Many of us have read the classic, Footprints in the Sand, poem. The poem, that has one set of footprints looking back over one’s life and at other times there are two sets of footprints. The times where there are only one set of footprints, is when the Lord carries you. As I reread Psalm 119 the other day, I saw something new about the importance of the Word of God.
Establish my footsteps in Your word, And do not let any iniquity have dominion over me. Psalm 119:133 (NASB)
As I read this scripture, I thought of the footprints poem and how God carries us and directs our steps. And then I had another thought – Do I have my footsteps established in His Word? Do you have your footsteps established in His Word?
If someone picked up your Bible, would they see your footsteps all over the pages of God’s Word? God’s Word contains everything man needs to know.
Here are just some truths that will encourage you from Psalm 119.
- Brings happiness (v. 1,56)
- Purity (v. 9)
- Wise advice (v. 24)
- Revival (v. 25, 50)
- Encouragement (v. 28)
- Giver of Life (v. 37)
- Freedom (v. 45)
- Comfort (v. 50,52)
- Makes us wise (v. 98)
- Guidance (v. 133)
I would like to challenge you to read Psalm 119 and mark every time you see what God’s Word offers you. I am sure you will be able to add to the list before you. Finding God’s Word, Desiring God’s Word and Loving God’s Word is what transforms our inner being. His Word tells us: that the eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him ( 2 Chron.16:9)
So, let us be women that seek after God with our whole hearts and watch how He will bless you with His presence….He shows up every time!
