Book: Proverbs 20
Proverbs 20:5 “A plan in the heart of a man is like deep water, But a man of understanding draws it out.”
There are God given hopes and dreams in each and every one of us. They are things that we know if we were doing we could really make a difference in this world. They are the things that the Spirit rises up in passion in us and we say, “ah, I really see God working through me in this and I feel joy!”.
Often it is very difficult to put our own finger on what these “things” are. We lead busy lives full of responsibilities. There is a tug going on between what I “need” to be doing and what I want to be doing. This is where a godly coach or mentor can be so invaluable. A godly coach is a person who draws on the wisdom and discernment of God to help you move forward in your own walk with God. He/she can help you break free from things that are hindering you. They can step back and look at you and your life to see what God is doing. A coach or mentor asks the right questions to draw out those deep desires that God has placed in your heart. He/she helps bring clarity to your life so that you can live purposefully. 1 Corinthians 9:26 says, “So I run with purpose in every step…”
A godly coach or mentor wants the very best for you not only in discovering your God given hopes and dreams but living them out. Each time you invite them in, or meet with them, they are interested in not only how you have advanced in your purpose but also what your next steps are and what you need break through on.
Pray and ask the Lord who a coach or mentor is in your life and then be intentional about meeting with them. If you don’t have one then ask the Lord to show you one. If you would like to talk further with us about finding a coach or mentor send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
