Prayer: Lord, Help me to avoid people who tempt me.
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters,in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. 1 Corinthians 1:10
Enablers are those people in your life that persuade you to use poor judgment. Although, you may love this person there is must be barriers placed because you are now trying a new way of life. Unless they’re interested in joining you hindering you from succeeding is not an option. This verse in the 1 Corinthians stands out to me for a lot of reasons. First, it’s one of Paul’s first points. There were a lot of people in Corinth in Paul’s time an estimated 650,000 it’s location made it a great place for commerce, and people’s of all kinds. Paul is warning the Jesus followers of Corinth to stick together and be unified with the people of your beliefs and ideas. Paul appealed to the unity of the church in Corinth. There are many references to how you are stronger with individuals with the same thoughts. There is going to be a lot of temptation today, Day 2 and you’re not going to be feeling well due to the detox of sugar so don’t let these people affect you so early in the game. I know that my Mom is a person I should not hang around to avoid temptation. She is someone that we have to find other things to do that does not involve eating because we have two different ideas of what that looks best for ourselves. That is a boundary that I have set with our relationship. You’re going to have to set boundaries to and pray that person in your life receives it with and open heart and love for you as well as they will abstain from tempting you during this detox.
Remembers’ Job’s friends and how they by the end of their visit with Job they had him slightly doubting himself after speaking with Him. People sometimes cast their own fears on us or let their own ambition get the best of them. Just keep in mind the people that you keep close by.
