Verse of the day
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.
Your faith was simple at its origin. You believed the Saviour Jesus in your heart, you confessed Him as Lord, you were saved. When this happened, you could tell there was a change. Although there were things you didn’t understand, no one – not even you – could deny that something was different. You could ‘hear His voice’, could sense the promptings of His Spirit. You believed, you obeyed. There were no complications.
This simplicity of faith you had at the beginning is what Christ desires that you carry through as you grow. Same innocent belief. Same childlike faith.
The path you walk on is no new path. It is one that has already been used by Jesus and marked by His footsteps. All He asks of you is to know God as He has known Him and be known of God as He was known of Him; also to follow in His footsteps of faith and obedience.
There are no territories uncharted by Him. Nothing new that wasn’t there at the beginning. No place in the Father He hasn’t reached. Therefore, be encouraged to seek and stay on the paths He has trod. Do not go in search of things ‘new’, things different and unmarked by His steps. In accepting Christ as Saviour and Lord, you made a covenant to follow in His footsteps. It’s the only way you have accepted to live. Choosing to do otherwise, is making your life go out of sorts, complicating your faith, missing out on understanding, and of the wisdom kept for babies.
Becoming like Jesus is a lifelong process and as you commit to daily follow Him in faith and obedience, to daily follow in His footsteps, always remember that He will never leave you nor forsake you.Becoming like Jesus is a lifelong process and as you commit to daily follow Him in faith and obedience, always remember that He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Lord, I confess that you’re my God and my guide forever and ever. Amen
