Day 118- Richmond, Virginia: Finding Our Way
What drives us towards where we are going? Are we walking, jogging, or running towards the destination that has been chosen by God for us? How do we know what is going to happen in our lives? All we have to do is look around us and see the chaos of the world to realize that we need God more than ever to answer these critical questions. God is equally relying on us to find our way in order for us to help lead more followers towards the cross.
From Psalms comes a message very empowering that gives us starting point from which to begin to find our balance coexisting with God by our side: “Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name; And deliver us and forgive our sins for Your name’s sake”. When we say this prayer we are uplifted by God and we are forgiven for our sins. The power of prayer is inspirational and when we pray we call upon God to become a part of our lives. We need God and cannot make it without the blessings of our Father. If we ignore the truth, the truth will come back up in the end on Judgment Day regardless if we try to convenience ourselves otherwise.
God is happy when those who are struggling to find their faith, return back to God. In Luke he describes the joy that God has when the lost sheep is found, “’Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ “I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance”. God is not looking for those who think that they are a shoe in for Heaven. He is looking and searching to save those sheep that are sinners and want to repent in spite of their shortcomings. We are all lost and with God’s blessings we are found.
