Visualize you’re standing at the start of a forest with a golden light illuminating you. The way ahead is a little cloudy, but everytime you step forward a light shines. You feel good, safe and confident. You keep moving forward picking up items on the path to help you travel along the road. You come to a fork in the path. One of the paths is smooth. The other is grassy with thick, thorny bushes growing wild.
The walk is good so far, why risk it? You decide to take the smooth road. However, when you take steps the light isn’t shining on you. You search for a flashlight and realize you don’t have one. You cry out for a light and the still small voice says to you: I gave you what you need, but it’s not for this road. Search and you will find the right tool. You will need to turn around and go back to the fork.
You turn back around, slowly walking down the dark path, getting a little scared. You reach the fork stepping back into the light. You reach in your backpack and pull out some of the tools you picked up off the path. One of the tools is a large prunning shear.
This will help, you say to yourself. The still small voice agrees. You turn towards the path with high grass and bushes crowding. With shears in hand you start cutting the obstacles, seeing clearly because the light is bright. Illuminating the right areas to cut. You plow through and down the correct path. It takes some work, maybe a few cuts and bruises, but you’re alive. You trust the light, tools you pick up along the way and the voice guiding you. These things are good and have never steered you wrong.
You follow the paths taking you up mountains, down in the valley. At times narrow, rocky, sometimes sunny, sometimes rainy. While on this right path peace, joy, abundance, patience, love, blessings and more good things surround you and are within you. You have no doubts anymore. You know in your knower this is the Way.
This destination is worth it. Your final destination is peaceful, beautiful, glorious, calming. Think of your desired vacation times infinity!
“And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way.” Isaiah35:8 (NIV)
“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
Last Sunday during my daily Bible time I read Psalm 119. Verse 105 stood out to me.
“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”
I wrote it down in my tattered notebook filled with verses and revelations. Later on that day as soon as I went on instagram I see someone posted that same verse. I commented on her post. During my prayer at bedtime the Holy Spirit kept bringing to my mind all the various verses in the Bible about guides, paths, walking, directions and plans.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
“For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.” Psalm 48:14
“Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path; the one who hates correction will die.” Proverbs 15:10
These are a few of the many scriptures about guides, paths, walking, directions, plans and more. I’m sure you have a few favorites.
The recipe for kingdom living here on earth is found in the Bible, spoken to our spirit by the Holy Spirit. God is our guide. He lights the path we walk on when we follow the directions He leads us. Lights turn on as we follow the path.
What comes to mind when you think of the words path, direction, plans? Do you think of forward momentum, action, movement, doing, walking?
The beginning of your travel starts with faith in Jesus. Faith in Jesus makes His light shine on you. Faith is activated with action. Take the first step. Ask the question. Start doing the thing God puts on your heart. Stay in the Word, worship, praise and prayer. Listen to the still small voice, ask others for confirmation. Have a community of believers you travel with. These fellow believers are tools. I am an accesory God is using on your kingdom path.
Stay on the path God is guiding you. It may not be easy at times but He will never guide you in the wrong direction. Bon voyage!
