GOD'S WAY ISN'T ALWAYS EASY
We make a terrible error when we think that God makes life easy just because we're in his will or that the easy way in God's way. We don't follow Jesus or God's will for our lives because it's the easy thing to do we do it because it's the right thing to do.
When we follow God's way, it's the best way, but it may be the difficult way.
Moses chose a path that God gave him criticism and ungratefulness his whole ministry.
Daniel chose a path that took him to the Lion's den.
The three Hebrew men chose a pass that took them into the fiery furnace.
Stephen chose a path that led to Martyrdom.
Paul chose a path that led to imprisonment and execution.
Christ chose a path that led to the cross.
All these hose paths that were God's plan for them-but their paths we're not easy. God doesn't promise us an easy trip, but he does promise to be with us as we follow it! Need a verse for that? How about Isaiah 43:2. “when thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”
