MATTHEW 6:15_But if ye forgive not men their trespasses…
God’s path for life is freedom – you will never find a No Trespassing sign on God’s path. Feel free to roam, explore, and enjoy His path.
But God definitely places some No Trespassing signs. You will find them on the paths which lure from His path.
God empowered Joshua to lead His people into the Promised Land. In Joshua 1:7 (KJV), God says, “Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.” There is an obvious plan here. You will need strength and courage to stay on God’s path. Do not stray – at all.
Joshua was called to continue Abraham’s job. A new country for God’s people – designed by God, and for God. There were to be no other gods, no other laws, no other forms of worship – God’s only. To allow anything apart from God’s design was to stray.
When you set up a life designed by you and for you – you’ve strayed. You have decided straying a little to the right or left is not really a bad thing.
What becomes of God’s wanting to bless you wherever life takes you?
One True God, Thank You for Your path that causes me to be blessed. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ knows the path I should take—He will guide me!
