Dailies ~ In His Word
August 6, 2019
And make straight steps with your feet: that no one, halting, may go out of the way; but rather be healed. Follow peace with all men, and holiness: without which no man shall see God. Looking diligently, lest any man be wanting to the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up do hinder, and by it many be defiled. Heb 12 13-15

Make the path clear!  The Lord told me this morning this quick instruction from such an amazing group of scriptures, I read the first few lines and that is what I heard, so I read a few different examples of the text. In the Easy Reader version it says to ‘make the way clear’.
In most of them it talks about doing this by getting rid of the sin that tries to taunt you to pull you into the life you used to desire to live, but God is tell you to make the way straight and clear the path so that He can speak. It is not about making it straight so you can see where you are going, though that alone would we worth it!  He says this then says do not ignore Him. (Hebrews 12:25)When speaks through someone else pay attention and know that if you try to ignore Him He will make it known to you that He knows and He will chastise you. God will not make it easy for you to continue sinning in ignoring His clear direction. Even if you ignore it God knows you heard…
Selah? Stop and think about what that means to you.

For me make the path clear can mean many things,  I get things in my life that clutter things up, a lot of it is because I do not know how to say “no” to people who ask of me to help them do things, or get them places, or what not. I have been told today that I must make the path clear for Hearing from Him.  I will ponder this today and continue this tomorrow! I know that when I hear from God I must respond, I could try to ignore it but His word says not to so that would be sin. I want to throw off all the sin that hinders or slows my walk down.  What will I throw off today? The clutter of ‘to do’s’ in my life.
That may mean we have to get rid of people in our lives that cause us stress, and clutter our lives with useless things to do that are not part of God’s plan for us but that we allow out of fear of offending someone.  What will you throw off today?

Heavenly Father, show us what to get rid of in our lives, help us to have a clear path and walk where You show us to walk with not temptations or distractions in Jesus’ name, that we may hear Your voice! In Jesus’ name, amen.
