“…your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

Isaiah 30:20-21


There is no state of being as rewarding as living in tune with God. The Bible says in Psalm 103:7, “He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel.”

And when God made known His ways to Moses, he continued to walk in them. That is what singled him out as a friend of God. The generals of God throughout history understood this secret, that knowing God is not only to see His works but to learn His ways.


In David’s last words to his son, Solomon who was to succeed him as king, he charged him to walk in God’s ways. (1 Kings 2:3) When God appeared to Solomon in a dream and asked him his request, He made it clear that the blessing of God would never depart from him only if he walked in God’s ways. (1 Kings 3:14)


Despite the incredible gift of divine wisdom that gave him fame that spread to the four corners of the earth, at the end of his life, Solomon did not walk in God’s ways. And God was not so interested in the beautiful temple Solomon built for Him as in His position in Solomon’s heart.


Ask yourself: Do you want to be known only as someone who received God’s miracles, who worked for God’s cause or who walked in His ways? Many want to work for Jesus but few are ready to be His friend. To be His friend, you have to walk in His ways. How do we know His ways?  Through His Word, by His Spirit.


Even though your life, your feelings, your situation may be unsteady, you can only remain steady when you decide against the odds, to walk in God’s ways. Then, you can say together with the generals of faith that your weakness was turned to strength. (Hebrews 11:34)









“Where we desire vengeance, God pursues mercy. Where we encourage pride, God exalts the humble, where we focus on the outside, God looks at the heart. That is the greatest mystery of all – the God who created us now dwells not in temples built with human hands but within us by faith in our heart. (Acts 17:24).”


“IIf you enter a lift to go to the penthouse of a skyscraper building, how many of you would first press to go to down to the underground car park? No one! Yet, in God’s way of doing things, it is our job to submit and humble ourselves under Him and His job to lift us up in His time and in His way. In other words, humility is God’s lift for elevation.”


“In Matthew 22:21 Jesus said, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” What is of God must return to Him. With the Word of God in your heart, you can one day return to Him in the world of glory.”
