“Follow the Path of God”

“Follow the Path of God”


One can tell the condition of a

person’s heart by looking at his countenance (his facial appearance). We all

know when people are happy; we can tell by the sparkle in their eyes, their

smile and their cheerful countenance. When they are old, happy people have

“smile wrinkles” instead of those caused by frowning. Facial expressions

reveal a lot about a person. Even children will speak up when they observe an

unkind face, and they might say, “That is a mean man!”


Sorrow in the heart can also be read on

the face. When we are troubled, we’ve probably heard someone ask us what was

wrong. We all experience things in life that break our hearts. If sorrow of

heart continues indefinitely, it can break our spirits. How can we recover from

heartbreak? We must give the situation to the Lord and ask Him to heal our

grief. If we have lost a loved one, we can enjoy the good memories, but we must

not allow the enemy to torment us with prolonged grief. God can fill the

emptiness from the loss of a mate, a child, a friend, or anything else. Jesus

died, not only to give us eternal life, but abundant life now. Since He Himself

bore all of our iniquities, pains, sicknesses, griefs, and sorrows, we do not

have to bear them. We can receive our healing and deliverance by faith.


“Surely he hath borne our griefs,

and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and

afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our

iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we

are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his

own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah



Those who have godly understanding

always want to learn more about God and His ways. We can ask Him for knowledge

to overcome every trial we face. God is bigger than our grief, pain, and any

problem that we will ever face. He is always there to help us to overcome

anything the enemy is trying to do. He will rescue us in our time of need.

However, we must not be like the fool who feeds on his own folly, continually

airing his troubles and blaming others (including God) for his circumstances.

People like this feed on self-pity. When sorrow overwhelms us, we need to

remember the little phrase, “this too, shall pass.” God is eternal

and He has good plans for our future.
