January 7: Direction


Scripture Lesson: 2 Thessalonians 3:5


In 1985, Lou Brock and Hoyt Wilhelm were elected to the Hall of Fame. At the time of his election, Wilhelm had appeared in more games than any other pitcher, and currently stands fifth on the all-time appearance list with 1070 games. Wilhelm was best known for throwing the knuckleball. Teammate Brooks Robinson of the Orioles said, “He had the best knuckleball you’d ever want to see. He knew where it was going when he threw it, but when he got two strikes on you, he’d break one out that even he didn’t know where it was going.” To help in handling Wilhelm’s knuckleball, Paul Richard developed the oversized catcher’s mitt.


Paul urges the church at Thessalonica to allow the Lord to “direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance.” Sometimes we resist being directed. We feel as if we know the best way to go. One of the biggest hindrances to our growth as a Christian is to think we can do it ourselves. When we allow God to direct our lives instead of directing our own, we begin to grow in our faith. There is no better place to be as a believer than in the midst of God’s love and for our faith to be growing and maturing through imitating Jesus’ perseverance. It takes being directed by God instead of trying to direct God!

  1. What can you do to allow God to direct your life?

  2. What does it take to give up controlling the direction of your life?

  3. Describe the persistent faith of Jesus.

Greyhound Bus Company used to have a slogan, “Go Greyhound and leave the driving to us.” In a faith relationship with Jesus, we need to go Jesus and the leave the direction of our lives to Him.

Hi, I do think your blog could be having web browser compatibility problems.
When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful website!
