After a time of prayer and meditation, I feel right at home with the challenge God has given to me in 2014. Psalm 1:6 has been the chapter and verse that will lead me each day to an adventure in my walk with God. It will be interesting to take note of the road He leads me on and just how much notice I will be getting while watching Him chart my life journey.
Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
This year I will be reading mainly through the Psalms and using The Message the first half of the year and switching to the American Standard Version the second half as my devotional translation of the Bible.
It will be quite a journey and I am thrilled that you will be able to walk that road with me.
