THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Main Text: Psalm 23:3 – He restores my soul: he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Proverbs 12:28 – In the way of righteousness there is life; along that path is immortality.
The paths of righteousness are those paths which are plain, straight and safe which the sheep of the Lord’s pasture are neither hurt, nor wearied, nor in danger of wandering. David was recounting the goodness of the Lord in his life as he said…”He leads me through the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake”. God leads us through the paths of righteousness so that people who hear of His goodness in our lives will give glory to Him. The paths of righteousness are the paths which the Lord has designed for those who are in right standing with Him. Are you in right standing with God? The Bible tells us that “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:10) which means that if you have believed and confessed the Lordship of Jesus in your life then you are in right standing with God and these paths of righteousness is designed for you.
As you have become his child, by his word and his providence he will direct you to the right ways of truth and holiness, and by his Spirit he will incline and enable you to choose those ways, and to continue to walk therein; for his name’s sake. God does have planned paths for us to follow. God has a planned path for you in your career because He is the one who “works all things after the counsel of His will” (Ephesians 1:11) which means that He can certainly guide you along a particular path of righteousness to the job which is ideal for your present and future spiritual condition, growth and usefulness in His service.
MAY THE HOLY SPIRIT ORDER YOUR STEPS TOWARDS THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
