For the gate is narrow and the road is hard that leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:14
What is the answer to the question, how do you stay on the narrow path in such an evil and dark world? You will face trouble, endure many trials, difficulties, distress and, affliction. It will be hard to remain focused on that narrow path ahead of you and remain strong in the Lord’s promise that he will return and take us to Heaven. Do not lose hope, it will happen soon! I focus on seeing His face shining at the end of that path that is so long and difficult, but I know He is there and will embrace me and walk me into heaven to see my loved ones and my mansion because I have not given up and turned to the broad and open path that seems so much easier. I am not a saint nor would I ever claim to be one. I have endured many trials and, darkness. But I will always be true to the Lord and trust his promises to us.
Yes, we go through so much in life and it’s expected for us to remain faithful and strong during our time here. God does not lie and his promise will never be broken. We will be tempted to give up, to walk away from Him, and to find comfort elsewhere due to a lack of faith. Do not surrender to or conform to the world and satan’s ways, that is the broad open path that will lead you straight into death and destruction.
The narrow gate will be difficult but it is the way that leads to life, and there are few who find it. The broad way leads to destruction (hell). Follow the Lord Jesus and He will never ever leave you.
“I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
Let my soul be at rest again, for the Lord has been good to me. He has saved me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling. And so I walk in the Lord’s presence as I live here on earth! Psalm 116:7-9
