As Christian’s it is important that we follow God’s plan and not our own. If we follow our own plan we will end up going down the wrong path. Then we need to ask God to come and lead us out. If we don’t we will go keep going down the wrong path. God can help us get out of anything. We just have to cry out to him and he will save us.
Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. Psalm 199:105 (NIV)
God word the bible is a lamp to our feet, and a light to our path. If we want to follow God then we need to read the bible. If we don’t we won’t be able to see where we are going and go down the wrong path. If we read the bible and follow God then we will walk to in the light of God. But if we don’t we will live in the darkness of the evil one.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to by my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. Mathew 16:24-26 (NIV)
So if we want to follow God, we must deny ourselves and take up our cross and follow Jesus. We will have to suffer like Jesus suffered, denying ourselves to follow him. It will be hard, but it will be all worth it in the end. Don’t just give God part of your life but all of it.
