Follow The Road!

Published on

October 4, 2021

Welcome again to October and the beginning of the last quarter of 2021! If you have been reading the Push Buttons Devotional with us weekly, today is a great day to raise a hallelujah chant to God for his faithfulness over you and yours.

Thank you, Lord, for your faithfulness, Hallelujah!

As the year comes to an end, we are running on the assurance according to Haggai 2:9 MSG that the year is going to end up far better than it started out, a glorious beginning but an even more glorious finish. On this basis, people across the globe have geared into the reflective zone where they are critically evaluating how the year has turned out; reviewing their goals and to-dos for the year — and setting new targets for a glorious ending. Goal-setting and Road-mapping are great and highly recommended for the rest of the year, but wait a minute, do you know the road that leads to 2022?

Imagine this; a friend walked through an unchartered path with ‘Google map’ directing his path, he covered quite a distance and after covering 50km he said to himself ‘‘I know this pathway now, I have come this far now, let me play a game. I will turn off the Google Map app, blindfold myself, turn off to walk the rest of the road till I get to my destination’’. Hilarious isn’t it? The least the friend could have done was ‘follow who know road’

The case described is the situation for many, thrived all through the three-quarters of 2021 on the account of the Word of God. On the account of mastery from the past, they are trying to perfect the last quarter of the year in their human effort. Gal. 3:3 emphasizes how this is a foolish move.

There will always be a way that seems right but end in destruction. Rather than play smart, why not just Follow The Road! John 14:6 introduces us to the Way, a person — Jesus is The Road, The Truth and The Life (CODE RTL).

I still have many things to tell you, but you can’t handle them now. But when the Friend comes, the Spirit of the Truth, he will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is. He won’t draw attention to himself, but will make sense out of what is about to happen and, indeed, out of all that I have done and said. He will honor me; he will take from me and deliver it to you. Everything the Father has is also mine. That is why I’ve said, ‘He takes from me and delivers to you. — John 16: 14

With the Holy Spirit vitally connected to Jesus, we are forever assured of having the best life guide we can ever have to navigate our life’s journey. He knows the Way and can handhold us and guide into the life pleasing paths of life when we relinquish our control to Him

A glorious 2021 is a promise God wants to keep to us, but the fulfilment in our lives have terms and conditions to follow:

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. — Proverbs 3:5–6

Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. — Proverbs 16:3

He further said;

I will instruct you & teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you — Psalms 32:8.

The secret code to experiencing a glorious ending is hidden in following the Way as the Holy Spirit leads us in the path of life through his truth to enjoy the abundance has he reserved for us. Secrets, answers, breakthroughs, global recognitions (Name it) are unlocked when you follow the road.

Following the Way is simple — Meditate on His Word & Obey it!

King Uzziah cracked the ‘Follow the Way’ (FLW) code in his time and see what happened to him… 2 Chronicles 26:5 Uzziah followed God in the time of Zechariah’s life. Zechariah taught Uzziah how to respect and obey God. When Uzziah was obeying the Lord, God gave him success.

The tensile strength of the Word of God is stronger than anything. Refuse to crumble under self-inflicted and social pressures to end 2021 with smashed goals — in your strength. Instead, use the FLW Code and experience success.

You can make Psalms 25:4 your daily prayers; Direct me, Yahweh, throughout the rest of this year so I can experience your plans for my life. Reveal the life paths that are pleasing to you.

As we continue the rest of the year, make a commitment to Choose the Way of the Lord, Obey His Truth & Walk in His Light. Refuse to trust & run in your strength, follow the Way!

2021 is going to end up far better than it started. A more glorious ending even as we follow The Way. Congratulations Friend!
