1 Samuel 2:9 NIV: He will guard the feet of his faithful servants, but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness. “It is not by strength that one prevails;
Many who do not understand that God is the epicenter of all that we do in life tend to ignore Him and feel that they can make it on their own strength. Some die along the way, some who try to make it through ungodly means suddenly end up in their ruin.
But today, we see the scripture reminding us that we cannot prevail by our own strength. It does not matter how hard we try, we need Him to help us. Our text today, also reminds us that it is the Lord who guides the feet of His faithful servants.
Stop trying by your own strength to succeed. Hand over your struggles to Him. Ask him to bless the works of your hands. Ask Him to guide your steps as you journey through life. He is faithful to keep His words and guide you and give you the grace to prevail.
Declare to yourself loud: The Lord is my guide.
Heavenly Father, bless the works of my hands and guide my steps as I journey through this life. In Jesus Name. Amen.
