“…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.”
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)
