Are you on the path of your destiny in God?
This path reminds me of the path that the Lord has for each of us from the foundation of the world.
Ephesians 2:10 NKJV “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
God has a path for each of us to walk in. I wonder how many people actually follow it?
How do I get on the path that God has for me to walk in, Pastor Glenn?
We make the choice to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior; we get born-again. The path that the Lord has for us is called the path of holiness.
Isaiah 35:8-9 NKJV “A highway shall be there, and a road, And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it, But it shall be for others. Whoever walks the road, although a fool, Shall not go astray. No lion shall be there, Nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it; It shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk there.”
The redeemed travel this path, those who are born-again. The Lord’s protection will be with us as we travel down this highway.
Levitcus 20:26 NKJV “And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine.”
Leviticus gives us an idea of what holiness is; we are to be separate from the people of the world. When we choose to follow Jesus, we simply make the choice to obey the Word of God. Jesus is the Word.
1 Peter 1:13-16 NKJV “Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”
The Apostle Peter tells us to be obedient children. We are called of God to obey His Word.
We are to be separated from the world and separated unto God.
2 Corinthians 6:16-18 NKJV “And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.”“I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.”
As we make choice in our hearts to obey the Word of God, we begin our journey down the path that He has for us.
Psalm 119:105 NKJV “Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.”
The lamps in those days were not so bright. Today we have LED Tach lights that shine bright over 100 yards. But in Biblical times a person had to bend at the waist and hold the lamp down towards their feet to see where they were stepping. This gives a picture of how diligently and earnestly we should follow the Word of God so it can direct our steps.
Let’s look at Psalm 119:105 in context.
Psalm 119:97-106 NKJV “Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.You, through Your commandments, make me wiser than my enemies; For they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers, For Your testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, Because I keep Your precepts. I have restrained my feet from every evil way, That I may keep Your word. I have not departed from Your judgments, For You Yourself have taught me. How sweet are Your words to my taste, Sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way. (Psalm 119:105) Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. I have sworn and confirmed That I will keep Your righteous judgments.”
Do you understand Royal One? For His Word to be a lamp unto your feet, you must make the choice to obey it. We don’t obey the Word of God because the Lord is hard task master; we obey it out of love.
John 14:23-24 NKJV “Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.”
Are you on the path that the Lord has set apart just for you? You must make a heart choice to obey His Word and separate yourself from worldly living, sin. Jesus defeated sin, it no longer has power over you. You can make the choice to truly follow Him. Then you will discover your destiny in God.
Matthew 22:14 NKJV “For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Why are only a few chosen pastor Glenn? Because you must choose to be chosen. YOU must choose to obey the Word of God.
If YOU need to repent for any reason; (uproot the seeds of sin that you have sown) DO IT! YOU must turn from your sin, disobedience to the Word of God, and turn back to God, and make the choice to obey His Word; then ask for forgiveness in the name of Jesus! Forgive everyone who has ever harmed you; forgive yourself for the hurt that you have done to others and to the heart of God.
