Isaiah 35:8 ” A highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness.”

The Lord will never call you without first going before you to prepare the way. Case in point, His call to holiness, or sanctification here. This verse states that we have the path already in place for us to follow on that journey towards holiness…but most times we bristle at the thought of the long drawn out process. But God’s plan for your life is found embedded within that process. In Romans 6:19 Paul tells it like it is, “I put this in human terms because you are weak in your natural selves. Just as you used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to holiness.” The only way to break old habits is to introduce new ones. And the only way to strengthen those new habits is to practice them until you are proficient. That’s why the “Way to Holiness” is a marathon not a sprint…a journey not a quick jaunt, and a life-long process not a one time application.
