Walking a narrow path isn’t easy. It also comes with much obedience, sacrifice, discipline and commitment. When walking this path, it is important to stay focus and faithful even until the end. When you are walking on a narrow path don’t fall into any traps of deception by thinking you’re missing out on something. Allow God to keep you in perfect peace. Keep your thoughts on him. Don’t waste the years of your life by conforming. That’s time and energy that you can’t get back.
The lie that the enemy will try to display is that your missing out on the “fun” (the pleasures of sin). Please don’t believe the lie and the mindset that everyone’s doing it. That is deception. Don’t fall for the bait or trap. Guard your heart and affections. God’s protection is a blessing and it will save you from so much unnecessary trouble. Put on the full armor of God. He will preserve you. He will do whatever he can to protect his best. It’s an honor to be on God’s mind so much, that he’s not willing to allow you to go through that path of destruction. It will always appear as rejection, but it’s really protection so you can truly receive his best in any area of your life. Romans 8:25: says “But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it”. Always remember that the best is yet to come. ♥
Please don’t get weary and bow. Stay out of danger. Someone is counting on you to be different. Hebrews 11:25 mentions that the pleasures of sin are for a season. Stay true to who he called you to be. Despite the pressures of reality, your obedience, devotion, sacrifice and commitment will pay off. The enemy will make a lie appear as the truth. You’re not missing out on anything that you “must” have. Allow God to build your patience so when you finally receive, your foundation will be stronger. Your time is coming 🙂

Everything Is not what it appears or seems. Do not fall into the trap of illusions. It’s going to take more than feelings and the idea of a situation in order to sustain through the tough times. If you make a life decision based on the artificial or idea, it will crumble a part. It’s so much more work, dedication, focus, and commitment than what it appears on the outside. The intensity and urgency of a situation will take much more than just the illusion of feelings and ideas. It will also take more than the desire. Use the eyes of the spirit and not the eyes of the natural. Some times God is protecting you, when you don’t get your way.
Find it not a strange thing when God does not give you what you want when you want it. Don’t follow the trend of what everyone is doing. Don’t allow what others are doing to cloud your judgement. This is your path. Trends eventually fades. You must remain faithful to who you are until the end. What’s for everyone may not be for you at the moment. God has a special plan your life. He always saves the best for last. Focus on his word and his voice. Not the other voices in the background nor illusions.
When God has place a special calling upon your life and when he has blessed you with the crown of favor, can you handle the opposition that will come with it? With every opportunity comes with opposition. There are challenges that comes with being chosen. Some people will do anything to tear you down. (Sometimes even the people closest to you, take Joseph for example) It is an indication that God has selected and hand-picked you as his own. It is an honor from God. Hate, envy, and bitterness are spiritual cancers that has the power destroy blessings. Are you strong enough to deal with the conflict and challenges of being hated for no reason? Are you able to brush off the dust of betrayal, rejection, lies and deceit? It takes the spirit, strength & wisdom of God to stand in the midst of the battle that’s not yours. Everything does not deserve your attention, time and energy. Do not give them any power. You are on another level. When the hand of God is upon your life, a response is not necessary. It will all be taken care of in due time. Real discipline is not giving into your feelings. Allow God to be your vindicator over ALL situations. He will show you what to do in the midst of pressure. Trust in him who will never fail or forsake you. Through trails and persecutions, he shall always be there even until the end of time.
Your hard work and devotion will not be wasted. Continue to strive for what you believe in. You shall have whatever you say. Speak it in existence for the power of life and death are in the tongue. Speak life over your dreams, plans, goals and inspirations. Remember God is not a man that shall lie. Neither has he forgotten about you. Don’t over calculate and analyze things, allow God to have full total control in directing your pathway. The road to righteousness is narrow, so is the road to success. Not too many people are willing to go through with the threat of failure and the pot holes in the road towards success. God timing is perfect. More precise than any man on this earth. Waiting is the most important part of the process. God will never put more on you than you can bear. Have you ever thought that maybe some things haven’t come to pass yet because you’re not ready. (Although we always think we are) We should appreciate these moments of waiting because it builds our strength, faith, and preparation. When the time comes for your season to arrive, you shall be ready. Whatever God has spoken, so shall it be. It shall come to pass.
