Matthew 7 has a description of what was my problem. I heard, studied, knew, and professed faith; I just didn’t live it. That is, until a food addiction sent me searching for help, and I found a way to put what I know into action with the Twelve Steps.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. (Matthew 7:21, NRSV)

Dear Father, today, help me be a doer of Your Word rather than just a professor. Lead me according to Your will, and give me power to carry it out.
