He has his ways!
Have you ever heard anyone say that about someone? I have. Actually, people say that frequently. And when they say it, they are almost always referring to someone’s “ways” that are not admirable.
In many households you can sometimes here the wife or children make that comment when referring to the father or grandfather of the family. And its humorous.
But do you know that God has “His ways”?
That’s right! The Bible says in Psalm 128 “How happy is everyone who walks in His ways!”
You can be certain that God has His ways, and His ways are completely admirable. God’s ways are good and right! God’s ways are for us to know and follow. God’s ways are the way that we can live for Him and bring glory and honor to Him.
In Proverbs 8:32 God says “Blessed are those who keep my ways.”
Let me ask you 2 questions:
- Are you happy?
- Do you walk in God’s ways?
God wants us to be happy, and that happiness can only be found in Him. It makes sense. The unhappy person is the person who is distant from God or running from God.
Would you consider the fact that your walking in God’s ways and your happiness are linked?
Often we are frustrated or discouraged by someone who is set in his ways. But with God this is not the case. God does not frustrate us or discourage us. Not at all. We frustrate and discourage ourselves. And why is that? Because we have abandoned God’s ways. His ways are right! His ways are good for us.
Back during the summer while out of town for a wedding, we stayed in the home of this godly elderly couple. They were so sweet and serving. Above their kitchen sink hung a little plaque that said “If you are feeling distant from God, Guess who moved?”
Remember Jesus’ words in John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and they follow me.”
Let us ask ourselves what ways are we going? Whose ways are we following? And lets be blessed! Blessed are those who keep God’s ways.
