The choice is yours, whether you walk the highway or travel the low path. Both lead to a destination, but is that destination your desired end?
You have a say in your future
You had your way in salvation; I gave you room to grow. You’ll have your day in judgment, should you not judge yourself by what you know.
“But if we judged ourselves truly, we should not be judged. But when we are judged by the Lord, we are chastened so that we may not be condemned along with the world.” I Corinthians 11:31-32
Clarity of vision comes from walking in My light; not ahead of it, nor behind, but My light is cast upon you when you walk with Me.
“For with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light do we see light.” Psalms 36:9
So, if you choose to walk with Me, I choose the highway.
It is the right way for those who see. The diligent choose the more difficult route, for it is easy to walk without a thought; stepping on those you find along the way. ‘What does it matter?’ For tomorrow’s another day.’…
It does matter to Me!
If you choose to walk free, I’ll see to it that you are not snared with cares. But you must be diligent unto Me. It may seem a battle, this higher way. But, in time, wisdom gives you greater vision to see.
- Work on one thing–determine to love.
- Then take on the battle with your tongue.
- Judge no other, for I would have you to judge yourself.
Handle these three and more will be in store. But for now, work on this–it is key; for the greater walk is to love your neighbor as yourself. There is no high way, no right way, no better way than this–
“And a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the Holy Way; the unclean shall not pass over it, and fools shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast come up on it; they shall not be found there, but the redeemed shall walk there. And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.” Isaiah 35:8-10
“The way of the righteous is level; thou dost make smooth the path of the righteous. In the path of thy judgments, O Lord, we wait for thee; thy memorial name is the desire of our soul. My soul yearns for thee in the night, my spirit within me earnestly seeks thee. For when thy judgments are in the earth, the inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.” Isaiah 26:7-9
“Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor.” Romans 12:9-10
“Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love of the brethren, a tender heart and a humble mind. Do not return evil for evil or reviling for reviling; but on the contrary bless, for to this you have been called, that you may obtain a blessing. For ‘He that would love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking guile; let him turn away from evil and do right; let him seek peace and pursue it. For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer. But the face of the Lord is against those that do evil.’” I Peter 3:8-12
“For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love be servants of one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” Galatians 5:13-14
