Topic: Following The Steps Of The Blessed
[Seeds of Destiny 8 July 2019 Devotional]
The Bible shows us the steps of the blessed which we can follow and experience the same blessed outcome.
SCRIPTURE: That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Whose footsteps you follow determines the outcome you experience in life.
A search through the Bible confirms that the Word of God reveals the pathway to the blessing in many ways. One of such pathways to the blessing is following the footsteps of the blessed. The Bible shows us the steps of the blessed which we can follow and experience the same blessed outcome.
The Scripture shows us men and women who inherited the promises; it shows us people who were faithful to God, people who served God faithfully and could not end empty-handedly. It reveals people who were loaded with the blessing, and what they did to attract the blessing, so that if we identify and follow their footsteps, we can also have their results.
For instance, the Bible shows us how Abraham who was a nonentity later turned into a celebrity, and the things he did to trigger such a drastic turnaround in his life. It shows us the life of Isaac, how he followed the footsteps of his father Abraham by obeying the instructions of God, and what became of him, etc.
And the Bible says, So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham (Galatians 3:9). So, if we follow the footsteps of Abraham and other great men in the Scripture or on the earth in contemporary times, we will also have their results.
Beloved, as God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo said, “You cannot follow the footsteps of giants and end as a dwarf.” Whose footsteps you follow determines the outcome you experience in life.
Remember this: Whose footsteps you follow determines the outcome you experience in life.
Look out for the action steps to follow in every story of great men in the Scripture.
Take the action steps, follow their footsteps, and expect their results.
Align your mentality with that of great men in Scripture and great children of God in our days.
PRAYER: Lord, give me the grace to uphold the principles of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and other great men of faith. Let me experience their results, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
