In Isaiah 35: 8-10 the scripture talks about a great road that will go through a once deserted land and it will be named the "Highway of Holiness"
Doesn't that sound like a highway that we all want to travel?
It goes on to say that evil minded people will never get to travel on it ...it will only be used for those who walk in God's ways and fools will never walk there.
This verse gives me a check in my spirit and I want God to show me if there's any foolishness in my life, if there's anything that He needs to remove in me so that I might walk on this great highway following Him and His divine plan steeped in abundant favor and His divine annointing for my life.
It is always good to check ourselves and to ask God to reveal to us anything that might be grieving the Holy Spirit.
Then we can ask for His forgiveness, we can repent and try to live according to God's will.
God knows we are not perfect. He made us...but He also knows the desires of our hearts.
We want our hearts always to be pure and right and good in Him. Let us aim our hearts in the right direction.. Let us keep our eyes steadfast and always looking forward straight ahead on to Him..He is the light ..He is our road to salvation.
Lord we ask that you would program our steps on your highway of holiness that we would be surrounded by a mighty Hedge of protection, covered in the blood of Jesus and surrounded continuously by your ministering angels. Let your heavenly warriors highlight the way and keep us focused on You and this mighty road that leads to the abundance of all mercy, grace, forgiveness, love and pure, sweet joy.
This highway is only found by following God.. He is making a way for His people to walk in His ways ...It says in Eph 5:1 We are to be "imitators of God"... We are to try to live so closely to God that we become like Him.. That others will see Him is us.
we are redeemed through the blood of Jesus and only the redeemed will get to travel this highway!
Thank you that on this road we will be protected from wicked travelers and all evil, You are preparing the way Lord for us to travel home. Walk with us Father.. For You don't just point the way but You are beside us as we take every faith filled step
We praise your name
You are deserving of all glory in Jesus name
8 And a main road will go through that once deserted land. It will be named the Highway of Holiness. Evil-hearted people will never travel on it. It will be only for those who walk in God's ways; fools will never walk there. 9 Lions will not lurk along its course, and there will be no other dangers. Only the redeemed will follow it. 10 Those who have been ransomed by the LORD will return to Jerusalem, singing songs of everlasting joy. Sorrow and mourning will disappear, and they will be overcome with joy and gladness.
Eph 4:29-31 ‘Let no unwholesome word proceed out of your mouth, but only such a word that is good for edification according to the need at the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
1 Thess 5:16-21 ‘Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully, holding fast to that which is good.’
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
