure I turn everything over to the Lord, so I climb the third ring on the ladder of success. I am learning life is always making sure I keep climbing to the fourth ring of success as I make a moral inventory of what and who I am. Then step five is admitting to myself and my fellow human being, I am not perfect, but keeping myself pure in the Blood of the Lamb of God, by confessing every time I do wrong to God, myself and others, so I can love my enemies and pray for them. Now I am climbing to the sixth step letting God have His way as I repent of my defects and character. Then as I look at the seventh step I am humbly asking God to forgive my shortcoming, so I am faithful to obeying the Lords will. This gives me the responsibility to climb another ring to the 8th step, making sure I know who I am harming and willing to ask them to forgive me and help me to understand everyone matters. I learn the ninth step is so necessary and that is direct amends need to be made when possible without hurting self or others. Then we are ready for step
10.  We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.
1 Corinthians 10:12 I
"If you think you are standing firm, be careful you don't fall." You or I, is so important, that is I need to keep abiding in the Lord, for without Him we are going to fail.
We continue to take inventory of ourselves to assure we keep a clear conscience, so our memory, imagination, reasons, and affections are pure and holy, so we are ambassadors for the Lord. He calls us to walk in the light and we do that when we accept Romans 12: 1-2 “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies, a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is a reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove that is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”.
We ask the Holy Spirit to search us daily and when we are wrong we promptly admit it. This is making sure the Lord is the one who is inspiring us to become more and more like Him.
Our faith has given us healthier thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. We find our hope is making sure we are abiding in the Lord. The we are dedicated to worshiping and reverencing only the Lord, so our faith in God is able to see our prayers answered.
We have replaced fear, guilt, shame, isolation, loneliness, anger and other destructive behaviors with:

9th Step of the 12 Step Ladder to Success

Life is so precious when we begin to walk in the light as we learn to abide in the vine; Jesus. For He empowers us to overcome all the sins that would so easily beset us, preventing us from walking in the light of God’s love. We are sinners saved by God grace, not man’s. So, we are always admitting we are sinners that are poor without abiding in the Lord. The first step in becoming Gods is.
1.    Admit we have a need. Mt. 5:3 We all have a Conscious need- we are poor- needing help as our pride-does not want us to admit we need salvation.  “Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven”. Thank the Lord we need to work every day as we are not our own, we need to breath the air and eat the food and get the rest needed to stay alive as we work at life.  Now we are Christs we are redeemed, or bought back and He has a plan for us to restore us, unto Himself, so number 2 becomes possible.
2.    Restoration is possible. Mt. 5:4 mourn for sin that is feeling bad ashamed and we cry at night or even during the day for the sins we so easily commit. –Boredom becomes a part of our lives and we become addicted to evil behavior and attitudes as compassion is not accepted, instead we become bitter and the Lord wants us to love obeying Him to become restored as if we had never sinned. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” When we are abiding in the Lord, He lets us know in our conscience, we did something wrong, so we repent as soon as possible. Convictions are real and we need to feel bad when we do what is wrong for it hurts you and those around you. So, convictions make me and condemnation breaks me. So, I am going to make sure I go Gods way.
3.    Decide to turn your will over from bad to good. Mt 5:5 Meek-is certainly not weak, but strength knowing we are needing growth- if growth is not present, anger become a part of our lives to where we can’t control our behavior, or attitudes –concentration is needed to make sure we keep our focus upon God and His will for our lives. “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” Thank the Lord we are what we are because of God’s love, mercy and grace, He has given to us all. Meek is not being weak, but accepting the fact we need help and that help comes from the Holy Spirit of God. This all happens when I realize I have to be faithful to God, for He is my strength and I know it by my experience with Him. So, I am always taking a look at what I am doing. Which leads to step four.
4. Make a fearless truthful moral inventory. Mt. 5:6 Righteous should be our goal always for without it, we will not be successful over addictions of sins- apathy-Let’s not fall asleep as many are doing today, let’s be aware and awake to the wages of sin, giving us the ability to see what attributes to God’s truth.Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.” It is as we look at imagination, times, vividness we are able to live in reality that is a blessing, for we are eating healthy food, “Not garbage in, but garbage out.” We are seeing obesity more all the time, for we live in the land of plenty. Help us to make sure we are hiding the world of God in our hearts so we do not sin against God and our fellow man. Now we are at the place in our lives we are beginning to grow in knowledge and understanding, as we gain wisdom to just obey the Lords will and not our own. Then we are able to practice step five all the time.
5. Admit to creator and to ourselves and to others the exact nature of wrong. Mt. 5:7 Merciful-it is not my brother or sister, but me O Lord. That is being transparent- seeing ourselves as sinners, undone, needing help and not ashamed of it. Bitterness leaves for we are now in love with God and all He created and pray for our enemies. Then we can see Transformation in our attitude and behavior that becomes better and lovable all the time regardless of the circumstance. Forgiveness Bring a release of emotions that cause bitterness and hostility to flourish. “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy”. If we want to be a blessing we need to forgive others and pray for our enemies, so we can be healed and become transparent. We all have problems and need to show and tell others we are not perfect yet, but are striving to become better and better to not become bitter. This really means, I am beginning to see the success of achieving my potential in climbing the ladder and not resting till we get to the top.

Thank the Lord He created us perfect and then man sinned and caused us all to be born sinners, but when we accept God and admit we need salvation or forgiveness he comes into our lives and restores us as we are born again with a new Spiritual nature wanting to please and obey the Lord. This is a choice we make to follow the Lord and not the enemy of our souls. So, we turn everything over to the Lord as salvation become a daily searching of our souls to see if there be some wicked way in us. This is taking a fearless moral inventory of ourselves. It is not my brother or my sister, but me oh Lord that drives us to seek His help daily moment by moment. We are not afraid to admit to ourselves and others the exact nature of our wrongs. So, we let God have His way and will and realize it is God that removes as we now have the Holy Spirits power to help us resist wrong and evil of all kinds. It’s not being perfect it is becoming better and better by humbly admitting our short coming so God can remove them, no so we can remove them by stopping what is wrong and evil. Now we come to step eight which is so hard for us all.
8. We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
Luke 6:31 "And as you would like and desire that others would do to you, do so to them."
Working Steps 8 will begin to relieve our isolation, fear, guilt, shame, and loneliness. This is working out our salvation with fear and trembling and it is hard and one has to be careful they do not make things worse but better. We may not be able to talk to someone about what we felt and have to write a letter or make a phone call. The most important thing we can do is confront those we hurt in person, without threatening them, but asking them to forgive you and if they do not that is ok, for you can’t control no one, only your attitude and behavior is important and God knows your heart felt desire. What happens is we are learning to stop blaming others and learn to focus on taking responsibility for ourselves. We have blamed our parents, our relatives, our friends, out teachers, and even God. It is not someone else God is concerned with it is you so, put ourselves first on the list to make amends to. We forgive ourselves for out wrongs. We stop punishing ourselves and others for mercy and grace steps in as we see the way God created us all for goodwill and peace now.
