Ponder the Path

The Christian walk is a walk of faith. We know who we believe in and we are to know the promises in God's word.  There are other ways that lead to heartache and emptiness. The way of Christ is a determined way of faith. We may not know each step before it is taken, but we walk in His love knowing that he goes with us. If we stumble, he helps us up. The end is eternal life with the riches of Jesus Christ. Keep your eyes on the path of life and show the character of Christ our Master who made the way through suffering and His own blood spilled to bring us to the kingdom of God.

Pro 4:26  Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
Pro 4:27  Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

Turn not to the right hand nor to the left,.... Either into the road of immorality and profaneness, or into that of error, superstition, and false worship; but attend to the way of holiness and truth, directed to in the word of God; see Isa 30:21; nor be moved out of it by threatenings and menaces, nor by flatteries and promises; neither be cast down with adversity, nor be lifted up with prosperity; but keep on in an even way, attending to that which is just and right; leaving all events with God, as knowing you are in the way of your duty, and in which he would have you walk; (John Gill)

Isa 30:21  And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.

The walk in the Spirit is a Holy walk. We are yoked together with our Lord and savior, so keep going and keep the faith.
