KNOWING THE WAY OF GOD
Anytime you miss the way of God, your heart has definitely gone astray.
“But,” God says, “I was very angry with them, for their hearts were always looking somewhere else instead of up to me, and they never found the paths I wanted them to follow.” Hebrew 3:10 (LB)
The way of God is not in prophecy, though prophecy can attest. The way of God is in your heart, and prophecy may witness to what is already in your heart.
“But faith’s way of getting right with God says, “Don’t say in your heart, ‘Who will go up to heaven?’ (to bring Christ down to earth). And don’t say, ‘Who will go down to the place of the dead?’ (to bring Christ back to life again).” In fact, it says, “The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” Romans 10:6-8 (NLT)
Therefore, “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.” Proverbs 4:23 (NLT)
Earnestly with all sincerity say this prayer; “Search me, O God, and know my heart; test my thoughts. Point out anything you find in me that makes you sad, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.” Psalms 139:23-24 (LB)
“This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you to understand, and it is not beyond your reach. It is not kept in heaven, so distant that you must ask, ‘Who will go up to heaven and bring it down so we can hear it and obey?’ It is not kept beyond the sea, so far away that you must ask, ‘Who will cross the sea to bring it to us so we can hear it and obey?’ No, the message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart so that you can obey it.” Deuteronomy 30:11-14 (NLT)
