Proverbs 4:11 tells us, "I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in the right paths." God has given us the road map of life. We have to choose if we will read the map, allow our hearts to be saturated with His word, and follow His directions.
"That thou mayest walk in the way of a good men, and keep the paths of the righteous." Proverbs 2:20
"Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths." Psalm 25:4
If we ask God to direct our paths, read and study His word we can walk the path of righteousness the Lord has laid before us.
