KEY SCRIPTURE: Prov 4:18 KJV” But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.”
Who is the just. The just are those who live by trusting God. Heb 10:38 KJV Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. The just also means, those whose ways please the Lord, since they live by faith according to Heb 11:6. The just also have righteousness being imputed on their account. Romans 4:3 KJV” For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.”
From the above, we learn that the just walk in the ways or according to the word of God. They take time to learn from God’s word 2 Tim 2:15 KJV” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” He is not put to shame because, through study or diligence he has come to know the right ways of life, and therefore treads thereby. He has a lamp unto his feet and a light unto his path. He does not stumble, for He is like the man whom Jesus said walks in the day, and so has the light of the day. John 11:9 KJV” Jesus answered, Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walks in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world.”
Our key scripture says His way, is like the shining light, that keeps shining unto the perfect day.
The path of the just is the way of rest. He does not fret about what happens around Him. This man constantly celebrates the Lord for His victories which is his victory as well. The just has a continuous stream of victory.
The Bible is full of characters who tread on the path of the just. One of such men was King David. He wrote, the Lord is my shepherd, and so I shall not want. He added, thou I walk through the valley of the shadows of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me. King David lived His life in the presence of God and kept shinning till he left the earth scene.
I live and walk on the path of the just. My life is simply based and depended on the infallible word of God. He keeps me winning daily unto that perfect day, when we Shall meet in glory.
THOUGHT: KEEP YOUR WAYS SHINNING BY STAYING WITH THE WORD
