Each and every one of us will follow someone, however the person you follow will either lead you to fulfil your potential or will lead you to the wrong place.
Who are you following? A deaf-blind leader always lead someone into a ditch. Paul said,
"Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour." Ephesians 5:1-2
He reminds us of who to follow and that person is none other than God himself who’s to lead you until you encounter his purpose and will.
Following God will lead you to a new birth with Jesus, and life in the spirit. You never go wrong with his plan. But if you follow people they’ll lead you to all uncleanness; idolatry, covetousness and fornication. "For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope..."Romans 8:20.
"Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord." Ephesians 5:7-10
Suddenly your life changes when you start following God; you find your old self is gone and that you’re now become "light in the Lord: walking as children of light." That change doesn’t end there, but as you grow you’ll learn to walk away also from deceivers, and to not "fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them" Ephesians 5:1.
Paul says when you follow God, "See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil" Ephesians 5:15-16. Evil because false prophets want you to follow them instead of pointing you towards Christ.
Fools always look back, they always want to go back after their vomit. Fools are deceivers, the children of disobedience, but the warning is "Be not ye therefore partakers with them" Ephesians 5:7. Rather, prove what is acceptable unto the Lord.
"Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is" Ephesians 5:17. Your greatest calling is to know how to write wrong where possible.
The will of the Lord is that you know how to follow God, "as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us," Ephesians 5:1-2.
