Bible Life Coaching with Sheri Rose Shepherd - Sunday, November 23, 2014

But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God.” - Ruth 1:16
Relationships that are put together by God are stronger than relationships of blood. After Ruth’s husband’s death, she knew it was better to follow someone who would lead her to her God given destiny. As important as family is, be careful that those you follow (even if they’re family) are following and seeking God first. If not, even those who you love the most can lead you away from God
Watch today's video and get a good look at who's in your inner circle and who may need to be removed.
My beloved daughter,
I gave you family, and my greatest desire is that you and your family would follow me with your whole heart. I do not force my children to follow me. Each one of them makes the choice. As much as I want you to follow your mother and your father, if they do not follow me, be careful not to allow the things that they say and do to confuse you or cloud you from seeing how faithful I am to you. First and foremost you are my child. I want you to always honor your parents by treating them with respect.
But I want you to seek me above all else and do what is right in my sight, always. This will not be easy my love, but it will bring your soul perfect peace that passes all human understanding even in the most difficult family situations.
Your heavenly father
Dear God, I lift your daughter up before you today. I pray that you would put a guard over her heart and over her mind help her to follow those who lead her into a closer and intimate relationship with you. Give her wisdom to discern between wrong and right when watching others living out their lives and walking out their faith in front of her. Amen.
The best person for you to follow is the one that leads you into a closer relationship with God.
