How do you know what path to take? I see daily that many of my friends are experiencing the trials and tribulations of life. Day in & day out I see pleas for help. Several have come to me for advice and/or direction. They ask how they can change their life. I tell everyone the same thing every time. The correct path to take for CHANGE STARTS WITH REPENTANCE… True Repentance begins in your mind with a thought, then it’s felt in your heart, then spoken from your mouth. Most people do the first three things with relative ease however it doesn’t stop there.. Those three things are followed by ACTION…. Repentance is not doing the same things and expecting a different result. Repentance requires you to STOP and change directions. It means drawing a line in the sand and shouting, “NO MORE”. It means turning away from the line and going in the opposite direction. It means completely breaking away from what you were doing. I see many friends that think, feel & speak repentance but they never take action. They believe that they can continue doing the same thing, running around with the same people but expect something different. My friends oil and water will never mix. If they brought you down before and have not changed themselves then they will bring you down again.
“Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.”(1 Corinthians 10:10)
Let God help you get through this day. There are many possible paths to travel between you getting up in the morning and you lying down at night, so stay alert to the many points of choice along the way by being continually aware of His Presence. You will get through this day one way or the other. One way is to moan and groan, stumbling along with shuffling feet. This will get you to the end of the day eventually, but there is a better way. You can choose to walk with God along the path of Peace, leaning on Him as much as you need. There will still be difficulties along the way, but you can face them confidently in His strength. Thank Him for each problem you encounter, and watch to see how He transforms trials into blessings…
“To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” (Luke 1:79)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER for YOU.. Draw your line & change directions..
I hope you all have a TREMENDOUS day… Blessings & much love….D
