THE NARROW PATH TO RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD - DAY 110
by Rev. Robert John Cericola, Carroll, OH - EUA
1 Samuel 17:20 (AMP) So David rose up early next morning, left the sheep with a keeper, took the provisions, and went, as Jesse had commanded him. And he came to the encampment as the host going forth to the battleground shouted the battle cry.
There are times when you may feel life on the Narrow Path has brought you to a lonely wilderness place where you are living amid sheep (people) that do not understand your pursuit of God is the most important thing in your life. They may point to the green grass or the clear running stream and tell you to be satisfied with the provisions God has given. They do not understand the importance of knowing God intimately, they are satisfied with the things of this world.
But there comes a day when they will have to face the Goliaths in their lives and because they do not know God, will shrink back in fear from the battle. Experience in the ways of the world and human strength cannot take you past what you consider insurmountable, but the wisdom and strength that comes from relationship with God has no bounds. For with God all things are possible.
It is not important that people understand you or your pursuit of God. What is important is that you stay on the Narrow Path and allow Holy Spirit to mold you inwardly into the image of God so that when Goliath appears to challenge you or your brethren you will be up to the task.
Stay on the path brethren God will complete that which He has started in your life. There are people that need Jesus and you to point the way to Him.
