God’s ways always lead to life and goodness. It is always profitable to follow the leadings of the Holy Spirit. But if we choose to go the other way, and follow the way of the wicked, we will find ourselves in much turmoil. Where God is not involved, there can never be any good that comes out of it.
And we pray:
Dear God, in this world it can become very tempting to follow the ways that are contrary to Yours. But Lord, I choose to remain in Your path. May You keep me focused, Lord, in times I am tempted to sway. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

“Don’t focus on your adversaries. Focus on God’s possibilities.”
“True faith is keeping your eyes on God when the world around you is falling apart.”
“Instead of thinking about how hard the test is, we can instead focus on asking the Lord to enlarge our understanding.” Crystal McDowell
“The more you focus on yourself, the more distracted you will be from the proper path. The more you know Him and commune with Him, the more the Spirit will make you like Him. The more you are like Him, the better you will understand His utter sufficiency for all of life’s difficulties. And that is the only way to know real satisfaction.” John MacArthur
