WORSHIP WEDNESDAY


Today I will post the first of a new series, Worship Wednesday by guest blogger, PT2006. I hope you enjoy these mini devotions and that they bless you as you go about your day. If you enjoy her post or have something to add to the discussion, please feel free to post comments.

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he will not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with His hand.” Psalms 37:23, 24 KJV

The book of Psalms contains a variety of petitions, prayers, and praises. Many of them can be recited today as applicable to this generation as they were in ancient times. Many a comfort can be found in the book of Psalms. Just as the original compositions soothed a raging King Saul, they soothe a variety of maladies today.

I like the way the Contemporary English Version translates these verses: “If you do what the LORD wants, He will make certain each step you take is sure. The LORD will hold your hand, and if you stumble, you still won’t fall.”

God does not always show us what lies ahead in our lives, but through His Word he shines a light on our path. As we are faithful to listen to Him and follow in the way He leads, we can walk sure-footed regardless of the terrain. Even on the boisterous seas, Peter found a solid place to walk as he kept his eyes on the Master. When his focus became dim, he began to sink. But Peter was not utterly cast down, for Jesus took hold of his hand and lifted him out of the water.

Take courage today and know that as long as you do what the LORD wants, He will hold your hand and keep you from falling. --PT2006
