Psalm 37: 23,24
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.
Imagine your son or daughter coming home from a three week visit to Grandma’s. You are overjoyed to see them. While they were there, they were able to take part in some very special activities–a birthday party for Grandpa and a weekend trip to the mountains. With big smiles on both of your faces, you hang on to every word they say. Joy clings to your heart as you listen.
It’s not hard to imagine, is it? Why? Because when you love someone, what is important to them is important to you.
As His children, God delights in every detail of our lives. Is that hard to imagine?
When you walked to the podium to recieve a diploma, was He not pleased?
When you held your newborn child in your arms for the very first time, did He not smile along with you, pleased to present you with a miracle only He could fashion?
He loves us. He loves us with a love that ‘s great and mighty, because He is great and mighty.
He directs our steps.
He delights in us.
He holds us by the hand.
