In Deuteronomy 30:11-16 Moses sums up the law and His entire ministry as leader with three seemingly simple points, Love God, walk in His ways and keep His commands. These three callings are not separate but are very connected. It is very difficult to consider walking in the ways or paths that God sets us on if we do not love Him and trust Him. Even more it is impossible to be obedient to God’s voice and Word if we have refused the way that He has made for us. We like to think that the destination is the important part, that it doesn’t matter how we get there as long as we get there. The truth is, I don’t know that it is possible to reach God’s intended destination unless we are willing to travel down His chosen path. An angel came and told Elijah “the journey is too great for you.” That wasn’t to discourage him but rather to encourage him to receive the tools that God had prepared for the journey. Our paths were chosen by God before there was time, in His love He has also prepared us to travel them. We must yield to His love, trust His Word and travel along the path that He has chosen, there truly is no other “way” to get to the destination that He has intended.
