The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn,
which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.
But the way of the wicked is like total darkness.
They have no idea what they are stumbling over
Total darkness, that scares me. One of the things that first drew me toward salvation was fear of basically everything evil. I have written before about being scared. But, can you imagine how frightening it would be to not even know what the cause of your stumbling was? Weird!
I don't like to stumble and I hate to fall down! Darkness causes both.
The deepest darkness is that of our enemy. But it usually isn't the most evil things that cause us to stumble, in fact it is usually things that look lovely or fun. Satan is brilliant and knows our weaknesses and how to cause stumbling. Walk in the way of righteousness and the enemy is powerless against us. How cool is that!! I learned today - I can avoid stumbling by walking always in God's brilliant light!!
