Walk In His Way
way of the Lord is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the
workers of iniquity. Prov. 10:29.
from the beginning we had walked in the counsel of God, thousands more would
have been converted to the present truth. But many have made crooked paths
for their feet. My brethren, make straight paths, lest the lame be turned
out of the way. Let no one follow a crooked path that some one else has made,
for thus you would not only go astray yourself, but would make this crooked
path plainer for some one else to follow. Determine that as for yourself,
you will walk in the path of obedience. Know for a certainty that you are
standing under the broad shield of Omnipotence. Realize that the characteristics
of Jehovah must be revealed in your life, and that in you a work must be accomplished
that will mold your character after the divine similitude. Yield yourself
to the guidance of Him who is the Head over all.
We are doing our work for the judgment. Let us be learners of Jesus. We need
His guidance every moment. At every step we should inquire, “Is this
the way of the Lord?” not, “Is this the way of the man who is
over me?” We are to be concerned only as to whether we are walking in
the way of the Lord.
God will honor and uphold every true-hearted, earnest soul who is seeking
to walk before Him in the perfection of Christ’s grace. He will never
leave nor forsake one humble, trembling soul. Shall we believe that He will
work in our hearts? that if we allow Him to do so, He will make us pure and
holy, by His rich grace qualifying us to be laborers together with Him? Can
we with keen, sanctified perception appreciate the strength of His promises,
and appropriate them, not because we are worthy, but because by living faith
we claim the righteousness of Christ?
There is nothing so great and powerful as God’s love for those who are
