What I’m listening to: Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer by Gene Autry
Welcome to Day 14 of our Advent series! If you’re up to date, awesome, if not, be sure to check out the previous posts. The first one explains a little more about the series. Now, let’s go back to where we last left off in Luke.
When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
Luke 2:15 (NIV)
In our relationship with God we have a choice between being a Jonah or being a shepherd. We either can run away from or towards what the Lord wants us to do. Here in Luke the shepherds left the fields to see what the Lord had told them about. We too should leave the things that we have tasked ourselves with when the Lord calls us. We don’t have to fear the consequences of these actions because God promises to take care of us. When we trust God’s goals for us, we must also trust that he has a plan to get us there.
Prayer Prompt: Ask God to show you the path he wants you to take to achieve His plan for you.
