His Footsteps

“Yes, the Lord will give what is good; and our land will yield its increase. Righteousness will go before Him, and shall make His footsteps our pathway.”            Psalm 85:12-13

“Follow Me” said Jesus in Matthew 4:19

“For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:”                 1 Peter 2:21

“It’s Not About Money”

The Lord told me this when I was taking a job.  It’s true that nearly every day I was there, God gave me a blog to write.  The money was secondary.

The Lord showed me things in the Spirit and I followed Jesus’ commands on loving, forgiving and praying for people. We encouraged each other and it was a surprise blessing to see scripture on the wall.

I’m sharing this because prophecy is for the body of Christ (1Corinthians 12:27). I was taught that when you hear a prophetic word, if it pertains to you it will ping in your heart and you can receive it for yourself, as in Isaiah 6:8 (NIV), “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I. Send me!'”

If you follow your heart and honor God and people, He will make you feel so alive, no matter what you’re doing – your living for Him and with Him.

“Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If any of you wants to be My follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow Me.” Matthew 16:24 (NLT).

“If anyone serves Me, he must follow Me; and where I am, there will My servant be also. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:26.

“Everything”

my friend said, when I asked, “What does God want from me?”

It’s more like, actions are good, helping others, attending church, etc.  but he wants your whole heart.

Jesus came to me in a vision and said “Follow Me.”  It was four years ago during a mission trip.  I so don’t want to miss it.  I dove into every command of His.  Love one another resonating still today.
