Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Psalm 37:23-24 NLT

The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the LORD holds them by the hand.

Reflection . . .

What a great promise for us to hold onto! Knowing that the Lord will never let us fall is an assurance that keeps us encouraged and dependent on Him.

There is something here that we need to notice though. The Lord directs the steps of the “godly”. That means those who are set apart for His purposes and desire to do His will and what He has planned for their lives. To be godly means we are on the journey towards becoming more like Christ.

Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.  Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have declared so well before many witnesses.

1 Tim. 6:11b-12 NLT
