Enter Through The Strait Gate Unto The Narrow Path

Enter Through The Strait Gate Unto the Narrow Path

Note: God is the comforter, and comfort is not man-made; that is why what men see as comfort is not necessarily the most comfortable for God.

What did I mean by that assertion? Comforting is not man-made; in other words, man will not find ease in anyone else except in the Comforter Himself.

This explains why what men and women of God often see as comfort is not always comfortable, except that they have adopted, adapted, and aligned themselves in whatever situation they are passing through at the expense of genuine Comfort for the mere outcome of Isaac seed sowing feeble result.

God is calling His people, for those who care to listen and take heed, come out of the crooked places, and crooked ways, and enter through the narrow gate.

Place your intentions on the straight & narrow path. God has never called you into crooked paths, but rather, you aligned and adapted unto it.

It is an unfamiliar path to The Almighty God, and since you’ve adapted to it, it has become familiar to you too.

God’s promise in Isaiah 45:2 (KJV)

“I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: He is willing, ready to go before you, be with you, and take you through, but you must decide and enter through the narrow gate. He will break barriers and obstructions along your way. That is His Promise to you!

God’s promise in Isaiah 42:16 (KJV)

16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

“But the narrow path is uncomfortable.”

That is a religious myth not true. God is balanced; if He brings you to it, He brings you through it. He is aware that the path is narrow, and that path is ONLY Known to Him.

Please be informed that I do not imply that entering through the narrow gate unto the narrow path is smooth and easy; it isn’t!

But it is the easiest, smoothest, and most rewarding path you will ever take.

Guess What? You will surely find comfort in God. He will comfort you!

Narrow Vs. Crooked Path

A narrow path leads to eternal life; going through this path, though it is unfamiliar or readily adaptable to flesh, you will find comfort. It is evenly balanced, and though there will be barriers and obstructions, God promises to make you overcome them. The gate to the narrow path is strait (narrow), meaning your journey is personal; you may be on the same road through the same gate with someone else, yet you both WALK differently. Change is constant for growth, and you cannot remain the same! This way leads to life, but sadly, only a few find it.

God’s word in Mattew 7:14

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.

Crooked way, crooked path, or crooked things lead to destruction; going through this path, though familiar or adaptable to the flesh, you will find no comfort, and it is unevenly balanced. There will also be barriers and obstructions; the gate is wide, accommodating many at a time; a wide gate denotes come as you are, remain as you are. No need for change! The way is broad, leading to destruction; sadly, many choose this path.

God’s word in Mattew 7:13 (KJV)

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in there at:

People of God, the choice is yours; do not replace God’s comfort by adapting or aligning yourself with the crooked. If you have decided to enter through the narrow gate unto the narrow path, please say this short but important prayer: Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner; I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness. I believe that your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin. You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9, that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.

Right now, I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul; with my heart, I believe God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment, I accept Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour, and according to His Word, I am now saved.

Thank you, Jesus, for your unlimited grace, which has saved me from my sins. I thank you, Jesus, that your grace never leads to license but always leads to repentance. Therefore, Lord Jesus, transform my life so I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not myself.

Thank you, Jesus, for saving me and giving me eternal life. Amen.
