THE PATH OF LIFE
Hear my son, and daughters, and receive My sayings, and the years of your life will be many. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her for she is your life. Proverbs 4:10-13
There are many paths available to us, but only one that leads to eternal life, Jesus said, "Enter by the narrow gate, because wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction and there are many who go in by it." I started out on the wrong path and was almost destroyed until I found Jesus, or should I say He found me!
Today there are even more detours on the path of life trying to turn us away from our eternal destination. Without Holy Spirit GPS one can easily get lost and go down the wrong road. Jesus said that even the elect could be deceived. The other night I taught on Spiritual Warfare at a fellowship about three people who were blown off course by the enemy: Adam who was led to doubt God's command, Samson who was seduced by demons, and David who succumbed to lust and fell into sin with his neighbor's wife!
All three were strong men of God, but they were led on the path of the wicked! Because of Adam's sin we were all condemned to eternal death, Samson's sin cost him his life and David suffered grave consequences for his actions and all these were instructions for us, that we should not crave evil things!
Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of evil. Avoid it, do not travel on it, turn away from it and pass on. Proverbs 4:14,15
