When out and about with my daughter, I want and expect her to stay close. We all likely want to keep our children safe. The easiest way to keep them safe is to keep them close long enough to teach them how to live and where to be cautious. Our Heavenly Father is the same way!
God knows that the world is full of temptation and danger. He also has created us to have free will. We can make our own choices, but we can learn to make the best choices possible. By seeking God, we can learn the lessons that He has prepared for us. When we stay close to Him, we can call on Him to help us by giving His guidance, wisdom, commands, and protection. As we journey through our lives, we just need to stay close to God and listen to Him!
Stay close to God, seeking Him with Your heart and listening to His commands!
Thank You for giving me guidance and direction in my life. Help me to always seek You and listen to Your commands. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
