For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. Then you will understand what is right and just and fair---every good path. For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you. Proverbs 2:6, 9-11
Do not set foot on the path of the wicked or walk in the way of evildoers. Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn from it and go on your way. The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble. Proverbs 4:14-15, 18-19
In this life we are faced with choosing one of two paths, which are MAJOR PATHS. One PATH is for the RIGHTEOUS, the other is for the WICKED. If you are a TRUE CHILD of God you are considered RIGHTEOUS. If you seek after WISDOM, and ASK God for it, He will GIVE it to you. The writer of this Proverb, tells us that from God’s mouth come KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING. And when we ASK, He will give us UNDERSTANDING of what is RIGHT, JUST and FAIR, which concerns EVERY GOOD PATH, or the way we live our lives. God PROTECTS those who by His wisdom are MORALLY UPRIGHT, those who belong to Him.
This WISDOM is MORE than intellectual abilities, it is using SOUND JUDGMENT. When WISDOM enters your HEART, DISCRETION will bring you PROTECTION and UNDERSTANDING will KEEP you.
In Proverbs 4:14-15, are commands to STEER CLEAR of the PATH of the WICKED: Do NOT set foot on the PATH of the WICKED or WALK in the WAY of EVILDOERS. AVOID IT!! Do NOT travel on it; TURN AWAY from it and GO on YOUR way. The two PATHS are DRASTICALLY different. The RIGHTEOUS PATH is STRAIGHT, and the LIGHT on the path leads the TRUE BELIEVER on an UNHAMPERED path. However, the PATH of the WICKED is clouded in DEEP DARKNESS and is CROOKED and full of STUMBLING, BUMBLING obstacles. The WICKED will PERISH, but the RIGHTEOUS will FLOURISH. The PATH of the RIGHTEOUS leads to an ETERNITY in HEAVEN, with ALL its BLESSINGS. The PATH of the WICKED leads to an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. Which PATH are YOU on? If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, I’m afraid that you are on the PATH of the WICKED, headed for an ETERNITY in HELL. However, God wants YOU to make a WISE choice and choose the PATH of the RIGHTEOUS. IN order to CHANGE your PATH, you MUST BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle and TURN TO HIM, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then CONFESS your sins to Him, and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. And ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and get on the PATH of the RIGHTEOUS, and be able to ENTER your ETERNAL HOME, HEAVEN. Do this NOW, while you still can He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
