You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.

Psalm 17:5


5 Hold up [tamak] my goings ['ashur] in thy paths, [ma`gal] that my footsteps [pa`am] slip [mowt] not. KJV-Interlinear


5 My steps have held fast to Thy paths. My feet have not slipped. NASB


Life is filled with difficulties, especially due to the actions or words of others. There is no shortage of pressures or types of pressures that can come out of other people, out of bureaucracies, out of systems, out of nature itself.

When you have been wronged or feel that you have been wronged, it is easy to get angry, and/or get even, or at the very least to feel the urge to get your revenge or vindication at your own hands or by some other means.

However, David offers this prayer to God the Father, to help him keep his mind and life, on the straight path and to resist the urge to take some sinful revenge tactic.

Doctrine is the only source that can enable you to accomplish that resistance to react.

David had a colorful life. He had difficulty with Saul. He had many wives and mistresses. He had many enemies both from within his own family and from outside of the country.

David did not live a perfect and sin free life. None of us can do that. But remember, the occasional fall is not in view here, but the consistent pattern of life that you lead, is.

David fell on his self-righteous face many times, but overall, he always came back to doctrine and got his life together. He picked up the pieces and dusted himself off when he failed, and got back on track with doctrine.

He placed all credit in God, through doctrine, giving doctrine the full credit for his successes, not himself.

Paths and foortsteps make up the courses that we all follow in life. Most folks pursue their own course, thinking that they are somewhat better off due to their own efforts. But in fact there are but two paths available, and two paths only.

There is Satan's path of evil, which is the default nature of man, and there is the path of good, which comes only through the study of Bible doctrine.

If you do not pursue a daily study, do not confess your sins regularly to remain in fellowship, do not practice that which you learn, namely doctrine, then you are on the path of evil. You cannot reason or pretend or justify your path and make is equal with Gods path.

Human effort is rejected, because human effort is no better than human arrogance or evil. Remember Isaiah's filthy rags study.

In order to travel Gods path, you must have Gods engine, Gods fuel, Gods map, and those all come only through Bible doctrine.
