How God Gives Peace To The Just


But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more

 unto the perfect day. – Proverbs 4:18


Notice the “Path of the just” – On our part we must search our hearts and make sure that our heart is “pure in the sight of God.”  If we begin to search our own heart, and ask God to turn His searchlight upon us as David did, then we are volunteering to let God examine our thoughts and actions, to be for His glory and our edification.  “Search me, O God, and know my heart:  try me, and know my thoughts:  And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”  Psalm 139: 23-24.   In Christ’s message known as the “Sermon on the Mount,” He mentions “things” that the gentiles seek after, but from the heart we are to seek after God.  “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  Matthew 6:21


In Proverbs, the writer gives the right attitude of heart for our lives:  “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”  Proverbs 3:5-6


God will not withhold any good thing from them that walk uprightly.  Psalm 84: 11
