As you try to see which road to go down in life, it can seem overwhelming to try and figure it out on your own. Some go to psychics, or tarot card readers, others try to follow a religious system, others do what feels right or good; but the pathway of life can be found, and be found laid our clearly in God’s Word, the Bible. God has preserved His council, His heart, His mind, and the directions for you right in the Scriptures. While there is a lot of uncertainty in life, at home, on the job, with your health, or with your family; what is predictable are the promises of God. God has promised a pathway for you to follow; and not only has He promised it, He’s provided a pathway for you and all of us to follow. God has given us a pathway to eternity and heaven through Jesus Christ. He’s given us a pathway to have a relationship with God, His Church, and His people. God has also given us clear pathways in the way we should walk daily in order to fulfill the purpose that God has for your life. One pathway that God has given us to take, is the path of prayer.
The Lord says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.” — Psalm 32:8 We have all experienced it before —The feeling of being confused or disconnected from God’s plan. However, God has carved out pathways for you to take in your relationship with Him. These paths are designed to connect you to a church family so that you can experience spiritual growth, and enjoy the blessing of serving others. Taking these paths are essential to both your spiritual growth and ability to serve God’s plans in your life. Pathways identifies the four pathways of church connection as explained in Acts 2:42: “All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals including the Lord’s Supper, and to prayer.”
