Rx, Anybody?

Realizing the need to be directed by the LORD, I prayed for Him to set out a path for me and He quickly and most compassionately reminded me He has already given me the promise that He will direct my way.  Not only has He promised to direct my way but He said it would be His absolute delight to do so.  See! says so right here!

Psalm 37: 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delighteth in his way.

via Psalm 37:22-24 KJ21 – for such as are blessed by Him shall – Bible Gateway.

So what’s the problem?

Me!

I was going to say I have the hard part – following. But actually that is not the truth. The truth is the hard part is DECIDING to follow. And it is not just a one time decision – pity! Because I like once and for all decisions that need no maintenance. However, I only know of ONE such decision: Salvation.  And you know the reason it’s a once and for all decision? Because I am not the one responsible for maintaining it — HE is! And HE has already promised HE will – no worry there!

But for all the steps from the Cross to Heaven? Well, that’s my DECISION and the ONLY safe and sane one to make is to FOLLOW. And you know what? Once I decide to follow a particular ordered step, following is a far, far, far easier path than not following.

Anybody know what I mean?

Anybody encouraged by this besides me?

Anybody out there need to take heart and make some decisions today to follow a prescribed order?
