Entanglements

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Hebrews 12:1

We have this great cloud of witnesses who we refer to as our sponsors and accountability partners. They are the ones we go to and have given permission to keep us accountable. This great cloud of witnesses is there to provide support and guidance while confronting us during the times we slide into old, unhealthy behaviors. Without this assemblage of trusted companions, we would be left to do life on our own. For most of us, that’s exactly what got us into recovery in the first place.

Sin easily entangles. Wouldn’t it be great if it was difficult to get ensnared by sin? Unfortunately, it’s far too easy to get into the entanglements of sin. At first, sin looks like a small animal in the wild. We often ask ourselves how such a harmless looking creature could cause us any ill. But soon, we realize that sin is not a cute, cuddly animal. Sin wants nothing more than to destroy us. This is why we need stronger, more experienced recovery people standing behind us to warn against the entanglements of sin.

The race marked out before us is our recovery in Christ. We run this race called recovery with perseverance. There are going to be times when the race gets difficult and we think we can’t take another step. Our cloud of great witnesses is always near to encourage us and cheer us on. The enemy is going to set up traps along the way and entice us to stop running the race. We know his game plan for this race because we are coached by others who are also running the race. With Christ and our great cloud of witnesses, nothing can stop us from running and completing this race.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, help me to not be a stumbling block for others. You have called each of us to be in a unique and special relationship with You. Help me to understand that what might not be Your will for my life, might be something that you have allowed for another person. Help me to see that not everything is going to be on a checklist and that there is no need to be legalistic. In Christ name, I pray. Amen.
