Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go. Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea. Your descendants also would have been like the sand, And the offspring of your body like the grains of sand; His name would not have been cut off Nor destroyed from before Me.” Isaiah 48:17‭-‬19 NKJV

We cannot live the Christian life without the Holy Spirit’s guidance and empowering. Through the Holy Spirit, God leads, tends, feeds, protects, and nurtures us. In short, He provides everything necessary for our life and living.

Unfortunately, as much as God desires to lead us into abundant life, most time many of God’s children have steadfastly refused to follow Him. We would rather lead ourselves back into Egypt than follow God into the Promised Land.

No matter how long or how rough the divine way may appear, it remains your surest direction to greater fulfillment with lasting blessings here on earth and hereafter in eternity.

There is no other way in life that ensures safety, peace, security, abundant fruitfulness, and intimacy with God other than Jesus Christ. To follow Jesus therefore requires your willingness to deny yourself, take up your cross daily and follow Him in absolute obedience without questioning His will.

This is the only way that provides a sure path to God’s blessing. Through faith with patience, you can navigate through till the end. May the Lord help you this day not to depart from God’s way. Good morning, do have a fulfilling week
