23 A person’s steps are established by the Lord,
and he takes pleasure in his way.
24 Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed,
because the Lord supports him with his hand.
25 I have been young and now I am old,
yet I have not seen the righteous abandoned
or his children begging for bread.
26 He is always generous, always lending,
and his children are a blessing.
As we walk through our lives we will stumble and fall, but gratefully we have the Lord’s mighty hand to hold us securely. It is not the perfection of our steps that secures His support, but instead it is the direction of our ways that pleases His heart. Year by year and from one generation to the next, God is faithful even though we may fall. His generous hand will sustain our ways and secure our children’s future. Because He has blessed us and makes us secure, we can be a blessing to others around us.
- Thank God for the ways He has led your life.
- Thank God for the ways He has blessed you.
- Thank Him for His faithfulness to you and your family.
- Ask Him to help you be a blessing to others in the ways He has blessed you.
