Following Close Behind
Decisions, decisions. There is always a choice to make. What clothes to wear, who to date, what to eat, what classes to take, etc. Some choices are big and others are small. Sometimes it just isn’t easy making the right decision. Sometimes those tough choices are pretty big in our minds like where to go to college or if you should get married. There are so many different sayings and theologies like “If God closes this door, He will open a window.” Well, today I read about a great theology–it’s even better than the doors and windows idea. What would happen if we chose to follow God’s footsteps? If we chose to follow Him, then we could just follow His leading wherever He goes. Life isn’t about us. But we can only realize that when we finally come to grips with the fact that we cannot be number one in our lives. God must take first place–when we let Him. Once we give Him control, then we can take the backseat and follow His leading. We can follow His footprints in the sand. Follow God’s footprints. He will show you just which way to go.
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all of your ways acknowledge Him and He shall make your paths straight.”
