Let Him lead you.
“So, my brothers and sisters, we must not be ruled by our sinful selves or live the way our sinful selves want. If you use your lives to do the wrong things your sinful selves want, you will die spiritually. But if you use the Spirit’s help to stop doing the wrong things you do with your body, you will have true life.
The true children of God are those who let God’s Spirit lead them.
The Spirit we received does not make us slaves again to fear; it makes us children of God.
With that Spirit we cry out, “Father.” And the Spirit himself joins with our spirits to say we are God’s children.” – Romans 8:12-16
Saw this picture and, seeing the boy in the baseball cap reminded me of how Jaclyn had signed up Max for Junior Giants to see if he would like baseball.
We are ever looking for ways to help determine and shape the direction God has for his life and in the process must allow the Lord to lead us.
As Max and I were practicing dribbling the soccer ball in the backyard one day, I saw the look in his eyes as he watched me and I thought of how I look in the Lords eyes, watching Him through His Word, for my own direction.
There is such a deep abiding peace and presence of God in our hearts when we know we are not the ones who are suppose to ‘know it all’ and that together, like the picture, we all go to God our heavenly Dad for our direction in life.
As he grows older, I’ll be praying he sees more than anything, my own dependence on God for my direction in life.
