Jesus said I am the truth, the way, and the life.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word (Christ) and the Word was God himself. He was present originally with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him, and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.” (John 1:1-3)
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” (Psalm 119:105)
God’s Word shows which path to take so you will stay on the straight and narrow road that leads to eternal life. The lamp upon your feet helps to lead and guide you where you are stepping so you can avoid the traps that the devil has set for you to walk in and destroy you. These traps can be in the form of deception and distractions that keep you from fulfilling your God-given destiny; your God-given purpose. For example, you have a gift of creativity that is expressed through hair designing, but you attempt to draw and paint. However, your drawing and painting is not very good. You begin to receive negative comments and become frustrated and eventually give up. This is the result of you not using the gift(s) God gave you.
Once you start using your God-given gift(s) – teaching, encouraging, writing, singing, dancing, creative designing, etc. then you will experience joy and fulfillment, and God will view you as being faithful.
“His master said to him, Well done, you upright (honorable, admirable) and faithful servant! You have been faithful and trustworthy over a little; I will put you in charge of much . . .” (Matthew 25:23)
“He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much . . .” (Luke 16:10)
God will also promote you by opening more opportunities for you to use your God-given gift(s) to help more people.
“A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.” (Proverbs 18:16)
