Three Word Wednesday: Follow His Path

I'm linking this up over at 152 Insights to My Soul.

From Kristin: #ThreeWordWednesday is simple, really. I know we're all busy with life and kids and jobs and parents and friends and church and whatever else it is that occupies our time. Some weeks I'm not sure what my post will be about, but knowing people will show up here on Wednesdays is good motivation to write something.#ThreeWordWednesday is a chance to pause and hear God. Sum up what you're hearing in three words. Those three words are enough. But stories are good too.

Follow His Path

God has set a certain path before each of us. He has called each of us in a different way but the path leads to him. If we submit to his will and follow His path we will reap such great rewards. 

So why do we find it so easy to stray from this path? To try and forge our own way as if we know better?

I feel myself being called to do something big. Something daring. But I also hear a voice of "nope." A voice saying, "You aren't cut out for that." A little sprinkle of, "Nobody cares."  Then topped off with, "It would be too much work." 

God doesn't set a path before us that he doesn't intend us to walk down. His path is good. His ways are perfect. The path may not always make sense to us but it does to Him.

And enough with the "I'm not good enough" mantra. He doesn't choose perfect and well equipped people. Moses was "slow of speech and tongue (Exodus 4:10)" but God still called him and used him. Moses followed the path that God set before him.

It can take great faith to follow God's path, especially when it requires us to stretch out of our comfort zone. I pray that we would each have the faith we need to take the path one step at a time, to trust God's perfect ways, and follow the path he has set before us. 

Is God calling you to follow Him? On what path is He leading you? Are you ready to faithfully follow?
