You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” – Hebrews 1:9 NIV
The Lord designates certain people to be leaders. Jesus was the quintessential leader. He lived by example. He made incredible sacrifices for those who choose to follow Him.
The straight and narrow path is not easy. We try to do good but at times it is like a steep, upward climb that is difficult and challenging along the way.
The Lord strengthens us and gives us courage to follow the path that He has given us. We can trust Him with every detail of our lives, and He will guide our decisions as we cultivate a closer walk with Him. Amen.
