Are You on the Path?

But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines more and more (clearer and brighter) until (it reaches its full strength and glory in) the perfect day (to be prepared.)

Proverbs 4:18

It is so easy to hit a season in our lives where everything seems out of whack! We don’t know what the next step will be in our lives, we’re confused, scared, and worried. So many people get thrown off track during these times and let the troubles of this world overwhelm them.

One of the greatest lessons I’ve learned is found in the verse above. The path of the righteous gets brighter and brighter and clearer and clearer. I’ve learned that as a Christian, God did not intend my life to be this bumpy ride where I’m constantly getting knocked around, constantly in fear, and never knowing what to expect. No, God said that He will direct my steps and make my path clear.

So what am I trying to say? If your path isn’t getting clearer and brighter… you’re not on the path! Jesus said that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. When we’re on the path it should be easy and you should have a peace about where you are!

One way I’ve learned to evaluate if I am on the path is by this standard:

If it’s good it’s God, if it’s bad, it’s me!

So let me ask you… Is your path getting brighter and brighter? Is your path getting clearer and clearer? Are you in a good place right now? If it’s not . . . you may need to look at your life and realize where you’ve missed it. You may even need to go back to the last thing God asked you to do and make sure you were obedient. If you weren’t, repent, and jump right back on the path!

God is so good!!! There really is no better feeling than knowing you’re on the path and knowing that as you continue in your journey with God that the path is only going to get brighter and better! I am pretty fired up about being on the path! Are you? God has some amazing things in store for you…. get ready!
