Recovery Devotion #176, 2017
Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts. When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good. We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us! So trust him absolutely, people; lay your lives on the line for him. God is a safe place to be.
Spiritual birth makes us a child of God. Have you asked God to make you a new person? To help you to put away the things in your past that are stopping you from growing up spiritually.
Childlike trust is essential to successful spiritual recovery. None of us are unworthy of time spent alone in the presence God. He welcomes us all and desires the best for us all.
We will know the Truth and it will set us free. If we are willing to put in the work, follow Jesus wherever He leads us and do whatever it is He is asking us to do.
Prayer: Lord today help me to faithfully follow You where ever Yo may lead me and do whatever You ask me to do.
