Where Feet May Fall
Monday, 24 July 2017
Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.
I preached a sermon yesterday on the Fifth Petition of the Lord’s prayer: “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”   I worked on it all week, and came up with an idea to look at what forgiveness isn’t, as in all the ways we think we have forgiving hearts and spirit, but it is decidedly not that.
I thought it would be a good lesson on how to get to the true heart and spirit of forgiveness.
But then Saturday came, and a conflicting spirit ended up inside of me, and I think the sermon was more about what I need to do, like I was preaching to myself!   It was almost like an out of body experience: preaching and being preached to!  By my own sermon!
And now it is Monday morning, and my week is just beginning.  I don’t know exactly where my feet may fall this week, or how many steps I am going to take or where the potholes are which may cause me to stumble and fall….but I do know this, that wherever I go, I need to carry with me two things:
1.      The knowledge that I have to trust the Lord and stop my own brain from trying to figure it out.
2.      That if I truly acknowledge Him, my path will be okay.
Sounds pretty easy, and you know what?  It is.   We just have to get past our own understanding and rely on Him to show us the way.
So today, I start my walk.  Yesterday’s sermon still in mind, trusting in the Lord, leaving my brain off line, and because I do trust in Him and all He did for me, that he will guide every step I take.
Wherever my feet may fall, He will be there with me.
Be Well, Do Good Work...and
Be Blessed Like Crazy!
