Liberty!

Look at Isaiah 30:21,

Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it," Whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.

The idea this verse is conveying is that if you get off-course with God, He is going to let you know you are making a wrong decision or a wrong turn.

The Living Bible puts it this way,  And if you leave God's paths and go astray, you will hear a voice behind you say, "Not this way.  Walk here."

What I have come to realize is that you and I have far greater liberty within the parameters of God's will than I previously thought.

It is important that you stay open and keep things laid out before God.  But I have discovered, as I said, that we have far greater liberty than I previously thought.  Let me give you an example.

Not long ago, my wife and I were very seriously considering selling our house and moving.  Real estate had gone up so much that the equity in our house had more than doubled since we bought it.  So we got to thinking that it might be a good time for us to move.

I did not have a word from God about moving.  But I just know God well enough to know that I could make a decision like that.  If I was getting into an area where we were going to make a mistake, God would let me know!

Some people get so uptight about everything.  But as long as you stay open to God, you can make those kinds of decisions, because He will be there to direct you if indeed you are making a mistake.

That is true liberty!
