How many of you have a dog that loves to follow you around? As soon as you get up, he/she is at your feet waiting for you to take your first step of the day. How many have a dog that when you walk from the bedroom to the kitchen, is right on your feet just waiting for your next step. How many have a dog that lays, not by your feet, but on your feet when you are sitting in your desk chair working? Dogs love playing ‘follow the leader’. A dog knows that its master is its owner. In our house, our black lab Rocky, follows me around all day. If I am upstairs working, he is by my feet. The second I get up and start to walk, he immediately jumps up and follows me. He does it because he has an unconditional love for us. He is loyal and never wants us to be alone.
How many of us are the same way with our amazing God? When we wake up in the morning, are we kneeling at the feet of Him praising Him and excited to begin the day with our Lord? How often do you think of God during the day? Do you show excitement to Him when things happen? We could learn a lot of our pets and loyalty to our owner, our Father.
We have the opportunity to be just like our pets. God is with us wherever we go. He is omnipresent and all we have to do is call out to Him for help when we need it. Whether we are at work, at home, or anywhere else we may be; God is there. Let’s try now by being like our animals. It is morning time, praise God for allowing you to wake up and spend another day in His world. Let’s “follow the Leader” like our dogs do. Wherever we go, He needs to be on our mind and in our hearts. God is amazing and we should not be afraid to spread our excitement for Him.
God is Good.
Mark 1: 16-18 And as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.
