God Protects Our Paths

“He will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked shall be silent in darkness. For by strength no man shall prevail. The adversaries of the Lord shall be broken in pieces; from heaven He will thunder against them. The Lord will judge the ends of the earth. He will give strength to His king, and exalt the horn of His anointed.”
1 Samuel 2:9-10

Hannah praised God and proclaimed, “He guards the feet of His saints.” I like that! She trusted God in a very dark time in her life, and through prayer, prevailed over her rival Peninnah. There are many Scriptures that speak about how God protects our feet. He is the One who directs, guides, and protects our path as Christians:

Psalm 18:33 He makes my feet like the feet of deer, and sets me on my high places.

Psalm 40:2 He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my steps.

Psalm 56:13 For You have delivered my soul from death. Have You not kept my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Consider these Scriptures. As a Christian, in what place do you find yourself today? Wherever place you find yourself, trust God to take you to higher ground, to deliver you, to keep you ,and to direct your path. 

To trust God in the light is nothing, but to trust Him in the dark––that is faith
~C.H. Spurgeon~
