Thoughts to Live By
“..for as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:”
Proverbs 23:7

Stay on the Path of Blessings

“I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.” Proverbs 4:11,12

Suggested reading – Proverbs 4:11-16

The Lord always leads us in the right paths and does not desire to see us stumble or fall. But sometimes we may take a wrong turn and sadly end up on the dangerous evil path that can cause us to fall and even ruin a person’s life. The Lord tells us in verse 11, “I have taught thee in the way of wisdom;” He teaches us in this passage how to avoid the pitfalls of Satan and stay on the right path.

The following four things in this passage that will keep us off the wrong path.

  1. Live by His wisdom and not our thinking or planning. Vs. 11
  2. Take firm hold of instruction from God’s word. Vs. 15
  3. Stay away from the evil path and evil people that can cause one to fail and fall. Vs. 14
  4. Go out of your way to avoid that evil path, not pass by it, turn away and pass away.

Let us keep our eyes on Christ and stay on God’s path where all His blessings are.
