“…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)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE PILOT IN COMMAND

“Those who serve God with their heart are those who allow God to give birth to their heart’s desires. These are those who put God to where He really belongs: not in the luggage compartment, not in economy class, not in business class not in first class by in the cockpit !!! For them God IS THE PILOT IN COMMAND. Their heart is the cockpit where God dwells and files the flight plan: God decides the destination and the itinerary leading safely to that place at God’s appointed time.”

THE MOST PRECIOUS THING

“If we were to see things the way God does, we would see the immense value of godly character that comes from loving God and shunning evil. In fact, it is the most precious thing that we possess in God’s sight.”

GOD’S APPOINTMENT IN THE WILDERNESS

“Ask anyone and they will tell you that they long to hear from God, to have a personal encounter with Him, to know His will and direction for their life. But many of us fail to realize that often God gives us an appointment in the wilderness.”
