In the Steps of Christ, as He follows in the Father’s

While praying this morning I asked our Good Shepherd to lead me on a path that would give Him the most glory. Even if that path means a time of suffering, then I would be privileged to suffer for His name’s sake, and for righteousness sake.

20140510-101921.jpgI specifically asked that I would walk in His footprints, like a little girl trailing behind her Daddy along the shore of a beach, stretching her legs to reach each of his footprints in the sand. I asked to follow in the steps of Christ, as He follows in the Father’s steps.

Providentially, I opened the Scriptures to 1 Peter. I found 1 Peter 2:21-25 particularly significant, so I decided to write it down, line by line, on cards for memorization. As I wrote down that first verse, I realized that my Lord had just graciously responded to my prayer.

He spoke in His still, small, voice this morning, quietly saying to my soul, “For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow in His steps”.

Friend, the One who created you speaks to you through His Word. But you must listen closely and have faith, or you will not hear Him.

So, what do you think?
