LMA Step #1 - HONESTY
We admitted we were powerless on our own over (addictions/harmful behaviors of any nature) - that our lives become unmanageable without a conscious-contact with God.
Step 1 points out that we are powerless over addictions or any harmful behaviors without our Lord Jesus Christ. Our lives cannot be managed without Jesus. Maintain a conscious-contact with God.
2 Peter 1:3 (TPT): [God's Generous Grace] Everything we could ever need for life, and complete devotion to God has already been deposited in us by his divine power. For all this was lavished upon us through the rich experience of knowing him who has called us by name and invited us to come to him through a glorious manifestation of his goodness.
2 Peter 1:3 (Mirror Bible): By his divine engineering, he gifted us with all that it takes to live life to the full, where our ordinary day to day lives mirror our devotion and romance with our Maker. His intimate knowledge of us introduces us to ourselves again and elevates us to a position where his original intention is clearly perceived!
All we could ever need has been deposited into us by our loving Father.
