Lining Up the Lights

MATTHEW 7:21--“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.”

A ship approached a narrow harbor. “How can you know where and when to turn?” asked a passenger. “I run parallel to the land, and then I turn when the ship is aligned with those three lights on the shore,” the captain answered.

The heart knows direction when it’s lined up with God’s three lights. The first is the beacon of the Bible, which gives the broad revelation of God’s will. Second is the light shining through doors that open and close. This illuminates our trust in God to open the right opportunities and close the wrong portals. The third light is the witness of the Holy Spirit. If He lives in your heart, you will have inner direction, which should be confirmed by external witness.

Get the Word, the doors, and the Spirit’s inner witness lined up and your heart will know where and when to turn.

Spiritual Heart Focus

Determine to make no decisions until all the lights are lined up.

Physical Heart Focus

Food fallacy: What you eat is the key determinant of your health. It’s vital to monitor your daily calorie intake, but also exercise and try to maintain your ideal weight.
