This is the Way

When recently I had a big decision to make it was almost as if I actually heard God saying to me. ‘This is the way, walk in it.’ This feeling was so strong and when I acted on it promptly, it did indeed prove to be the right way. But it is so easy to stop listening to God’s voice. Life seems to be conspiring against us. In fact it is because the voice of the devil gets in the way. He doesn’t want us to obey God so he tries to make it difficult for us.

One way of keeping in touch with God is by reading His word. In fact it was the words from the Bible which directed me in this occasion. Isaiah 30:21 ‘Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hears a voice behind you, saying, This is the way, walk in it.’ It is amazing how often we read the right words for just the right occasion. No, it isn’t amazing, it’s God directed.

Another way of keeping in touch with God is by talking to Him and listening to Him. As we are told, ‘more things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of.’ The hymn writer James Montgomery says, ‘Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire, uttered or unexpressed.’ And finally Christian fellowship can be a help to us. When we have Christian fellowship, we also have fellowship with God. No wonder fellow Christians thoughts and ideas are of benefit to us. Such communion is a way of walking with Him and pleasing Him.
