Scripture reading: Isaiah 30:21

There is a peculiar thought that the Lord spoke to me. The thought is that God is seeing us right now, and He is seeing our “beginning,” and He is seeing our “now,” and He is seeing our “end.” Somehow I suspect that God does not have a set destiny which says that it is your destiny to end up as so and so, that you must end badly or you must end here or there, but that He gives us the ability to change it. THE THING IS IN YOUR HANDS.

God is looking at your end, and He knows if you continue on one road, you will end here, and if you change your course, you will end there. Thus He gives you every encouragement to go a certain way in order to influence your destiny for good. The concept is very simple. Think of yourself being up in an airplane, looking down. You see a man running along the road, and there is a fork in the road. If he turns one way, you see that he is going to end up in the swamp. If he turns the other way, you know that he is going to end up right. So you send a message down to him and you say, “Keep on the straight way. Do not turn.” You do not really tell him the whole detail of the thing, but because you are seeing where he is going to end, you say, “Don’t you turn. Keep on the straight way.” The man says, “All right. I am going to keep on the straight way.”

This is how it is when God looks down on us. But here comes a devil and he whispers in your ears. He says, “Some beautiful truths are on this road. You can enjoy this road, and after all, you can bless God with the money that you make on this road.” He says, “Go this way,” and you are tempted to make the turn.

But God sends another message to you and says, “Remember, I said to you to go that way. Go straight!” There is this battle then that is continuing in the mind; and you make the wrong turn. Nevertheless, God has a way for you to get back on the right road if you will only listen, and He says, “When you reach to the next turn, turn left.” But when you look at that turn, you say, “Oh my!” It is rocky. It is dreadful. It is terrible. It is problematic. You say, “God says to turn this way, but I think I had better go for the next turn.” However, there is an end to it. There is a time when you cannot turn back—a time when you have gone too far; and this is what we do not want. We would like to see everybody turn right.

And that is my hope that you, my readers, will make the right decision and turn to the right path which leads to the fullness of your calling in Christ Jesus.
