"The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple” - Psalm 19:7”
Reading, study and meditation of God’s Word is the only way to being able to discern whether we have wandered away from the law of God. It is quick, powerful and sharp like a sword; piercing open the whole man, searching for anything contrary to the teachings of God’s Holy Law.
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” - Hebrews 4:12
It would be impossible to escape its searching of the heart and mind. Anything that is there, anything contrary to holiness will be discovered.
There is no other book in the world that can penetrate deep into the heart of a man, then God’s Holy Word. Whatever is there will be seen that could not be seen with the natural eye. If there is deceitfulness - God will see it. If there is hatred - God will see it. If there is hypocrisy - God will see it. Whatever is there, know that our All-Wise God in Heaven will see it.
Without the Light of the gospel, it would be impossible to know we have deviated or wandered away from the law of God. It is perfect and complete with all that is needed to teach and guide a believer his walk with Christ.
That’s why we must regularly read and study God’s word, to not only know the truth about our Savior, also to discover the truth about ourselves.
