Proverbs 14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. Before we go the “way” that we think we should, there is a will to go the way that we believe is right for us. Sometimes we judge the way that we should go by what something or someone looks like, just like Lot did and we think, that’s the way that I’m supposed to go, not knowing that we are entering Sodom and Gomorrah (which almost caused Lot’s death).
The problem is we trust in what we see, just like Eve did when she looked at the tree and began to allow her will to be turned toward it and then act on that will, which did lead to spiritual death. The solution to getting where God’s will would have us to go is to walk by faith and not by our limited sight. Understand that it doesn’t always look like we think it should, but God will confirm His will and He will lead you just like He did the children of Israel, Abraham and Moses.
