The analogy that I gave earlier this week was that of a car and its alignment. If a car is in perfect alignment then it will travel in a straight line without someone turning the steering wheel. If a car is not in alignment then the car can be made to go straight with the steering wheel.
Both ways the car will travel in a straight line, but as I discussed on Monday, God is not concerned about the straightness of our path, but the internal alignment of our souls.
As I said:
God is concerned about inner transformation not outer formation.

So true, Nancy–wish I’d read this blog and received it 20 years ago! Thank you Holy Spirit for blessing us with this wonderful woman who Hears you–I learned this teaching the hard way, but many are learning it and (hopefully) receiving it without going down the hard road!!
I’ve done it both ways as you well know!!! So many hard roads and so many lessons learned.
