MY Way Keeps Getting Harder!

 

There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death,  Proverbs 14:12.  It has a wide gate, and a broad way, and leads to destruction, and many people go that way,  Matthew 7:13.

So If you are searching for My path, and you find one that’s popular and it’s jam packed with people saying, come on, this road is so much fun, that’s not it.  “My path is very narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed that leads away to life, and few are those who find it,”  Matthew 7:14.

When you find My path for your life, a strange peace will envelope you, for a while there may be no one else on it, because only a few find it.  It will sometimes be a very lonely road, but there will be that peace that you won’t understand, and as long as you have that peace you will know you are on the right path,  Colossians 3:15.

There will be times you cannot see down the path at all and there will nothing but peace to go by, but that’s all you need.  The road gets narrower when the finances are not at the gate, but keep going and all the things you need will be provided,  Philippians 4:19.

There will be times that you will need to shut out every voice around you, even the most spiritual, in order to hear My still small voice.  There will be very very narrow stretches where, “I will give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet I will be your teacher will not hide Myself any more, but your eyes will constantly behold Me.  21 And your ears will hear a word behind you, saying, This is the way, walk in it, when you turn to the right hand and when you turn to the left I will be there,”  Isaiah 30:20-21.

You can be sure these very, very narrow paths are deep inside enemy territory and you will be used to bring great harm to the kingdom of darkness,  Luke 6:23.

MY Way Keeps Getting Harder! — 3 Comments

  1. About the reference to Isaiah 30:20-21
    I will share what I – right now when I read it- received IN THE spirit about the next verse:

    “And ye have defiled the covering of Thy graven images of silver, And the ephod of thy molten image of gold, Thou scatterest them as a sickening thing, `Go out,` thou sayest to it Isa.30:22

    We are the ‘graven images of silver and gold’ and when we in perfect obedience ( not breaking His commandments, no matter circumstances) and in totally dependence on the Lord, walk this narrow path, we will be delivered from all flesh (self-will) and soulish, worldly, minds and we will be found walking only in the Spirit and therefore our spirit will so to say cast out our flesh (self-will)!

    A most glorious way!

    “Ye shall have a song, as in the night, WHEN A HOLY SOLEMNITY IS KEPT, and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe TO COME IN TO THE MOUTHAIN OF THE LORD , to the mighty One of Israel Isaiah 30:29

    If one is to success in this is depending on if the believer can let go from every dependence in money and the worlds ‘safety system’ and only trust in the Lord and in His Word about that He will feed us supernaturally:

    “for a root of all the evils is the love of money, which certain longing for did go astray from the faith, and themselves did pierce through with many sorrows 1Tom.6:10

  2. “these very, very narrow paths are deep inside enemy territory”

    Thank You Lord for this third confirmation about the pressure on the narrow path after that (spiritual) attack the enemy carried out today.

    “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ,” 2 Cornthians 1:3-5.

    Thank You Jim for all that you share!

  3. This is truly revelatory!! Thankyou for the excellent advice – I really liked “these very, very narrow paths are deep inside enemy territory and you will be used to bring great harm to the kingdom of darkness”.

    The message blessed me in its entirety as these reveal very deep truths. Amen. Hallelujah and thankyou Lord for this word of truth. God bless.
