Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your path straight Proverb 3:5-6
Are you on the right path? Are there any areas of your life that aren’t on track? Are you trusting God with ALL your heart; not leaning on your own understanding?
If you took a road trip from Texas to California, but took the wrong highway and ended in Montana, it wouldn’t get you to California simply to say you really want to go to California. It wouldn’t even be enough to confess to someone that you made a wrong turn. You’d have to do more than get off the wrong road. You would have to get on the right road. You would need some sort of navigation system.
In the same way, repentance is more than turning from something. It goes beyond confession to turning TO Christ and staying on course with Him.
Being on path with Christ involves trusting in Him to navigate you thru the details of every day living. Be careful not to follow another’s course. God created you with a unique plan. Trust God on the path He’s set for you.
Invest time getting to know God. Be a student of the Word. Know His character and His ways. Take time with Him. Talk with Him throughout the day. Recognize His voice. Take steps of faith as He leads you on the good path.
