In Psalm 66, verses 8 and 9, we are told “Let the whole world bless our God and loudly sing his praises. Our lives are in his hands, and he keeps our feet from stumbling.”
These simple lines really spoke to me tonight, I have felt quite a bit lately that God is directing my path every day and keeping me from stumbling. I was thinking today about some verses in Paul’s letters where he writes that whenever he wants to do the right thing, he inevitably does the wrong thing (to paraphrase).
I have felt like that a lot lately; I have a tendency to rationalize my behavior like all of us do and sometimes I do what I want rather than what I should. It seems like when it matters most, God is always there to guide me and to prod me along the path that is the best for the health of my soul, no matter how I resist.
David wrote about his own resistance to God’s will in some of his Psalms, and how much discomfort he felt about this awareness. But in the end it is like the verses above say, God is always trying to keep us from stumbling in the wrong direction; whether the lessons are harsh or soft, the intent is always the same, to guide us in a path that is best for our souls, so that we may rejoin him in our heavenly home.
