There are only two roads before us, and we must pick one. But be careful of the choice that you make, one path leads to everlasting life and the other to eternal damnation.
You need to know that when you choose the path to God and righteousness that this is no easy way. There are going to be many obstacles that will be, placed in your way. The Devil will find it easy to decorate your life with poverty, anger, betrayal, destitution, jealousy and hatred.
Choosing to live in the light of the Almighty God is not so that you can have all that you desire in this life, but so that you may inherit the kingdom of God for eternity.
The Bible tells us that In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.[John 14:2]. Jesus is preparing eternity for those who are willing to follow the teachings of God, even though we face extreme difficulty in our lives. Clinging to God throughout all adversities make the enemy weak.
Children of God should know that the road that leads to the Devil may sometimes seem to be, paved with gold. But for you to get the gold, you have to display, envy, malice, lust, jealousy, and greed. These are the tools that the Adversary uses to keep you blinded from the light of God.
In pursuit of Earthly things, we forget to be our brother’s keeper. We allow our want to overcome us and, then we do just about everything that is against the teachings of God to achieve wealth, fame, notoriety and some even sell their souls to the Devil.
Today we are praying to the living God to help us to choose the right path, and although it may be rough and rugged, we know that He is there to guide over ever obstacles that are in our way. God will protect you from the claws of the Devil, and you shall inherit eternity, something the Devil cannot take away from any of us once we choose to serve God.
