The Detour Leader

The Detour Leader…

Have you ever been driving on a trip and had to take a detour? You are not really sure where to go, but you follow the detour. Then other people start following you because they think you know where you are going. Now you are under pressure, because it’s bad enough being lost, but now you have followers while being lost.

So in the spiritual realm, what are you really following? Are you really following the Lord first in all things – or your pleasures; or the pursuit of status, or entertainment; or experiences; or happiness; or power; or selfish ambition; or money?

If you are following any one of these things, if it is not the Lord, then you are following something that can’t lead, like following a blind leader; a leader who is lost. Stop following those impulses, they will only lead you into the pit.

Follow the only one who really knows where he is going and knows how to lead your life for blessing, Jesus your true leader and Teacher, and you will never be lost.

He replied, “Every plant that my heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. Leave them; they are blind guides. If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” Matthew 15:13-14

Ask yourself today, are you pursuing things for yourself or God? Stop striving for works of the flesh. Instead concentrate on holy things that never fade and He will bless you.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
