TEXT: MATTHEW 7:13-14
(13) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
(14) Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
KEY VERSE: MATTHEW 7:14
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
My child, there will be times when you will not see the immediate way ahead. You may be filled with panic, wanting so much to avoid what could be a disastrous step. Remember that you do not always need to see the road ahead. It is sufficient, for the moment, to see Me! When the time is right for a choice to be made, you will know and I will assist you through it. Until that time, be very sure that merely keeping very close to Me is a guarantee that you are moving in the right direction, even though there are questions and doubts raging in your mind. When you cannot see clearly the next step, there is a good reason for My withholding that awareness. It becomes a time of trust…Trust, very often, I will simply cause to happen that which I want for you!
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Do not feel the awful responsibility of choosing your path, when that is not necessary for the moment. Just hide in Me and know that you will soon see clearly. Until then, you are precisely where I want you to be. My child, you know that My Spirit will never mislead you. Never be anxious about the consequences of actions taken after waiting upon Me. I have spoken much to you about My companionship upon life's journey. It will make all the difference, especially in those sudden crises. Learn to see Me accompanying and supporting you.
My light is always around you on the road. Sometimes, the effort of another step will seem impossible. Sometimes, you will shrink from what lies ahead of you. At those times, make it a rule to affirm that I AM there with you. Look into the glorious sufficiency of My presence. Allow your Companion (JESUS) to lift you forward, not letting go of you for one instant. The realization of your spiritual hope would, of course, be impossible without Me. With Me, you can feel the exhilaration of rising above all obstacles and all the earth's disappointments. Come and journey with Me along the way in peace.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Allow only Jesus to lead you in the journey to eternity.
