Psalm 23: 3 (NKJV) “He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake.”
In my morning prayer, I could feel the reality of His presence gripping me again as a faithful God and good Father. God never leaves us alone in this life journey. He is a sovereign who always accompanies, protects and strengthens us in every moment or situation that we have to face. Further in my prayer, I saw a pure white, very smooth and level path is created, like a path that passed in the middle of an unkempt and dirty large park, full of roots and dry leaves (which I believe depicts life in this world). The path that I am walking on is very straight and there are stairways to go up, then flat for a few steps away, then there are stairs to go up again, then return flat, and so on.
I seemed to get an understanding that this is called “pathway in the spirit”, the path that God set for His children to walk through life on earth.
1. In God’s way, there always are His involvement, DIRECTION and Guidance we need to live in the truth.
God leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. As a faithful God and good Father, He will always work to send His voice: the Word we need to live an accurate life. So that we know and able to live the truth in daily life. Sometimes the voice of God comes as a REPRIMAND because we have turned away from His path. He will correct our way of thinking, the attitude of our hearts, and lifestyle which are still wrong and bring us back to walk in the path of truth.
If our lives are accurate, the Voice will come to BUILD a life that is in harmony with the Word, enlarge our spiritual man’s capacity, make the Spirit of Christ within us grow bigger and more powerful! we will be taken to continuously empty ourselves from all forms of ego, love the world and love of money so that only Christ alone lives within us (Galatians 2:20).
2. In God’s way, there always are a position and mentality to grow as a representative of God’s Child
In God’s way, there is the EXAMPLE of Christ which Jesus showed as a true Son of God (the living standard as the Son of God). By following His example, we know how to represent ourselves as children of God. #ILoveGod
