Read: Psalm 32:8-11
Focus Verse: I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.
God has a plan and a purpose for us all. Just as He created us all in His image as individuals His plan for our recovery is individual.
One of the most important aspects of the recovery process is the subject of sponsors/mentors. We all need one, but they need to be the right one. Sponsors/mentors in the process of recovery are special individuals. Whose God-given task is to guide and support people on God’s path for them. It is not to create carbon copies of ourselves.
The carbon copy of recovery is Jesus Christ and our goal through the process of character change needs to be to become more like Him.
- Do you have a Sponsor or Mentor who is helping you in recovery?
Prayer: Lord help me discover Your individual plan for my life and follow it.
We need to be careful not give in to the influences of others at the cost of jeopardising our recovery.
Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. In everything, do to others what you would have them do to you. “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven.
You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. Ask yourself this question “Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people
