The Psalmist knew that as we turn to God, we are led every step of the way. The paths of righteousness are not about self righteousness nor do they have anything to do with worldly ideas of right and wrong.
The way of Righteousness is in honoring God’s own knowledge of how things are. The path to that wisdom is discovered in proceeding step-by-step, going forward as He guides and directs us.
This guidance comes from within, in the conscious awareness that God is present in all circumstances and conditions. We are blessed with this awareness when we consistently seek first the kingdom of God and in stillness He restores our soul.
Thank you Most Wondrous God that this is so.
