The Way of Man vs. The Way of God
“There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.” (Prov. 16.25). There are many ways which seems right to a man. The self-righteous man pats himself on the back and takes pleasure in his own self-worth (Lk. 18.9-14).
There is the way of the fool who fumbles around (not knowing his left foot from his right), yet he justifies his way (Ecc. 10.3; Prov. 15.21). There are the ways of the sinners, scoffers, and the ungodly who find joy in themselves at the expense of others (Prov. 2.12-16).
You may drive down the highway and it seems right, but maybe you feel uneasy about it. You may not be sure it is the right road. At first it seems right, but when you get to the end of that road you find that it is not the place you intended.
Now, there are many roads and ways in life that may feel like the right way at times, but every way should be thoroughly tested. How can you find the right way? How can you test if the road you are on is right? Steer your mind and thought towards God’s word.
It is the light to your path in this world (Ps. 119.105); it is what will equip you for every good thing in the sight of God (2 Tim. 3.16-17). The world is dark, and has many dead ends, but the steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He delights in his way (Ps. 37.23).
