February 14, 2017 - God's Footprints


Where do you see God's footprints in your life?  For many years in my life I could't see it.  I tried everything even as a saved man I couldn't see them.  I began to realize the reason I couldn't see Him was I wasn't looking.  I wasn't willing to deepen my relationship with Him because I didn't want to change.  I knew His goal was a personal relationship with me.  I knew Jesus died on the cross for my sin.  I knew God loved me unconditionally.  So why couldn't I see His footprint?  I couldn't see Him because I was broken, I was ashamed, I thought God had given up on me.  I couldn't quit being caught up in myself.  Then one day someone shared a simple phrase that changed my life, "God uses broken people like me and you to fix broken people like me and you".  Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."  The Paths He speaks of are those footprints I ran from for so many years.  I encourage you to seek His face.


God bless you all,

Mike
