2 Thessalonians 3:5- God Directs The Path Of All Believers

2 Thess

5 May the Lord direct your hearts to God’s love and Christ’s endurance. CSB

“May the Lord direct your hearts” All Christians are being led by the Holy Spirit based upon the truth of God’s Word. Through God’s guidance, the believer will not fall into deception so that he may be destroyed.

How does the Lord direct one’s heart? The answer is found in Proverbs 3:5-6 which says, “5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight.”

“God’s love” [The Spirit will direct you towards]: God’s love is a motivator to the believer, to remind him where God has saved him from, and his future redemption either by the rapture or in death, knowing that we will be in His presence forever. Even though we die, we shall live. 

“Christ’s endurance In John 16:33, it says, “33 I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world.”

Jesus Christ who lives in us has overcome the world’s temptations, afflictions, and many troubles. He is the one who empowers us to endure all that the world which is under Satan’s power hurls at us.
