For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. (Proverbs 2:6-8)
Today’s Morsel: As saints of God, we should always rest in serenity knowing that God cares for us and protects us. The same way that He covered and protected Israel, He does the same for His saints. Scripture tells us that He preserves the way of His saints. God does this by His grace. As the psalmist said, “He suffereth not our feet to slip” (Psalms 66:9). In her prayer, Hannah said, “The LORD killeth, and maketh alive: he bringeth down to the grave, and bringeth up. The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD'S, and he hath set the world upon them. He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail” (1 Samuel 2:6-9). And by His angelic host, “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways” (Psalms 91:11). The saints are ever under the watchful care and mighty protection of The Lord Jehovah. “Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies” (Psalms 108:13). God is a buckler to them that walk upright before Him. He keeps us in all situations and circumstances.
Sing: He hideth my soul in the cleft of the rock that shadows a dry, thirsty land; He hideth my life in the depths of His love, and covers me there with His hand, and covers me there with His hand.
Thought For Today: He maketh my feet like hind’s feet and causes me to walk upon my high places.
