“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand. I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread.” ( Psalms 37:23-25 NKJV).
“There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.” (Proverbs 14:12 NKJV).
“Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.” (Psalms 1:1-6 NKJV).
“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” (Ephesians 5:15-17 NKJV)
2 Thessalonians 3:6 tells us :
Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you withdraw yourselves from every brother that walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
Disorderly: to knowingly walk irregular and inconsistent in the way the Lord established for us.
However, 1 Corinthians 15:33-34 warns us : Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God…
+++Let us examine our walk with the Lord and our communications with one another.
+++The Lord has graced us to live fully pleasing unto Him. We can do it. Let us all do it and help each other along the way.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!
“Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, And to present you faultless Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, To God our Savior, Who alone is wise, Be glory and majesty, Dominion and power, Both now and forever. Amen.”
[Jude 1:24-25 NKJV].
