He lifted me out of the pit of despair, and out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. (Psalm 40:2 NLT)
Many times God has kept me from falling while on a slippery path. Oftentimes I have gotten bogged down in the mire of sin because of my own wrongdoing. I ignored the road side warning signs in the Word of God and skidded off the proven path onto a slippery one. Once confession is made God is right there to reach out his hand and lift us back up onto solid ground.
I remember one time driving my daughter home from a flute lesson. We were coming over a hill when you couldn't see the other side until you reached the top. As I crested the hill and started down the other side, I saw a man walking toward us in my lane. I swerved to avoid striking him and miraculously missed running into the ditch. To this day I don't know how we avoided an accident except that God must have dispatched an angel to watch over us. I breathed a sigh of relief and said, "Thank you Jesus!"
Aren't you glad that God has his angels watching over you?
