Proverbs 4:18 The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day (NIV).
One of the ways to know that you are on the path that is God’s will for you is that it keeps getting brighter and brighter with each step you take. At first, things might seem blurry and vague but as you continue to take steps of faith on the path set before you and in obedience to God, it gets brighter and brighter. The secret is to keep taking steps of faith. If you keep taking steps of faith and the path keeps getting darker and darker, and you are not getting clarity then you need to seek God for direction.
As the path keeps getting brighter and brighter, you see better with clarity. This means that you also get to see obstacles more clearly and this does not mean that you are on the wrong path; with a door of opportunity comes opposition. The key is not in all the monsters and obstacles you see around you, the key is in whether it gets brighter or darker. You should not be fumbling in the dark.
The path that is God’s will keep getting brighter in terms of clarity and peace despite all the obstacles that you encounter. Brighter and brighter does not necessarily mean easier and easier.
God bless you!
