“And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left” (Is 30:21)
The flesh is restless. We get easily bored on walking the straight and narrow path. Things attract us to deviate, just for the fun of it. On the right, there is the pull of secular entertainment, the music of second hand cymbals and plastic trumpets. On the left is the attraction of legalistic religion…just tell me what to do and I will be happy…the choir sings and the congregation applauds…going home un-changed, that is what I want…
For a long time we think that there is nothing new under the sun. Then the Holy Spirit comes. He is always new and fresh. He comes in His own special way, and corrects our thinking. He points our attention towards Jesus, and for the first time we love with the love of God. My eyes open…it is a spiritual miracle… The vision becomes clear, the path sure and the true worship ignites in my soul. Especially when I am tempted to turn to the right or to the left, to the world and to empty religion, I need to hear the voice of God. He is faithful in His leading.
God’s voice is like no other. When the devil speaks, other demons talk, and there is confusion. But when God speaks, all creation stands still, in quiet respect and honor. God’s voice discourages me to go astray, to walk too fast or too slow. I learn to be lead by His Spirit for I am God’s child. I learn to reject other voices, other strange paths that lead astray, to sorrow and frustration. I learn to adjust my moods to His Mood. Both my ears hear in the same time, the same word. I joyfully make progress. Even when it seems slow, it is God’s speed and I have peace.
“I am grateful Father for Your loving voice directing my path. Because we are together in this journey, I will never worry if the walk seems slow, long, boring or lonely. Our sweet fellowship is all I desire. Thank You for the restrain to go away from Your truth. As I walk before You, one day down the road I will become perfect, for this is Your wonderful promise to me. Slowly I see that the world has lost its magnetic power over me for in Your light all things become visible, for what they really are. I so appreciate You, Father….I love You, Jesus…I love You Spirit…in Jesus name, amen”
