How Many Ways?
I want time. I’ll work this out myself. Don’t give me your advice or help; I have to do this alone!
The Bible provides two choices to follow. Narrow is the road to life, and few find it. The second course is a wide road that leads to destruction. The majority favors the broader way because it’s comfortable with more attractions and the promise of false freedom.
In 1969, Frank Sinatra recorded a song that was very popular. Its premise has prevailed to this day. In actuality, the theme in the song was born before creation, in the heart of Lucifer. It assumes there’s another way than either the narrow or wide thoroughfares; making a theoretical way called “My Way.” “My way” dismisses God’s way, and the devil’s, electing to go the way I choose. There exists a controversy between good and evil. Following my course is not a third choice. There’s one side or the other. We may not want only two options because our humanness desires the control for ourselves.
I don’t perceive the future, nor can I know it, but God does. He is working to liberate us from Satan’s plot to steal, destroy and kill. Determining to make choices for yourself leads straight into the enemy’s ambush.
The majority choose their own path, thinking it allows more freedom when it’s taking liberty plus their future from them. “My way” separates us from our source of guidance and strength. That’s why we need a Savior that directs our path.
Make me know Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.
He leads the humble in justice, And He teaches the humble His way.
That Your way may be known on the earth, Your salvation among all nations.
