Move Toward the Light
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.Matthew 7:13-14
Stay on the narrow road toward eternal life, and in your imagination see the light of God at the end of the narrow road. Each day see yourself a little closer to the light and notice the light is brighter. This will help us to move forward, while Satan is trying to move us backwards.
Moving toward the light is continuous spiritual growth, and spiritual growth brings us closer to Christ and to Heaven. For all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God (Romans 8:14). We travel down the narrow road guided by the Spirit, fulfilling the Lord’s plan for our life. The best life we can live on the earth comes from traveling down the narrow road toward the light of God in Heaven, and we are blessed to be guided by Christ.
We have to be on our guard, because Satan is always seeking to bring the darkness of the broad road to us. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, (Ephesians 3:20) Walking on the narrow road, we focus on the light of God and at the end of the road, then we will have the power of God within us to crush Satan’s attacks. All those traveling the narrow road are protected by God, and we walk down the narrow road into Heaven in total victory.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18) We always give thanks to God because it shows we fully trust Him and the divine guidance by Christ. We thank God in advance, because we know he is with us and will guide us through anything Satan puts in our path. There is nothing that will keep us off the narrow road to Heaven, if we keep moving toward the light of God.
As we move down the narrow road, we have the desire to help people on the broad road, walking around in darkness with no direction, because they have been deceived by Satan. We need to bring the light of God to them, so they can see way to the narrow road of life.
Today focus on walking toward the light, and after this day realize you are one day closer to the light of God in Heaven. Live each day seeking to bring the light to free someone from the darkness of the broad road.
Let’s Pray: Lord thank you for enabling me to see the light at the end of the narrow road. Guide me through the Spirit to continue toward the light, and help me to free people from the darkness of the broad road. In Jesus name, Amen.
