14329298961_da63af3bfc_b[1]Paul McCartney’s hit song the long and winding road; “tells us It’s a sad song, because it’s  about the unattainable; the door you never quite reach. A road that you never quite get to the end of.” But my friends, Christ tells us the road to life eternal is attainable and we can reach it when we submit ourselves completely to Christ will, because at that point “the heart is [then]united with His heart, [our] will is merged into His will, [our] mind becomes one with His mind, [and our] thoughts are brought into captivity to Him; we live His life.

This is what it means to be clothed with the garment of His righteousness. Then as the Lord looks upon us He sees, not the fig-leaf garment, not the nakedness and deformity of sin, but His own robe of righteousness, which is perfect obedience to the law of Jehovah.” (E.G. White, High Spiritual State Attainable)

And that law of love and grace will keep us from falling, [and it also present us] faultless before the presence promises-of-God-1-6of his glory with exceeding joy. Jude 24 (KJV) My friends, wouldn’t it be amazing if we could travel without interruption on this Journey God has placed us on.

Because there are times when it seems we will never reach that place God is trying to take us. But, our failures are not from the lack of what Christ has done for us and continues to do through His Spirit. Remember the sacrifice made at Calvary where God gave his only Begotten Son to save you and I.

That sacrifice, “clearly shows and proves God’s love in that while we were still sinners, He gave His only Begotten Son to die for us.” But there are times when we ignore Calvary and wander blindly in a totally opposite direction from God’s plan.

But our God does not forsake us He tells us in Isaiah 42:16 (KJV) “I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.”

My friends, our life is laid out before God, He see’s every valley created by unwise choices that we have made throughout our life. But as long as our focus stays on the Journey Christ tells us “I am the light of the world. Whoever caminofollows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12 (KJV)

Light has always been a symbol of the presence of God who we should seek daily from His word and Spirit. Remember “in the beginning “God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness” Gen 1:3 (KJV) and throughout His word He leads His children with that same light.

But also throughout His word his Children along with His anointed kings and patriarchs and prophets also at times got off course. But like our Bible heroes who stayed focused on God and the journey, in the midst of the confusion of what we are witnessing in our world today, we must also stay focused on where God is leading as we “forsake all others,” which allows the light of God’s presence to lead us into “His path of righteousness for His name sake” which then leads us into His kingdom.
