Entering the gate

Great Morning to all that is blessed today, because if you are reading this then you are blessed. As I sit here studying God's most awesome word and how to apply it to my life, I wondered am I entering into the gate that I am suppose to be? Am I walking the path that God wants me to be? We all question and doubt where we are going and if we are doing what we think we heard God say. And I turned in my Bible to Numbers 6:24-26. Here is what it says: 24- The Lord bless you and keep you; 25- The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you 26- The Lord lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace." That was God's way of saying you are right where I need you to be My child, My beloved. But then I had this yearning in my heart that although I am right where I am suppose to be there was some among my circle that had the false feeling of being right where they were suppose to be and heading straight into destruction. See when I have feelings of doubt, I don't go to my circle, I got to my Father and listen for His advice. So I turned my Bible to Matthew 7. These words are in red so I know I need to pay attention because Jesus is speaking and it is the truth. I take all the Bible to be truth but the words in red is something I need to really look at because it is usually a warning. verse 13- "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14- Because narrow is the gate and DIFFICULT is the way which leads to life and there are FEW who find it" That got my attention as never before. I have friends and family and even me that think we are living for Christ but Satan has just made the walk look like we are living for Christ. It says the road that leads to destruction is broad and many go down that path and the way to eternal life is difficult. I would think one would have to be diligently searching for that path to find it. When God took things away from me and called me to something different, I had my doubts. But when I finally let it go and started really studying God's Word and starting with the Old Testament for my foundation, I soon realized that I was a half-baked Christian. I was walking the broad way. I am now trying to stay on the difficult and narrow path. I can honestly tell you staying on that path is more than difficult some days. I realized that God held me accountable for so much more than I was taught growing up. I am thankful where God has landed me today and I would not take nothing for my journey now. I will not turn back. So today asked God if you are on the path that He has designed just for you and you alone. Make sure you are walking the narrow path and not the broad one. And if you are on the path that God has you and it seems that you are going no where fast, go back and read Numbers 6:24-26. Let Him be your guide. Have a blessed day and rise up children of God.
