Praise Jesus – written by Pastor Teresa Miller
Where He leads me I will follow. I am not my own. Who am I to tell Him, I will follow you here, but not there. I will do this, but not that. I will accept your will for my life in this area, but not in the other. I have been bought with an expensive price. Jesus paid my ultimate penalty, by shedding His precious blood to ransom me. Therefore, I am a soldier in God’s army under His divine authority. My job is to follow His commands. I cannot do my own thing. He is my Commander and Chief. I choose to wait on His divine instructions and guidance for each new day.
Sure, I have had losses and experienced pain. Life has taken some undesirable turns for me that was unexpected, but I will not become bitter. I dare not question His Omniscience. As my father used to tell us growing up, “no accidents happen to the people of God.” My life is directed by the Lord; and everything that I have experienced has brought me closer to Him. The voyage has been a little tumultuous and turbulent at times, but it has never overtaken me. Each trial, each resisted temptation is treasured oil in my alabaster box. I am being equipped to help someone else. I am yet standing because of the mercies and grace of God.
So as the Christian song says, “courage my soul and let us journey on. Though the night seems dark, it won’t be very long. Thanks be to God the morning light has come. And the storm is passing over hallelujah!” Praise Jesus!!!
