There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. ~Proverbs 14:12
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way. ~Isaiah 53:6
Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins. ~James 4:17
There are many of us walking in a way which seems right but in many instances we have allowed our own feelings or the influence of others to lead us down the wrong path. We feel that our ideas and the way we live are right, or at least “okay” with God. But let’s examine our current path. Are we living mostly for ourselves? Do we value material possessions more than we should? Do we seek recognition, success, and power? Did we start on the right path only to stray away on a yellow brick road which leads to danger? Are we depending on our own wisdom, our own ideas, our own convenience, or our own preferences? Whether in our families, workplaces, church gatherings, or anywhere else, we can’t do what we want to do, when and how we want to do it, and expect good outcomes. It must line up with the Word of God or the end will lead to death and destruction. If we are on the path that pleases God, when trials and temptations come, we can lean on the promises of God and stand firm in our conviction that… “I know Whom I have believed, and am convinced that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him for that day.” ~ 2 Timothy 1:12b
Heavenly Father: You are the Holy and Majestic One, and I praise You today with all that is within me. You made a way for me that is right and leads to eternal life with You. Help me to know Your way and to stay on the right path each and every day. Guide me with Your Holy Spirit to make right and holy decisions that would honor You. When trials come may I remember Your promises that are true and powerful and guard my life from death and destruction. In Jesus Name, Amen.
There is a way that may seem right, but death comes in the end.
If God’s Word we do obey, then blessings He will send.
