Matthew 7:13-14 states “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
I have been reminded recently that nothing comes easy and sometimes includes trials, pain and tears. To follow the path that Matthew describes in the New Testament requires sacrifice, patience and FAITH. The path cannot be taken blindly, Christ will lead the way and to follow his footprints is necessary. Satan would love nothing more than to redirect that path and inflict his will on our lives. As we learn to follow, the time will come when we begin to walk beside Him. Never give up if it feels like you are yelling trying to get His attention from behind and certainly make sure not to get in front of Him, you will miss when He makes a turn.
