Directions for Life

Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart!

Psalm 119:2, nkjv

God as our Creator has specific directions for our lives. If we live according to His directions, our lives work—we are blessed, and we experience life the way it was meant to be lived. If we ignore or reject His directions, we do so to our own detriment and experience much less than He intended.

All around us are broken homes, broken hearts, broken hopes.

But God never intended us to be broken. He did not just create you and me, plop us down on Planet Earth, and say, “Happy birthday! Now you can guess your way through life.” Instead, He has given us directions, which form a pattern that will prevent breakage of our lives and will help to mend the brokenness already present if we follow them.

So . . . open the Creator’s manual for life—the Bible—and follow His directions.

THE KEY TO A LIFE OF IMPACT

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray

Cultivate a life-changing faith when you learn to implement The Daniel Key into your everyday life. Request your copy!
