The Path of Righteousness

Deut. 30:20 Cling to God, for He is your life

Exodus 19:3-8 God invites the Israelites to be His own possessions and to represent Him to the watching world (Gen. 1:26-28)

2 Sam. 7:23 God redeemed a nation for himself and uses them to bring glory to himself

Exodus 13:21 Cloud by day; pillar of fire by night; God wanted the Israelites to walk blindfolded learning to enjoy God on their journey and to trust Him for protection.

1 Peter 2:9,12 God wants us to represent him in a way that glorifies Him

Psalm 145:8-20 God is good to all and has compassion on everything he has made; he is trustworthy and faithful; he upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down; we depend on him and he feeds us; he opens his hand and satisfies the desires if every living thing; he is near to all who call on him and saves them; he watches over all who love Him

Psalm 23. He restores my soul; he guides me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake; “walk through the valley of the shadow of death”and ‘thy rod and thy sta they comfort me” ‘goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.’

Deut. 8:2,3 the wilderness is worth it; hard is GOOD for me!

James 1:2-18 God is using trials to perfect and complete me; I don’t have to give in to temptation in the middle of trials

Eph 1:22-23 and Col. 1:15 and 2:9-11 Supremacy of Christ, the perfect image bearer

Rom. 8:28, 29 and Gal. 5:22, 23 growing in the image of Christ is good

Repentance: turning and walking the opposite direction
   I don’t turn to idols to serve me
   I serve God

Brokenness: giving up the fight; not trying to win anymore; submission; humility
