There are 62 points in the U.S. where three states meet. If you are not careful you can get confused and make a wrong turn. You may end up in a state you don't intend to be in.
So it is in our spiritual journey. We can find ourselves on the cusp of going different directions. There is God's way, our way and satan's way. We must make a choice and determine which direction we will to go.
Joshua stated, "But if it doesn't please you to worship the Lord, choose for yourself today which you will worship...as for me and my family, we will worship the Lord." (Joshua 24:15). Joshua made a determination - he made a choice - he and his family were going to serve and worship the Lord.
Elijah challenged Israel and the prophets of Baal. "Then Elijah approached all the people and said, 'How long will you waver between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him. But if Baal, follow him.' But the people didn't answer him a word" (1 Kings 18:21) Elijah threw down the gauntlet and challenged them. Read 1 Kings 18. Its an exciting passage of Scripture. Elijah prayed down fire from heaven! God proved Himself and many turned to Him and followed the one true God. They came to a crossroads and made a decision to follow God.
Jesus, Himself, addressed the issue we are talking about. He said, "No one can serve two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money." (Matthew 6:24). Again, a decision must be made. We cannot choose more than one. Here it is a matter of priorities. If we choose to serve God we know He will meet our needs.
We all must make decisions as to what we will do in regards to serving God. We must decide which way we will go. Will God be central in our lives or will we go another direction. This is the most important choice you will ever make. This decision has eternal consequences.
Don't let the waters get muddied. Don't get confused regarding which way to go. God is not in confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33).
Some say they have difficulty choosing the right road. Pray about it. Seek God. If you are a believer the Holy Spirit will lead you and guide you to the path you should follow (John 16:13).
As a Jesus follower we need not be timid. Seek God's direction. Make up your mind that you are going to choose Jesus. In doing so you choose life - abundant life here and eternal life in heaven (John 10:10).
Until next time...enjoy the journey!
