Step One thought and scripture – Day 30.
Step One in Alcoholics Anonymous
Admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
Step One in Living Free
I now see [admit] that I, of myself, am powerless, unable to control [manage] my life by myself.
The only way to do the next right thing is to not allow sin to control you. The only way to not let sin control you is to realize you are powerless to control it without God.
New Living Translation (NLT)
7 You will be accepted if you do what is right. But if you refuse to do what is right, then watch out! Sin is crouching at the door, eager to control you. But you must subdue it and be its master.”
