The Wrong Way

So a few weeks ago a realtor knocked on our door and asked if he could put this sign in the corner of our yard and as you can see we allowed him to stick it in our lawn. Then yesterday I looked out our window and saw that someone had turned it so that it was pointing the wrong direction.

Often Satan and his helpers are found doing this very thing and they make us think that we will find what we are looking for down that road that they point us to but as many of us have discovered the hard way the "house" or the destination we had hoped for is not there. Where we thought we'd find joy and fulfillment we find frustration, dissapointment, confusion, guilt, and heart-ache.

We must be in tune to the Spirit so that we might recognize when Satan is trying to change our course and quickly point our arrows toward the correct Way.

John 14
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.
5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus Christ is the Way and if we follow Him we will never be lost and our journey and our final destination will bring great joy, fulfillment, and peace.
