“I don’t want to – “ I started to think. The Holy Spirit immediately stopped me in my tracks.
“It doesn’t matter what you want. You will do what is right,” He spoke to my heart.
Enough said. I was on the wrong track. The wrong path. I needed to get on the right path. His.
When the Lord warns us, corrects us, chastens us, leads us to repentance, when He makes clear in one way or another we are already turned away from Him, or are about to turn away from Him, we need to humble ourselves, turn to Him, and walk down the path He sets before us. His path.
We will not walk this path of righteousness alone. When we believe in and follow Jesus, when we walk in God’s ways, when we live in obedience to Him, when we choose what is right in His eyes no matter the cost to our fleshly desires that don’t line up with His will, WE WALK DOWN THE PATH WITH HIM!
