Romans 8:14
“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons (and daughters) of God.”

Certainly, this verse (and a litany of others) teach us that the Christian faith is ORGANIC and DYNAMIC.

A comforting layer of meaning in this particular passage arises when we consider that there are seasons and circumstances the Lord leads us into by His Spirit, and when we submit and display contentment, it shows we are children of God.

Yes it means moment-by-moment obedience, but when we are not always faithful in these episodes, we may take comfort with our overall track record of our accepting and thriving in the seasons and narratives we find ourselves in.

I also find it assuring that, at times, we are “led along” while at other times, “carried along” (2 Peter 1:21).

Footprints, anyone?

  1. The solitary footsteps show when we were not alone, but The Lord in fact was carrying us. How comforting it is to know that we are never alone for He has promised never to leave us nor forsake us. The same principle should be applied our carrying our burdens. For Jesus tells us to cast our cares upon Him. to not be anxious or worried, to leave our burdens with Him. When we relinquish them to Him, how “light” they have become! For He has taken them upon Himself, and they are no longer ours to carry. (Matt 11:28-30)

      1. Thank you Pastor Scott for your uplifting messages and insight into God’s Word. We do indeed speak the same language for we are one in Christ – praise the Lord! I trust you are well. Blessings to you and your family. Sandy
