Have you ever heard the phrase: “Following in his father’s footsteps”?
This is usually a flattering thing to be told of yourself (especially if your father is someone that is succesful). Did you know that when we became a Christian, God in heaven became our heavenly Father? And we are His children.
If sons (and daughters) on earth would follow in their father’s footsteps, we ought to be following the footsteps of our heavenly father. Why? Simply because you cannot go wrong. Our earthly fathers are just as human as we are and so they are prone to making mistakes. However our heavenly Father will never make mistakes. He wants you to follow Him so that He can show you the way, the truth and the life you were meant to live.
If you need a role model in your life, don’t settle for second best. Look to God, for only He is the perfect role model to follow.
Lord, I want to follow in your footsteps, to walk with you so that I may experience the fullness of life. I pray Lord that more and more people would also experience you in their lives. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
