Carl’s Thought for Today – 05 May 2022
Follow the path that God would have you to go. For you never know where it leads.
You never know just how God is going to use someone. No one is so hopeless that God can’t use them.
God sometimes takes us the long way around to get us where He wants us to be. Sometimes it is those very trials that we go through that equips us for the task He had in mind for us. It may be the most rejected, down and out, messed up person you have ever seen that He uses to touch others. To plant the seeds of salvation in a cold and hard heart.
There are many types of addictions that people face, that control their lives seeking to destroy their very souls.
Maybe an addict, shackled in shame, for the depths of their addiction have taken them places no one ever thinks they would ever crawl down to.
Addicts struggle to forgive themselves… finding it hard to realize that God will forgive them. That is one of the hardest battles an addict fights. Too often, shame compels them back to their addiction.
Finding Jesus and accepting that they can be made flawless in His eyes is so important for their healthy recovery. And sometimes it takes someone who has traveled that road, someone who understands, to lead them back to Christ.
Every man, woman and child needs to be able to say, ‘I am no longer a slave to fear, for I am now a child of God.’
So follow the path that God would have you to go. You never know who you may lead back.
