Father’s Wide Path

Melissa—Basically, we can miss the mark easily because all of the grooming, training, guidance, experience and cultivation it takes to fulfill the will of God in our lifetime is nowhere in the type of religious and cultural idealisms that form a picture of destiny according to our current understanding of Who God is. We have no way of knowing the intricacies God works in to establish His Kingdom on this earth through us. Our minds can’t comprehend that kind of detail. That kind of detail takes the entirety of our existence to manifest. Here’s the other thing, because Father is so intricate it is frustratingly contradictory to live in constant fear of falling off of His path. If He is that intricate, how in the world can we fall off His path that easily? An intricate God makes a wide path, and He knows our struggles with human nature. He’s not afraid so we shouldn’t be. He, of course, provides a way back, IF that’s even what is going on! You, I, we may simply be right in the middle of a transition of a lifetime, but we are listening to the ignorant voice of idealism saying, “you messed up”. But I offer this instruction from the Bible: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)
