Verses that inspire

The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him;
(Psalm 37:23)

This verse inspired and comforted me recently. To me, this verse says that if we are walking with Him, and delighting in His word and His companionship, we can step out into the unknown of each day with a firm and confident step.

When you are a caregiver for an older person, you find that their steps are tentative, perhaps shaky. They are not confident that they are putting their feet somewhere that is "OK" to step on, nor are they too sure of their own strength to make that next stride. 

Is that how we are going through our Christian lives?

God has promised us that not only will He make sure the path in front of us is "OK," but He will give us the strength to take those next steps.

                    The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand. (Psalm 37:23-24)
Have you a verse or passage to tell us about, that has helped you recently? Leave a comment to tell others -- it may bless them in ways that we cannot imagine!

Psalm 37 is one of my favourite psalms! Along the same lines I love the words from Ps 119:105 "Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path" xx

I so liked this and I believe it implicitly. I also love the same verse that Austin Towers mentioned. Two of my heartfelt favorites.
