Is God Paying Attention?

10 May

The steps of a good man are ordered by theLord,
And He delights in his way. Psalm 37:23

The word “good” was added to the verse at some point in time, perhaps as a distinction from the “wicked” in other verses in this Psalm.  Don’t count the “good” in this verse as a disqualification.  Remember that all of our goodness comes from God.  And God prepares a path for us and DELIGHTS in watching us toddle along it.  “He [God] delighteth in his [our] way. As parents are pleased with the tottering footsteps of their babes. All that concerns a saint is interesting to his heavenly Father. God loves to view the holy strivings of a soul pressing forward to the skies. In the trials and the joys of the faithful, Jesus has fellowship with them, and delights to be their sympathising companion” (The Treasury of David).

God is paying attention.

The steps of a [good] man are directed andestablished by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step]. Amp
