Proverbs 4:26 – Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
There is a way that seems right before a man, but the end thereof leads to destruction. Our bible reading for today gives an instruction that aims towards the direction of a moral life that is to be accompanied with an attention to the moral conduct.
Brethren you are to remove every obstacle which may impede or render insecure the way of moral life, and thus avoid every false step.
Today many things seems to be right before men but unfortunately its wrong before God, i use to have a saying that “things we do or say that doesnt matter, will become matters arising on the judgement day”. Every believers needs to watch and pray and guild your heart with all diligence.
To Ponder is to “weigh” one’s action before taking the necessary steps. “Weigh your conduct as in a balance; before acting, consider the consequences and nature of the act.”
The bible verse also made us to understand that to Ponder the path of our feet to make our ways be established is to Inspect our way of life. The way of the righteous is light; Christ is their Way, and he is the Light.
You inspect them every morning and test them every minute.Psa 18:30 Your way is perfect, LORD, and your word is correct. You are a shield for those who run to you for help.
You are to ensure that every step you make is one step away from evil, For it is better, if the will of God wills it, to suffer for well-doing than for evil-doing.1Pe 3:17.
In submission, you are not to let your behaviour be like that of this world, but be changed and made new in mind, so that by experience you may have knowledge of the good and pleasing and complete purpose of God
