We can get discouraged at times because it looks like what we truly desire will never come, but there is encouragement in the word of God. His wisdom far exceeds anything we could possibly dream. So don’t look to your left or to your right! You might get mad. You might get envious. You might get sad. You might get turned around. You will definitely get distracted because whatever God has for you is not on the broad path. It’s on the straight and narrow path.

There are some that have veered off and gotten temporary satisfaction. They may have even received what you desired most, but if it wasn’t received in righteousness, there is a price to pay. You don’t want to want to pay that price. God is not a liar. You do reap what you sow, and sowing in unrighteousness brings unrighteous consequences even if reconciliation with God allows that person the grace to bear it.

God gives us His word as an encouragement to keep our minds stayed upon Him. Looking to the left and to the right or following the broad path brings confusion. It’s not where you were meant to be. Stay focused. Stay clean. Stay with your eyes and heart fixed on Him.

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.                            (Matthew 7:13-14)
