And your ears will hear a Word behind you, saying, " This is the way, walk in it ", when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left. ISAIAH 30 : 21
HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE OLD SAYING .. " WALKING ON THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW " ? ..
Do you know that old sayings become old sayings because they are so strong and so intensely true !!
The world you live in today has become a very cruel, hard, frustrating, self-serving environment for you to cope with, and because of this you sometimes find yourself feeling very alone and especially lost for direction.
However if you read the above Scripture from Isaiah, then you have to realize and believe that you no longer have to go through each day not knowing which way to go.
You have an excellent navigator that HAS already promised that when you come to your crossroad you will hear His voice and He will direct you and guide you to your destination !!
No matter what .. If you will stay on the " straight and narrow " path, as God directs you to do, He WILL always lead you directly to His place of peace, joy and fulfillment.
SO WHICH WAY IS IT ?
Well that is simple .. JESUS IS THE WAY .. Jesus is the way and He HAS already shown you in which way you need to walk .. God HAS blessed you with the constant presence of His Holy Spirit in your life, to lead and guide you in the way you are to go.
God is urging you to walk on the narrow road that leads to life and He encourages you to stay off the broad way that will most certainly lead you to devastation and destruction.
When you feel as though life is beginning to take its toll, you grab onto this and you hold on with everything that you have got ..
"And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not " .. Galatians 6 : 9
No matter what happens in your life, you must always purpose to walk in God's ways .. Although you might be tired, frustrated and even a little confused, if you make the decision to keep trusting God, to keep depending on Him and being faithful by believing each and every promise He HAS made you, He WILL reward you, when He knows the season is right for you to receive His abundant blessings.
God never once promises you that if you follow Him, obey His Word and live your life according to His will, that He will wave His magic wand and reward you immediately .. but .. He does in no uncertain terms tell you that if you prove yourself to be faithful to Him and continue to do the right things, He WILL reward you .. in His time.
In Genesis 8 : 22, God tells you that for as long as the earth remains, there will be seed-time and harvest .. For our understanding .. What would happen if you were able to read this statement just slightly re-worded, so it would say .. For as long as the earth remains, there will be " seed " .. " time " .. and " harvest "
When you walk hand in hand with God along His path, you are going to have to show a great measure of maturity and patience !!
You could learn a great lesson from farmers when it comes to being patient .. They plant their seeds and then they expectantly wait for the day to come when they can harvest their crops .. The farmer although already looking forward to the harvest, has come to understand that he has to be a little patient, because it takes " time " for the planted seeds to grow before they can be harvested.
Patience Is The Key .. If you will listen, you will hear God's voice behind you, telling you, " This is the way, walk in it " .. and if you just keep putting one foot in front of the other, walking in the way that God has prescribed for you through His Word and by His Holy Spirit, He WILL establish His home in your heart and allow each and every blessing and reward that He HAS for you to rain down in abundance.
I WOULD RATHER WALK WITH GOD IN THE DARK THAN GO ALONE IN THE LIGHT
