The Path of Righteousness

Posted on

The Path of Righteousness

God’s role in our life, is as that of a shepherd to his sheep. The role the shepherd plays in the sheep life is to provide them with all the things they need to keep them comfortable. His responsibility to his sheep is to prevent them from having the lack of anything they need. The treatment the shepherd provides for his sheep is Love and Protection.

The sheep has only one responsibility to the shepherd: Follow

“The Lord is my shepherd” is a personal statement from the writer. It explains the benefits of accepting God as his shepherd. He explains the things he received from following the path of righteousness:

  1. Not having the lack of the basic things of life: and receiving God’s blessings.
  2. Green Pastures the writer describes are having the ability to lie down in; is the enjoyment of a good life such as having the best things life has to offer: accessories to wear, education, food, shelter, good health, transportation, and all the things that results in living a comfortable lifestyle.
  3. Still Waters represent living a peaceful life; feeling safe, and one that is happiness.
  4. We can conclude here that the results for the follower on the path of righteousness, is as the writer gives us an insight into: When confronted with the greatest of evil, don’t be afraid to face the challenge, and persevere, because God’s Love and Power will defend you.

To follow the path of righteousness, there is a need to pray to God daily, asking for forgiveness, not taking life for granted, and asking him for guidance to make the right choices and decisions that will result in righteous judgments that are just. Prayer gives us peace and comforts our hearts and results in contentment with happiness. We too can say, The Lord Is My Shepherd

Inspiration: (King James Bible)

BLESSED is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of  sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD: and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.  (From Psalm 1)

The Need for Prayer

Posted on

There will always be a need for prayers. In good times, and in bad times, we need blessings, and protection from God. One does not have to be religious to pray. Sincerity is the only thing that is necessary. It is when each of us humble ourselves and petition God for help, that we see results of our prayers. Recognizing that we are humans dwelling in a body that is not above the possibility to sin, gives us understanding to know that we should pray for guidance and strength each day.

God Give Us Your Blessings

Our Father God,

Comfort the hearts of those who are sad, give them memories of happiness and love.

Let peace dwell within the minds of those who are tormented with grief.

Give strength to the weak, and heal the broken hearts.

Heal the sick bodies of those who are afflicted and wounded, of their pain.

Father, remember the poor and needy, and those who suffers from hunger and homelessness.

Shower us with financial blessings, and give us knowledge and wisdom to help others.

Father, help us to accept all people as your creation. Give us understanding to know that we are The Family of God.

Our Father God, to you we give honor, and ask for your blessings in good health and prosperity.

Thank you for extending to us, your grace and mercy.  Amen

Watching the sunrise gives hope for a beautiful day. __ Ellen J. Barrier

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence come my help.

My help come from the LORD which made heaven and earth.

He will not suffer your foot to be moved: he that keeps you will not slumber,

Behold, he that keeps Israel, shall neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD is your keeper: the LORD is your shade upon your right hand.

The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.

The LORD shall preserve you from all evil: he shall preserve your soul.

The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in from this

Time forth, and even for evermore.
