Saved From My Own Way
An important result of salvation is a life going a different way, a life changed from going an individual*s own sinful way to a life going God*s righteous way. The Bible calls that change repentance.2 Peter 3:9: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Our Own Way:Proverbs 14:12: There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Isaiah 53:6: All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Jeremiah 10:23: O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
God*s Way:Psalms 37:23: The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
Psalms 119:105: Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.1 King 19:11-12: And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD. And, behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the LORD; but the LORD was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the LORD was not in the earthquake: 12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the LORD was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.
Isaiah 30:21: And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.Romans 6:4: Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Psalms 139:23-24: Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
When the still small voice is God*s, it will always be in accord with the Bible. If you are going your own way instead of God*s, you are either not saved or you are wasting your life and His blessings.
