Follow Me

A Short Devotion :)

When I hear the words "Follow Me" what comes to mind is complete trust.

When Jesus said these words to the disciples he gave them one foreshadowing to what they were in for. It wasn't, "You guys will help write the new testament -the second part of the bible and 2000 years later the best selling book of all time. No it was much more simple and to the point.

"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." (Mark 1:17 NIV)

They're new purpose was to catch people for God's kingdom. May I encourage you to trust God. Follow him where ever he is calling you to go. Say whatever He is putting on your heart.

So many times we get stressed because we focus on a small part of the frame when we should be trusting God for the completion of life's painting." His word promises the faithfulness of this completion.

..being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6

But notice this is all about God's timing not ours. That is why it's important we trust God and follow him. Not tell God to trust our decisions and follow us. Again scripture is very clear to what happens when we execute this fully dedicated heart of trust.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:4-6

God Bless
