From Amy Carmichael

Psalm 1:6 The Lord knoweth the way of the righteous.

Psalm 1 seems to be the perfect psalm for the beginning of a new month, because of v. 6, "The Lord knoweth the way," the way through this new month, the way through this new day.

I find from Young's Concordance that the word used for "way" here means "trodden path," but this new month, this new day, is an untrodden path for us. We have not passed this way heretofore. How then "trodden?"

The Bible is full of surprises. They belong to "the delightfulness of the Lord" that we see if we dwell in His house all the days of our life. This delight is a new one to me, and it is delight to share it. The word "trodden path" is the word used in the prayer, "Teach me Thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path," a trodden path - a Leader always goes before, and so the path is trodden.

Edges of His Ways, February 1
