The way of the LORD is a stronghold to the upright, But ruin to the workers of iniquity. Proverbs 10:29 NASB
I Just felt compelled today to share a word of encouragement for those who are trying to make decisions. Not necessarily life altering decisions, rather all of the little ones that keep you pure and holy before the Lord. Jesus said broad is the pathway that leads to destruction, but narrow is the way that leads to life. Keep on keeping on choosing the way that leads to life.
The way of the LORD – the way is a a pathway or a road leading to a destination. Figuratively it is a course or way of living. For those who have chosen to be a follower of Christ it means you have taken the exit leading to eternal life.
It’s a one way road. It’s beautiful with lots of adventure. Every entrapment can be avoided by following the clear delineated rules of the road. The Holy Spirit will never lead you astray.
Though some of the journey may be difficult, it is alway doable. There are a great cloud of witnesses cheering you along the way and at the finish encouraging you to remain faithful. They declare that God’s word was always true for their lives and He will remain with you to the end.
Don’t be tempted by shortcuts. Don’t let the decisions of the crowds be your standard of choice. Don’t allow the temporal rewards cloud your view of the eternal treasures. Don’t be fooled by any other voices of reason that are not compatible with God’s revealed word.
Choosing honesty, integrity, loyalty, and love will give you the strength of a good name. God’s path may not be easy, but there is a settled peace for those who walk in the way.
God grants you a firm conviction of knowing right while you are choosing right that His way is always right.
Solomon says living in the way of the Lord becomes the stronghold, the defense, the strength for you to stand when times are tough.
Two roads diverged…always choose God’s way. You will be fortified in your decision to follow His leading.
Blessings Love y’all
