When we cross into the eternal place I am quite sure we will find out we got a lot wrong regarding our deductions of how God thinks and His ways.
“Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable his judgments, and his paths beyond tracing out!” (Romans 11 v 33)
How often are we worshipping what we have deducted and reduced in size to our understanding, thanking God for the detailed strategic plan that we have understood. Compared to worshipping Him for who He is because we cannot understand what He has done. The song of Moses and the Lamb says:
“Great and marvellous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the nations” (Revelation 15 v 3)
Let’s keep to the ways of the Lord even if they are beyond understanding. Let’s keep to the ways of the Lord even when we are under severe trial and temptation. Let’s keep to the ways of the Lord even when we feel justified not to for the enemy of our soul does not only move with force and violence.
Be careful of gentle alluring words and the visuals of beauty set before you.
Watch out for the empty promises of no harm shall befall you, take it and see.
Be attentive to the friendliness and understanding of your situation.
For ways, steps, paths and roads are more important than we think. We are lulled into false security that these are not destinations but that is where we end up quicker than we could ever have imagined. Where do you not want to live? There is a way to get there.
Many have their eyes solely on the destination that they miss the importance of the journey.
Be careful who you have signed up to walk with.
Better to walk alone than with a manipulative deceitful friend.
Walk in just and true ways for hat God does is right every time.
