God’s word is like each foot having a light on it. The path in front of us is illuminated by the lights on our feet. We see clearly if the light that we are using is His word.
Some of us refuse to believe in God or Jesus as God’s Son or that the Bible is the Word of God. When we do not believe there is no hope for us. In Luke it says, "Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness” (Luke 11:35 NASU).
What we may think is brilliant may be seen as foolishness to God. In 1 Corinthians we read, “Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men for behold your calling, brethren, that not many wise after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, (are called): but God chose the foolish things of the world, that he might put to shame them that are wise; and God chose the weak things of the world, that he might put to shame the things that are strong;” 1 Cor 1:25-27 ASV.
Your own wisdom will lead you astray. God’s wisdom will lead you to righteousness. Proverbs says, “I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment :” ( Prov 8:20 KJV).
If you are drifting away from God it is time to stop. You have control over where you are and where you go.
