For You will light my lamp; the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. For by You I can run against a troop, by my God I can leap over a wall. As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him. Psalm 18:28-30, NKJV
The world will tell you to go about life your own way and not to let anyone/anything stand in your way. Unfortunately, “your” way might not be the “right” way, and while it’s bad enough that it may cause you to falter, it’s even worse when it leads others down a dark path. While “your” way may be paved with all the best intentions, it simply isn’t God’s way. In other words, “your” way is built upon your perceptions, motives, and desires…none by themselves are that of God and are fallible at best. However, God’s way is that of love and peace…encompassing more than merely self and resulting in prosperity for all who dare to receive it. God’s way is inclusive in that His desire is for all to receive His touch, vice the exclusive nature of “self.” Understand that God’s way is the only way to receive internal peace, everlasting love, and eternal life. So, there’s your way, and then there’s God’s way…but only His way will get you to where you need to and (and most importantly) desire to go. Today, make God’s way yours…then watch how His way brings renewed meaning to your life.
