Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go.
When we give our hearts and lives to Jesus Christ it is the Lord who leads us along every step. A decision to follow Jesus Christ is not only a decision to make Him savior, it is a decision to make Him Lord. When we make the choice to follow Jesus Christ every step and decision must be made with our focus upon God’s kingdom.
Jesus said to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness. When our hearts are given to Christ our lives are no longer our own. God’s will becomes the driving force in our lives and we follow and trust Him one step at a time. It is a naturally tendency for us as humans to want to look beyond today and even worry about today. But the Lord has promised to provide every need and to lead and guide us.
If our desire is to have God’s presence and peace filling every area of our lives then we must make seeking Him the priority. We must be disciplined in our pursuit of the Lord and so rearrange our lives so that time spend with Him in the place of intimacy becomes the priority. Let us not casually follow Jesus Christ, but let us seek the Lord with our whole heart and be willing to lay down our lives for the name of Jesus.
