As we travel on the journey of life, we can encounter detours, pitfalls, and closed roads. If we head the wrong way we can end up on a road to nowhere. However, if we have a seasoned traveler navigating us, we can be sure to end up heading in the right direction.
We were made for an adventurous journey of overcoming obstacles, impacting people and leaving a legacy on the planet. God created us in His image for love, relationship and mission. No one has our individual DNA or intricately designed fingerprints because we are a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
The God of the universe not only created us but He radically loves us. His love became flesh and dwelt among us. The only begotten of the Father full of truth of grace loved us, embraced us and set us free. He gave His life for you and me so we could be the righteousness of God in Christ.
As we receive Jesus into our hearts, we receive the Holy Spirit as our guide. As we cultivate our ability to hear from our Lord Jesus in prayer, we will sense His beautiful presence leading us. We will intuitively know which paths to take and what decisions to make. As we are led into green pastures and still waters, we will find restoration for our souls. With our Lord as our shepherd we will lack nothing.
Psalm 23:1-3 God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing. You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from. True to your word, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction.
