Take it to the Lord...

This morning when I was doing my normal quiet time with God, he pointed out one specific verse to me;

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12

Many of us believe we 'might' be doing the 'right' thing in our own eyes. But hello, have we ever taken the thought and really sought out to God, and really asked him what he thinks about this and that? Have we asked him in prayer and searched him and his will? Or do we 99% of the time just think it's fine and to just leave God out of the picture and go ahead with the decision? My friends, many of us think it's the right way, but when it really comes down to the point, we NEED to take every way and every thing to the Lord in prayer. Just like that song 'What A Friend We Have In Jesus'

What a Friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

There may be times where we think it's a good idea, but the end to that can lead to harm or even worse, death! The next time there comes a situation in which you are unsure, remember to take it to the Lord in prayer and not to choose what you want. Our eyes deceive us, and will lead us to destruction. We are to live for Christ, and to have him in our daily walk!

Wow! That stanza completely emphasized your words! I like what you said, "my normal quiet time with God." It should be normal for every Christian to spend time with God daily!
Thanks for the crucial reminder on praying! It reminds me to pray with out ceasing right now!!!

Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Eph. 6:18
If only I could emphasize always!
Keep on that narrow road! Love your long winded commenter sister in Christ :)
