YOUR WAY OR GOD'S WAY




Are you more concerned with going your own way and doing your own thing or trying to make sure things you do please the Lord or are God's way? 

Isaiah 55:8-9(KJV) says ' For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways.' What are His ways do you suppose? Perhaps things that are good, pure, perfect,kind, uplifting,wholesome, encouraging, good, and awe inspiring. 

To know God is to know His ways. Matthew 7:21-23(NKJV) says '“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’' His way is to not make it a practice and habit to sin. 

To know God's ways you have to get into the word of God. You have to commit to daily time with Him, praying and reading the Bible. The more you saturate yourself with the things of Christ the more deeply you will know and understand God.

PRAYER: My hearts  desire is to know you more and to do things pleasing unto you. It is also to run the race set before me looking to you to guide me. Help me Lord on this journey. In Jesus' name. Amen.

  1. When we live for the Lord, we give our ways to Him and He does with them what He wants. He makes us into the person He wants us to be.
