How do you know you are on the right path?
Once you get over the initial distraction of your new surroundings you may wonder, “Am I really doing what God has asked me to do?”
What I have done to help me identify if I am on the right path is record in a journal the information God is revealing to me. I carry a journal around with me nearly everywhere I go. I primarily use it in meetings, at church, and in my quiet time.
I find that my quiet time with God is the most important time and productive when it comes to receiving direction. Secondarily, God will send people into my life with a message of encouragement that affirms my path, or God will use me to share the Word of God and the Gospel of Jesus Christ with someone who does not know Christ. Often these people will come into relationship with Jesus and I cannot take any credit for the event because the circumstances are too ironic.
When we arrived in Harrison, Arkansas we saw a rainbow.
This morning I took this picture while doing my quiet time.
Not long after the first picture, my daughter Olivia yells, “A rainbow, look, a rainbow.”
The timing of the rainbow sighting was beyond coincidental, as I was praying through my Prayer Map. Praying about what to blog about. Truthfully, I cannot communicate the way God used the rainbow to minister to me. It’s beyond words.
In the next few days I will be releasing a new Devotion on the Book of Luke. (Partially, in response to the interaction with God over the last few days.)
In the mean time:
Father in Heaven, the greatest sign you have sent the world was the knowledge of the coming of the Savior of the world. The greatest gift you have provided this earth with is the coming of the Savior Jesus Christ. We acknowledge Jesus as Your Son, who died for the sins of all men, who was buried, who resurrected, who ascended, and will return someday. All according to the scriptures and prophets. Help us to be worthy of the purpose and calling you have in us individually, sharing this truth with others. Help us to share how you have transformed our lives and the magnificence of your love made known through your Son Jesus. It’s in His name we pray. Amen
