“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” ~Proverbs 14:12
Through our fallen nature we are prone to always want to take the easy way. The path of least resistance. And why not? If it looks easy to us it should be easy, right? Wrong! Anyone who is real with themselves will recognize the fact that what seems easy to us in the beginning usually ends up being much more difficult in the long run. Why? Because we want to conduct our lives in our timing and by our standards, but then get upset and confused when we don’t get God’s results. We want the easy way.
We like things quick, easy, and exactly our way. God does not always operate under those circumstances. Sometimes we have to go His way even when it seems so hard. These are the times where your faith is truly tested. Do you really believe that the Lords mind is on a level much higher than yours? If so, then stop trying to lead yourself. The way that seems easy will end up in failure because God is not in it. Trust God and take the “hard” way today. It’s easier than you think!
