” The path of the righteous is like the morning sun,
shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness;
they do not know what makes them stumble.”
A Righteous path is a road that is morally right, just, and commendable.
A wicked path is a road that is devious, scheming, and darkness is all around it.
On the Journey of life, a path stands before us, and we must make the right choice. The RIGHTEOUS path, and the path of the wicked. The path of the Righteous; is a narrow path, that leads to life, while the path of the wicked is a broad way, that leads to destruction, and death.
A man that is in right standing with God, will carefully consider his steps, and not make quick decisions. First, and foremost, he will council with the Holy Spirit, and seek answers from above. He knows his ways are not God’s ways, and his thoughts are not God’s thoughts. When decision arrives on the scene, he will council with the LORD, and pray about the situation ahead. This man has a good relationship with the Lord, and like a child, he will cling to his father, for directions.There is no confusion, just clear direction, guidance, and focus on the road ahead. The closer we are to God, the brighter and more satisfying this path of life becomes.
The wicked man however is lead by pride, arrogance is his delight, and jealousy is his company. He seeks to kill, steal and destroy, like his father the devil. He schemes, and plots, and looks for a way to trap the righteous. He lies, and accuses day and night; like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. The path of wickedness seems right to him, but he does not understand the consequences of his actions. Like the blind, he is lead by the blind, he does not know what awaits him, he isn’t even concerned about that, he stumbles in the darkness, with no one to rescue him. He is like a chaff that blows away, prospering one minute, deteriorating away the next, with the wind of trouble, destruction is HIS name.
Let us NOT be like the wicked, but seek a Righteous PATH that leads to eternal Glory, and PROMISES of GOD.
Lord, lead me on the path of Righteousness for your name sake. Help me eradicate wickedness, and devious ways, from my path, and stay on the narrow path of life. Shine upon my path, like morning sun, day in, and day out. Incline my ears to your voice, to follow you in all of my ways, and hear your call, in the midst of thousands. Help me to pay attention to the nudges you make in my life, and be led by your spirit, in unity, and one accord. Bring me clear focus, and provide a clear understanding in the way that I should take, in Jesus name, amen.
