Paths of Righteousness

Psalm 23:3 “He guides me in paths of righteousness (right decision making) for His Name’s sake.”

winding-path

We are all on a journey of life. The choices we make along the way affect us and those around us. There are consequences for stepping off the path of right decision making. If you’re like me, you often make a choice that is wrong and you try to “fix it,” or you try to talk God into making it work. Yeah – I’ve done that a few times in my life, and the consequences hurt.

The bad thing is, the enemy of our soul is the accuser and will bring up those wrong choices to try and make us ineffective in what God has called us to do for Him.

The good thing is, Jesus waits for us with open arms and unconditional love when we get off that path of right decision making.

I have just returned from a weekend with my sister Tami, my niece Nikki, and my daughter Kristin. We were in Atlanta, Georgia to spend time with Nikki as she leaves today on a missions trip to 11 countries in 11 months.  I saw a young lady who has grown so deeply in Jesus, and watched her rejoice in the choice she made in leaving the comforts of home, family and friends. If you’ve read any of her blogs lately you know the decision to go on this missions trip was difficult for her. But now she is fully committed and knows she made the right choice for this time on her life’s journey. I believe she is on a path of right decision making for His Name’s sake. In other words, she is making known the love of Jesus to different people groups in Central America, Asia and Africa. That path of righteousness is for His Name sake.

As Kristin just wrote on her blog entry a couple days ago, we are all different, and have traveled on paths that are as different as our personalities and giftings. And that is what the “Body of Christ” is all about. (Romans 12:4-8)

You have giftings that are unique to you. You are traveling on a path, a journey of life. Whether you make right decisions today or tomorrow is up to you. God gives each one of us the freedom of choice. He also says, if you need wisdom to make right choices you can ask Him for it. (James 1:5) And if you have made a wrong choice in your past you can ask for forgiveness because Jesus paid for it already on the cross. God is in the restoration business, so don’t despair if you’ve made some wrong choices. Just walk with Jesus now on the path of righteousness for His Name’s sake!

A great way to start a new year….right?
