Psalm37:23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord, And He delights in his way. I watch stuff about Bigfoot from time to time and I am always amazed at how excited the Bigfoot researchers get when they see a footprint of a supposed Bigfoot. They immediately make a cast from plaster and bring it in to examine it. If we were to have a cast made of our walk with the Lord, could clear footprints be found? What would those footprints look like? If we are found sharing the gospel then scripture says they are beautiful!! Romans 10:15 But how are they to preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!” And this footprint would be much bigger than we think because it is a footprint that shows lives are being changed for eternity.
Wherever we go we should be leaving deep footprints of sharing the gospel and seeing lives changed for eternity. The Great Commission given to us by God is found in Matthew 28:19-20 where it says 19 Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,20 teaching them to follow all that I commanded you; and behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Going is where we Hit Our Stride in our walk with God. God fills us, equips us, empowers us, and sends us to do the Main Thing, which is tell the lost about the hope found in Jesus. And those footprints can be clearly seen when the person making them is allowing God to use them for His Glory.
Time is short and we must be about the Lord's work. The prophet Isaiah said it this way in Isaiah 55:Seek the Lord while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. The Apostle Paul said it this way in Ephesians 5:16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. If I am hitting my stride as a believer the Lord has my stride moving from person to person sharing my testimony of God's love for me and offering it to them. Lets hit our stride today and do the Main Thing God wants from those who know Him. Time to start making. God-sized footprints that show He is at work in our life!
