Our church consists of homeless street friends, at-risk youth, aged-out foster kids, and men, along with their families, who have come through the Adult Rehabilitation Center.
For these men, one major component in remaining clean is to stay away from their old neighborhoods. At a graduation ceremony, the father of a graduate warned the men to stay away from the evil they knew in their old neighborhoods and to create new habits, surrounding themselves with safe and secure allies.
We get what we seek and ask for. To break old habits, we need to stay away from the triggers of those habits and create new habits in their place. “Whoever seeks good finds favor, but evil comes to one who searches for it” (Proverbs 11:27). If we are looking for trouble, we will find it. If we aim to live righteously, we will find favor with God.
Focus on God, and He will lead your every move. Remain focused on God and live righteously.
