The Right Path to Travel

Are you a Christian but still confused about what God wants you to do?

This is what he says through King David in Psalm 19:8 – “The commandments of the Lord are right, bringing joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are clear, giving insight to life.” NLT

All through the Bible, God’s commandments are written down for us to study and meditate and get worked into our hearts and minds so that we apply them. The most important commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and the second most important is to love your neighbor as yourself. The Spirit of God helps us do these things, so that we know they are RIGHT, and when we do them, WE HAVE JOY IN OUR HEARTS. When that joy wells up, you can just stop right there and praise the Lord that you are obeying him.

Then there are individual circumstances in life that require specific direction from God so we don’t get out of his will into joylessness. Then we need to get quiet and ask him to command us. He promises that his commands are clear, giving insight to life.

Glory to God! Never stumble around or hide behind walls again, wondering. God makes everything bright so we can walk upright. He directs our paths.
