I Peter 2:20,21 - Stepping Forward in Following.

Thought/Prayer:  Topics:  2 at end.

“For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.  For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:  For to this have ye been called; for Christ also has suffered for you, leaving you a model that ye should follow in his steps: . . .”  KJV http://www.bible.com/  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

When we follow in Christ’s steps and suffer as He did, we are following a model that He not only set forth, but experienced.  One thing about it:  If we are to follow in His steps, we must step forward.  Even though we follow, we still must walk.  As new years come to us, perhaps we may take time to assess whether we have been stepping forward in following his pathways.  How do we know where to walk without having a leader?  How do we walk when there is no known path to follow?  We must be alert.

In pro-life work, sometimes the path seems very indistinct; we wonder where out next footprint should show up in the sand or mud.  Lord, this week, at the beginning of a new year, help us to seek Your way only, help us to be diligent about it; help us to seek and seek – and we know we will find both You and the pathway you would have each of us follow, as we are stepping out, as you have stepped out for us.

Topics: Pray for wisdom of our nation’s leadership to keep our nation safe.
Pray for Prayer Pivot for Life, that the new booklet of devotions will in some manner accomplish the Lord’s work regarding prayers for LIFE.
