Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Life – Psalm 16:11 – Path Of Life – Growing As Disciples

You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.  Psalm 16:11 (NIV)

Walk With Me

Walk with me. That is the invitation that I am setting before you today. Will you accept my invitation? Will you walk with me? Yes Lord, I will gladly and enthusiastically accept your invitation to walk with you. Don’t you have questions? Isn’t there anything that you want to know before you say yes to walking with me? Wouldn’t you like to know where we will be walking? Don’t you want to know what I might ask you to do for me? I already know all I need to know. What do you know? I know it is you that is asking me to walk with you. I am humbled and honored to hear that you are calling me to walk with you. Why me? I am nothing special. I have done nothing to earn your favor. You are wrong. You are special in my sight. You are also right. You have done nothing to earn my favor. But you have heard my call. You have turned to follow me on the path of life. You know that I love you. I also love you. That is why I have no hesitation in saying yes to your calling me to walk with you. Yes, I know. There is more that you want to tell me. There is more that you know. Yes, I have more to say. Yes, I have more that I know about walking with you.

When I walk with you on the path of life I will not be breaking new ground. What do you mean by that? I will not be out running ahead of you. That’s right. You will be leading me. I will be following you or walking right alongside of you. In fact I will be holding on to you as you are holding on to me. Yes, that’s true. So, knowing that gives me peace and confidence. I am not alone. You will be with me every step of the way. I will also feel secure and protected knowing that I am holding on to you as you are holding on to me. I will not wander off the path of life because we are holding on to each other. You’re right.

When I walk with you on the path of life there will be plenty of things that I will leave behind. There is a lot that I will walk away from. Like what? I will walk away from the darkness of this world. I will leave behind the pleasures and deceitfulness of sin. I will leave behind all the ways in which I once lived that were not pleasing to you. Yes, you will. You will give me a completely new life as I follow you. Yes, I will.

When I walk with you on the path of life you will be teaching me. You will be counseling me. You will be giving me your guidance and direction. Yes, I will. We will be talking to each other all the time. Yes, we will. I will listen to you. Yes, you will. You will listen to me. Yes, I will. What an honor. What a joy. What a privilege it is to follow you on the path of life. Yes, I accept you invitation. Yes, I have heard your call. Yes, I will follow you to wherever you lead me. Yes, I will do whatever you ask of me.

Lord, thank you for making the path of life known to me. Help me to keep following you on the path of life. Guard me from straying off your path of life into the evil of this world. Lead me, teach me and counsel me as I follow you. Amen

Laid The Foundation On Rock

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Rhythms - Luke 6:46-49 - Laid The Foundation On Rock - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Rhythms – Luke 6:46-49 – Laid The Foundation On Rock – Growing As Disciples

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.” Luke 6:46-49 (NIV)

Storms 

Storms will come in life. You can be certain of that. That should come as no surprise to you. It doesn’t. There is one very important question about the storms of life that I want to ask you. What question is that? Will your life be able to withstand the storms of life that are certain to come your way? How could I possibly know the answer to that question? I have no idea of what type of storms will come my way. How could I possibly know if I will be able to withstand the unknown storms of life? That may sound like a good answer to you, but it is not. Why is that? Everyone has a foundation on which they will build their life. You and every one else in the world must choose what will be the foundation of their life. What are some of the foundations on which people will build their lives? I think I can answer that question. Go ahead, I’m listening. Some people will build the foundation of their life on money. The foundation of their life will rest on all that they have been able to acquire. Others will build the foundation of their life on power. The foundation of their life will rest on who answers to them. Still others will build the foundation of their life on position. The foundation of their life will rest on the status that they have attained in life. Do any of these seem like a strong and sure foundation for your life?  Do you want to build the foundation of your life on money, power or position? Is any one or all three of these worthy of being the foundation on which you will build your life? These are not strong and sure foundations. Any one or all three of these could be swept away in an instant by the storms of life. Yes, they could. Yes, they will. None of these are worthy of being the foundation of my life. No, they are not. 

Do you know the foundation on which you want to build your life? Yes, I do. Tell me about the foundation on which you want to build your life.  I want the foundation of my life to be built on hearing and putting your word into practice. I will come to meet with you in your word. I will listen attentively to all that you have to say to me. I will do all that you ask of me. You will be the foundation of my life. Yes, I will. You will help me to stand strong and secure in any storm of life. Yes, I will. You are my strong and secure foundation. Yes, I am.

Lord, I will dig down deep and allow your word to become the strong and sure foundation of my life. I will listen attentively to all that you have to say to me in your word. I will gladly do all that you ask of me as I put your word into practice every day in my life. Amen
