In January of 2009 God spoke to the mudpreacher about following His path. He brought to his heart anew Psalm 25:4&5 – “Show me Your ways, O Lord; Teach me Your paths. Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. He then opened His word to reveal that He will show us His ways only if we HONOR Him in every area of our life.
If we seek to walk in God’s pathway of blessing, we must honorHim and all those whom He tells us to honor. He reveals His ways when we give our heart to honoring those He has placed in our lives. Once we commit to learning His ways, He will REWARD us with the ongoing revelation of His pathway of blessing.
God further revealed that Proverbs 3:5,6 is all about finding that pathway of blessing. He gave the mudpreacher a personalized version of the verse that showed we must Honor our Lord Jesus Christ in every area of our life. Only as we do will God direct us into His Pathway of Blessing.
Then God burdened me about how to bring Christ into my family in a substantive way. Now that the six children are grown and grandchildren are on the scene, how can we Honor Christ at our family gatherings. God revealed the need to have “Grandfather Moments” when I share with the children and grandchildren how God has led me to find His “Pathway of Blessing”.
That desire has led to this devotional sight. As time goes on I will record God’s leading in my life from the journals I have kept over the past 35 years. This will be the basis for those “grandfather moments” with my children, grandchildren and hopefully great-grandchildren. May you find God’s “pathway of blessing” for your life.
