Psalm 119:9 (KJV)
Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
Psalm 119:9 (NIV)
How can a young person stay on the path of purity?
By living according to your word.
Psalm 119 verse 9 stood out to me.
What a wonderful set of words God has given to us to help us know that if we live according to His Word we can keep our way pure.
God’s Word tells us to live in a righteous way. We are told that few will be walking on the straight and narrow path that leads to life.
We should not be surprised by the way other people are doing their own thing instead of doing what God says.
FEW PEOPLE WILL WALK ON THE STRAIGHT & NARROW PATH THAT LEADS TO LIFE.
We would like it if there were many people who are like minded with us but it may be wise to learn and accept the truth that many people will be walking on the wide road that leads to destruction.
Once a Christian begins to grasp that truth they can begin to walk on the narrow path with an understanding that few will be walking side by side with them.
That does not mean the Christian will be walking alone. The Lord will be with you when you walk with him. He will be on your side when you are doing what is right.
There are other Christian people that seek to serve the Lord with joy in their hearts. They also understand that we will find wolves that are wearing the clothing of sheep. They will know that a few have lost their way.
Do what you know is right and remember that pleasing God is more important than pleasing anyone else.
