Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." Matthew 7:13-14
Wouldn't it be pleasing if the roads leading to destruction were labeled, perhaps one might state, "hey, you do not desire this one it merely leads to heartache and uncertainty, turn around take the one to the left" or maybe " Satan dwells here, you want to seek the road to the right." The signs are present possibly not that direct however if we open our eyes and listen to the cries of the Lord we will hear him calling and guiding us to the road that is narrow. The Lord desires us to follow him, even when we believe the road we are choosing is the absolute best, remember he knows the outcome. When we feel that tugging saying not yet this is not entirely what I have designed for you, listen and follow the path to the narrow road. Sometimes sin can feel so right, but the ways of the Lord are so much more magnificent.
Prayer: Lord, the road to you truly is so narrow, guide me in your ways help me always to choose you, to walk the path that you have chosen for me. Help me to see clearly in those times when it feels right but is not.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
