THE 2nd OF JUNE
GOD PROTECTS OUR STEPS, BECAUSE WE ARE HIS CHILDREN
He guards the feet of His godly (faithful) ones, but the wicked ones are silenced and perish in darkness; for a man shall not prevail by might. – 1 Samuel 2:9
God protects the feet of His faithful children. This is such an amazing and encouraging promise! To know that it does not matter how bad it looks in the natural, if we choose to follow God’s advice, go where He wants us to go and do what He wants us to do, the Lord God almighty guards our steps! He takes care of us and prevents evil attacks against us! He never allows anything bad in our lives that He cannot use for our good in the long term! Glory and honor to our Lord!
Even if for a while it seems that the wicked people prosper and can hurt us as much as they want, it is not forever and if they do not sincerely repent, it will cost them dearly here and for eternity. As the apostle Paul recorded in 2 Corinthians 5:10, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” Our victory is not by force and not by might. The true, final, everlasting victory comes by the Holy Spirit, as the Lord says in Zechariah 4:6.
Dear Father, Thank You so much for protecting my steps and my ways! Please help me to never turn in the wrong direction, but always follow You closely so that I will always be in Your will and under the protection of Your wings! Please touch those who try to hurt me, so they may know You, repent and renounce their evil ways, so that they will stop hurting me and others and not end up in hell for eternity. Thank You so much for Your Holy Spirit and for the victory I have in Jesus because of the new birth in Christ’ Name! Praises, glory and honor to Your holy Name, dear Lord. Amen
