This is the way, walk in it
👉This passage comes from a promise to the people of Judah (The southern kingdom of the nation of Israel).
💕God knew the tendency of the heart of the Children of Israel.
💕He knows the tendency of our hearts, too!
💕In both, there is a leaning towards, wandering away from Him.
👉In this very passage, Judah is looking for help from Egypt and their armies and horses.
👉Even when we are prone to wander, God has grace for us.
👉He says whenever you turn to the right or the left….
👉It’s like GOD says listen; I know you are going to be tempted, fooled, or frustrated into going the wrong way.
👉But, even in that instance I have grace for you. You ear will hear. I will speak. says Our Loving God!
I. A PRECISE INSTRUCTION – This is the way
👉 The text says, “This is the way.”
👉 It doesn’t say this is a way.
👉* There is a way. *
👉 There is one way to God not many.
📖John 14:6 “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
📖Acts 4:12 “There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people, and we must be saved by it.”
A) The way of faith
🔖The way that God is asking us to walk in is trust.
🔖When we are faced with decisions that seek to make us go right or left we must trust what God has said.
🔖 Daniel refused to pray to anyone other than God!
🔖God’s precise instructions call us to trust Him even when it’s tough.
🔖*Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego trusted God! *
They trusted God no matter the result.
To them, He wasn’t only God, if He gave them good stuff.
B) The way of love
🔅When our heart begins to beat in rhythm with the commands of God, we run after them.
It is no longer a burden to:
📍Love our enemies,
📍Be our brother’s keepers,
📍Forgive those that hate us.
🔅We can serve with a passion and energy, that can’t be extinguished if we are walking in this way.
C) The way of prayer
🖍When we turn towards our Heavenly Guide and listen, we are walking in the way of prayer.
🖍 We must learn to listen to the Voice behind us.
🖍A person that never responds to the voice that says, “this is the way,” will never find the straight and narrow.
🖍*Prayer was never meant to be only us talking! *
🖍*Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me and I will show you great and marvelous things which you don’t know. *
🖍God wants to guide us into the unknown where Jesus is.
🖍 But it is up to us to call to Him.
II. A personal invitation
📌 This is the way, you walk in it!
📌There is a call that echoes still from the lips of Jesus Christ, I am the way! You follow me.
📌 We must choose to receive the salvation He offers.
