GOD IS ABLE TO LEAD HIS PEOPLE
Thanks be unto God today that He is able to lead His people in troubled times. God can also lead His people through the valley of the shadow of death. He can lead His people to green pastures. He can lead His people by His grace and mercy. Take time today to reflect upon how God has led you this far in your life. Where we are, is because of God’s leading. None of us has made it on our own. God has guided us every step of the way. Colossians 3:15 is our scripture lesson today.
“And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.”
In this text, the writer clearly states that in this new life with Christ, God is able to lead His people. He can lead them to live in peace. He can lead them to a place of holiness. He can lead them to live a life that is completely different from the life outside of His presence. They can experience peace even when there are troubles and trials surrounding them. God can lead them in ways in which they will become filled with meekness and kindness. Their lives will remain totally different, and they will be able to handle things in ways that they have never experienced before. This new life comes when one accepts Christ, throws off their old sinful ways and puts on the new ways of living. What a difference it makes in your life when the Lord leads you.
