The Path of the Righteous

God’s will for our lives is likened to a well worn path which our heavenly Father has marked out for us. As we live in obedience to God’s Word and to the Holy Spirit, we stay on the path and fulfill God’s plan for our lives.

Notice some important qualities about the Lord’s path:

1. He has gone before us, so the path is sure and safe.

Righteousness will go before Him, And shall make His footsteps our pathway.
Psalm 85:13

You enlarged my path under me, So my feet did not slip.
Psalm 18:36

2. He is not only “the Way”; His path is also “the Life.” Following His path leads to maximum life.

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 16:11

You crown the year with Your goodness, And Your paths drip with abundance.
(Psalm 65:11)

In the way of righteousness is life, And in its pathway there is no death.
Proverbs 12:28

3. God’s path is time- tested (not trendy) and clearly marked (not obscure or mystical).

Thus says the LORD: “Stand in the ways and see, And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. (Jeremiah 6:16)

Commit today to walking in the path of the Lord. One day you’ll look back and realize His path has produced a life filled with satisfaction, joy, fulfillment and kingdom impact!
