Advent Devotion for December 4, 2014

Psalm 85:1-2; 8-13

“Righteous goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.”

Last Christmas my children told me I had broken the tradition because I did not buy each of the girls a Pandora charm.   This year I am prepared. They are wrapped and waiting on the tree.

Since selecting the appropriate charm takes time, the sales clerk and I had time to talk. We talked of spiritual things and she told me how the universe speaks and leads to the desires of the heart. She said it’s an energy and it doesn’t matter what you call it: karma, chi, or energy. I told her I too was a spiritual person and while I respect her views that it does matter what you call the energy. I told her the name of the energy, the chi, and the karma is God. And, it is He who makes all things possible. I shared with her that the guidance she was seeking is found in God through the Holy Spirit.   Jesus can be her guide.

In retrospect, I pray a seed has been planted to help prepare a way for her to follow His steps to righteousness.

Prayer: Lord, may we help prepare the way as we call upon you as Savior, our Lord Jesus Christ, who is our salvation.
