Listen to me! For I have important things to tell you. Everything I say is right, for I speak the truth and detest every kind of deception. My advice is wholesome. There is nothing devious or crooked in it. My words are plain to anyone with understanding, clear to those with knowledge. Choose my instruction rather than silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold. Proverbs 8:6-10
Understanding what God is saying to us is important because what He is saying to you isn’t necessarily what He is saying to me. God is a personal God, He knows us all individually. He has a plan for us all individually. For some of us that may be something that has never been seen or done before. He created us in His image, yet He created us all individually.
He speaks plainly to us all (if we are willing to listen) and what He has to say to us individually is more valuable than anything we can ever come up with in our own strength or from a group. But, He may use someone in a group to give us the message He wants us to hear.
Having a Sponsor and/or a mentor in recovery is an important part of the process. They make us look at life from a different perspective and give us insights into the life we have not yet discovered or tried to apply to our daily living.
Pray today that God will show you the individual or individuals in your life He has chosen to help you on the road to recovery and changed life. And, ask Him to give you the courage and strength you need to approach them and ask them to walk with you, support and guide you as you walk the path God has prepared for you.
Just for today open your mind to the opportunities God has prepared for you and to the inclusion of the people He has chaosen to walk with you.
