God: puts a safeguard in place just in case….
Psalm 73:1-3 (KJV) “Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked”.
The term “if God be for you” can take on a different meaning and direction at times in our lives; we can somehow become so focus on the wrong things at times that we could easily be distracted and loose our footing.
We see those who prosper in their sinful manner and if God hadn’t blinded our eyes we would walk right along behind them. We see others doing things contrary to God and if it hadn’t been the Lord on our side then we would follow right along.
By gosh, we get tired of penny pinching and wonder at those who make gain erroneously. Our feet almost slip but thank God for Jesus: He kept me, He kept you, He is keeping us on the straight and narrow….
