Marching Orders from God!

You have kept record of my days of wandering. You have stored my tears in your bottle and counted each of them.

Psalm 56:8

One of my favorite ways to spend days of vacation is to drive through the country with no destination in mind.  There is no need to hurry, since you cannot be late in arriving at the place you will spend the night.  For a few days it is very relaxing and certainly enjoyable.

Many people spend their entire lives wandering from day to day and place to place without ever having a destination in mind!  

Then there are those who have goals in life, but the direction of their lives is to simply own more things than anyone else.  

Perhaps the most noble of the “godless” are the ones who want to “change the world” and make it a better place!  They want to convince everyone that it is urgent that they change their lifestyle to make life on earth better for everyone.

Followers of Jesus are not wandering through this life.  They have a destination and a God given plan for every day.   

But if your life seems to be one of wandering from one day to the next as a child of God, you need to pause long enough to listen to God.  Ask Him for His directions for this day.  When you walk those steps it will be a day like no other!

“Lord Jesus, give me my “Marching Orders” for today, and show me the way to go each and every day for the rest of my time here on this earth.  Praise Your Holy Name forever.  Amen.”
