“The just exist by faith and his path is from one level of faith to another”
The just is a righteous man and how he walks is by faith because the Bible says the just lives by faith
Hebrews 10:38 NOW THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
The word of God says “the just… ” so it’s clear about the person spoken of here that “the just shall live by faith” that’s how the just lives, he lives by faith. For a righteous man to live out of faith is death to him, he understands how to live. When a man understand how he should live and how his survival here depend on that thing, he will do nothing than to live by it. We understand by the word of God that a good man is also a just man and his steps are ordered by the Lord
Psalms 37:23 THE STEPS OF A GOOD MAN ARE ORDERED BY THE LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
You see that? The steps of the good man are ordered by the Lord, he doesn’t just walk anyhow, for his steps are ordered, they are directed by the Lord, let’s see another translation
New Living Translation, Psalm 37:23 The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in EVERY DETAIL of their lives.
I love the word “the Lord”, the Lord directs the steps of the godly, this tells who the Lord direct his steps, is the godly! The godly is the just, the good man, the righteous man. Again, we see
“He delights in every detail of their lives”
The Lord delight in every detail of our lives as God’s people, as we tell Him those detail what He does is to direct and order our steps. Very quickly let’s link these scriptures together, let’s see the path of the just
Proverbs 4:18 BUT THE PATH OF THE JUST is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
“What makes the path of the just to keep shining brighter and brighter is faith and the order he receives from the Lord”
We must understand that something led to the word “BUT THE PATH OF THE JUST”
This we see in the previous verses
Proverbs 4:14 Enter not into THE PATH OF THE WICKED, and go not in the way of evil men.
We see that the wicked have their own path, but the path of the just is as a shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto the day of the Lord. This is because their steps are ordered by the Lord and they walk that path by faith because they actually live by faith, so as we walk in faith with God our path will keep shining brighter and brighter unto the day of the Lord, because the perfect day is the day of the Lord. The believer’s walk is a walk of faith and as we walk by faith with the Lord He orders our steps because God delight in every detail of our lives. That’s how the path of the just is, brighter and brighter unto the perfect day, the day of the Lord as He receives order from the Lord unto his path, it is not enough to receive the order of the Lord, we must obey it.
“Obedience is the ingredient that keep the path of the just to shine brighter and brighter unto the perfect day”
For as we obey the Lord and walk by faith in Him and as our steps are ordered by the Lord our path becomes brighter and brighter. You never meet a just man stagnant, it only get brighter and brighter unto the perfect day because the Lord orders his steps.
