Path of Life

“Show me the path of life…” Psalm 16:11

stay on the pathGod knows exactly what is going on in your world. He has provided everything you need to live during these times; and actually He has provided a way for you to live in peace even during times of trouble.

Find the path of life, the peace of God. Once you find the path of life, stay there, don’t let your heart be troubled. Stop allowing yourself stray off the path, lost and fearful.

You have a choice; you simple stay on the path. You have a choice daily; so don’t allow your circumstances to be in charge. You have been given the choice and you can choose peace over fear, anxiety, and stress. You can choose faith over fear; it is that simple. When you choose faith over fear you just choose life instead of death. When you choose peace over anxiety and stress you have again chosen life. The enemy wants to convince you that everything is hopeless, but the God of all peace wants you to know that you have a choice, He says in Deut. 30:15-16, (paraphrased) “Choose life and you shall live.”

It is a choice of life over death, it is that important of a choice. Think about your last doctor’s visit. If you have a heart condition he made it very clear how harmful certain things like too much sugar and salt are to your health. It is hard to keep yourself from eating these things, but, for your health’s sake you can do it. Everyday that you overcome the temptation not to eat those things that are harming your body you feel a difference. You feel stronger and have more energy. Did you know that worry and fear are more harmful to our body than too much sugar and salt? That is why Jesus said, “Stop allowing yourself to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated, cowardly and unsettled.” I repeat, just stop allowing it; you do have a choice, choose the path of life and wal

The Path Of Life

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy.  At your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11

God wants to show you the path of life He has prepared for you.  He has a prepared a unique path for you and with just a few steps you can be on your way.  You will know you are on that path by the joy that floods your soul. All along the way if you listen closely, you will hear Him say, “This is the way, walk in it.” Staying on the path of life that God has prepared is one of the greatest joys a Christian can have because in his presence there is fullness of joy!

Today, if you are seeking to know the joy of being on the right path there are just two steps:  first listen for God’s voice.  Once your ear is tuned to hear His voice then you will know it is Him when He calls.  Jesus said “My sheep hear my voice.”

The next step is obedience.  Being obedient to what He says is actually how you stay on the right path.  Sometimes it is not easy to stay on the path because you don’t want to change your ways.  You may have been going the wrong way so long it will require a complete turn-around to get on the path of life.  This I know, the higher you go up a mountain path the more narrow it becomes and harder to climb.

Everyone at some point in their life wants to know where their particular path of life is.  I have found that when you ask God with a sincere heart, He will show you.  And just as climbing up a high mountain is not for amateurs; so it is with God’s calling.  If you know that you’re calling is great, then you must know that your path will be narrow.

If you are ready to get on the path of life, the path that leads to your destiny, ask the Lord to show you.  Spend quiet time with Him, read His word, and listen. Don’t give in to distractions, if you can’t hear Him, go to a quieter place.  Seek Him diligently and ask Him to show you the next step before you move forward.

We are living in the days when we must not take a step that is not prompted and directed by the Spirit of God.  Expect Him to guide you continually, and know that He will!
