Joshua 3:3 Led By God’s Word And Worship

giving orders to the people: “When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the Levitical priests carrying it, you are to move out from your positions and follow it.” Joshua 3:3

Very few people will blaze a new trail into a completely unknown territory. When traveling to a new place, most people will follow someone else’s path or directions.

Depending upon whose directions one is following, will depend upon how well the travel will go and whether one will actually get to the desired destination or not. There are many who will lead a person incorrectly down the wrong path.

Joshua had the people told that when they see the ark of the covenant and the priests carrying it set out, they are to follow it across the river.

There are many different types of map programs that a person can use to be given directions on how to get from one location to another. Some are very detailed and reliable, while others are less detailed and not as reliable.

Every person is on a journey throughout their life. Each person has to choose how he will be led through this journey. The world tries to say that there are many different ways to get to heaven, however God says that there is only one way.

In His infinite wisdom, God has given believers His word in the Bible to guide them on their journey just as the Israelites had the ark of the covenant to lead them. The Bible gives all the needed details as to how to live for God and complete the journey.

As believers are traveling along that path, they are also to worship God, as the Israelites did with being led by the Levites. Worship gives God praise for what He is doing.

Being led by God’s word and worship will open doors for God to open the pathway through the river of life.

In your journey through this life, you will be following a path of some sort that someone has blazed. Do not allow yourself to be caught up in following the path of the world but follow the path God has for you.

Search through His word how you are to live your life. Then as you are traveling give God praise and worship Him for what He has done and is doing. Allow His word and worship to lead you through the river.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will allow God’s word to guide your every action and move; that you will worship God with every step and breath you take; and that you will see the path God has for you to take.

Thank You For A Great Year

I want to say a great big ‘THANK YOU’ to everyone around the world who has chosen to stop by my devotional blog and read it and for many to subscribe to it in the year of 2021!

It was an amazing year for my blog. There were 81,271 views last year, nearly doubling the highest number of views ever on this blog. There were 58,256 visitors to the blog, also nearly doubling the highest ever.

God had led me to start this blog back in 2014. I had no idea if anyone would actually read it or begin to follow it. Over the years since, God has led me to include articles of experiences, various studies on different subjects, book and movie reviews, verse of the day, giving thanks verses, and memory verses.

Although it is great to have such high numbers of viewers and followers, my prayer is that lives are being changed for God. I trust that the many who read these posts are encouraged to draw closer to God, become more like Jesus, read the Bible more, and trust God more. If these things have not occurred, this blog has failed.

However, I believe that God’s word is living and active. As it goes out and is read by people around the world, it is changing lives. Some will move away from God, while others will draw closer to God.

This blog has the ability to get God’s word into nations and places that the world does not want anything to do with Jesus. It can reach people of every nation twenty-four hours a day.

As you read this blog, feel free to share it with others. Get the word of God out to the rest of the world. Let people know what they are missing without reading God’s word.

If something is written that touches your life, please let me know. It is very encouraging to hear what God is doing in the lives of people all around the world. Everyone has a story to tell about their experience with God and His word in their lives. What is your story? Again, thank you for taking the time to stop by and read this devotional blog.

May you hunger for more and more of God’s word in your life. May the God of heaven and earth fill your days with His overwhelming presence and blessings and guide you by His Holy Spirit as you make Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life.
