He restoreth my soul; He leatheth me in the paths of righteousness for His name shake.
Today's lesson text solidifies the fact that when we as believers become discouraged there is the Lord God our Good Shepherd ready with out stretched arms to revives and re-energize our very souls as only He can. It is God's unmerited favor that provides the help we need whenever needed. Isn't that just like God?
It is by God's unmerited favor that leads us in the paths of righteousness that leads to holy living. This is accomplished through His written Word which is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths (Psalm 119:105). 2 Timothy 3:16-17 outlines the purpose of scriptures all of which is for our benefit.
That said, believers living holy is a testament to God's desire for His children to look like Him as He is righteous and holy. He went to great lengths to make this happen; He gave His Son; He left His Word and He has His spokespersons rightly diving the Word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). There is no excuse for believers and humanity as a whole failing to walk the road of righteousness as the way have been paved for us.
Believers we are well equipped to walk in the righteousness of God; therefore, walk therein.
