The Right Path

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”

– Matthew 7:13,14

Yesterday we shared that God has laid a path before us, and we are encouraged to walk that path. Today, I want to ask you two questions relating to finding the right direction. First, is the way narrow? Is it almost unique? If it is, it’s probably the right path. In the scripture above, Jesus says there are two paths. There’s one broad and easy way that almost everyone takes. And then there’s a narrow gate with a challenging path, and only a few people choose it. Not many people examine if they are on the correct one. So if it’s a narrow path, that’s a good clue; it’s the right path.

Secondly, the Lord’s course draws us more into Christ’s likeness. Ask yourself if your path is making you less like Jesus. Is it making you stressed out and hurried? Are you an angrier person or less loving and kind? Are you not able to sleep at night? It’s probably not where God wants you to be. There’s a Bible promise that anyone who seeks the Lord will find Him. If you have a hunger and a devotion in your heart to find the path God wants you on, you’ll find it!

Friend, I encourage you not to worry or obsess over finding the right path. Ask the Lord to show you your way with the desire in your heart. Begin to connect with the Holy Spirit, and the opportunity will come before you. I pray that it comes very soon!

Prayer


Father, I desire to seek you and stay on the right path for my life. Connect me to the opportunities that will get me there.

Reflection


Have you taken time to reflect if you are on the correct path? Are you on the easy or the narrow way?
