Care of Our Feet

He will keep the feet of his saints. (1 Samuel 2:9)

The way is slippery and our feet are feeble, but the Lord will keep our feet. If we give ourselves up by obedient faith to be His holy ones, He will Himself be our guardian. Not only will He charge His angels to keep us, but He Himself will preserve our goings.

He will keep our feet from falling so that we do not defile our garments, wound our souls, and cause the enemy to blaspheme.

He will keep our feet from wandering so that we do not go into paths of error, or ways of folly, or courses of the world’s custom.

He will keep our feet from swelling through weariness, or blistering because of the roughness and length of the way.

He will keep our feet from wounding: our shoes shall be iron and brass so that even though we tread on the edge of the sword, or on deadly serpents, we shall not bleed or be poisoned.

He will also pluck our feet out of the net. We shall not be entangled by the deceit of our malicious and crafty foes.

With such a promise as this, let us run without weariness and walk without fear. He who keeps our feet will do it effectually.

Charles Spurgeon

"He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places." Psalm 18:33

And how sure-footed is a hind among the animals?

I've seen videos of the Big Horn Sheep on high mountain ranges. Just watching them has me wanting to close my eyes for what is about to happen next! Totally amazing! As is our Father!!

Thanks for sharing brother.

God always has ready for us whatever He knows is needed to our situation. Man's problem is that even as a believer he too often does not know what is needed... We don't want to fall and God does not want us to fall either, so likely anyone who is trusting in Him will become, spiritually speaking, very sure-footed.

That is why some who have walked from birth in the faith are more shore footed, while those who have come later in life do so with a bit more trepidation.

I have found that is it easier for people who are younger physical to change or be changed than for those who are older. Nevertheless the old saying that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks is not valid. The 'old dog' (me being one) can learn, it is simply a slower and more difficult process.

But... having said that, consider that our spiritual age is where we should be growing... that is, improving... that is, maturing in the things of God.

The "old man" of us is dying and is going to die, while the "new man" doesn't ever have to die. All he needs to do is to keep on walking with those "sure-feet" straight ahead on the highway of holiness.

"He [new man] must increase, but I [old man] must decrease." John 3:30

So, we become more surefooted on that path when we learn to walk it in the spirit. For in truth I tire of stumbling and being unsteady as I continue to press forward dear brother. My longing grows as well to that one day a Rock Steadiness which will last for eternity is a reality for me. So in 1 Samuel 2:9 His Word is a steadying comfort for me.
