The Way Less Traveled
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6 Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
There is a way to completeness. That way is on a path that leads to and through Jesus. The above scripture shows a person’s heart that has learned to totally trust in Jesus and his way. Our understanding of life itself is skewed at best, and hopeless at worst. We tend to follow our own direction and ask God to come along when all along the way God is inviting us to come along with Him. This invitation is very hard to turn down, but scary because it involves giving up ourselves to the will of God. It is difficult to just “give in” and give all our life over to God, but it must be done to experience that completeness.
When you do give your life over to His will and way you quickly discover the way is much different than you had planned. In fact, it is much different than anyone has planned. It is God’s plan. You know, God, the maker of the universe, and the creator of all things? He really wants our whole life, our whole heart, and our whole trust. When we are able to finally give in the result is a life that is foundational with Christ as our cornerstone and the Holy Spirit as our guide and comforter. The way God sends us on is The Way Less Traveled. Most believers only get a glimpse of this way and only realize a little of where this way takes them, but it did take them somewhere. Where? COMPLETENESS.
So think about taking the way less traveled and try to realize what your life would look like with God directing your every step. Deep thoughts, but very worthwhile thoughts. Time to go on that path less traveled and look for God along the way. He is there all the time.
