Sure Footing

Chainsaw work, cleanup, etc., for an elderly single woman.

The ground in the back area was very bumpy; it is very easy to trip, and with the long grass, hard to see the ground. It is a good contrast to a life spent following Jesus. To be in Jesus’ presence is to have our feet on sure footing in contrast to crooked, weak, or bumpy footing. Psalms says,

"My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless the LORD." [Psa 26:12]

Hannah sings in The Spirit,

"He will keep the feet of His saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail." [1 Sam 2:9]

And again in Proverbs,

"The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain." [Prov 15:19]

Our footing comes from following Jesus’ guidance/leading. Solomon says, “he that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.” [Prov 10:9] And so, our desire should be to walk in The LORD’s ways, in a smooth way; As David prays,

"Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies." [Psa 27:11]

We should seek to obey Jesus’ words as found in The Bible. That will ensure we are on His smooth path, which, though sprinkled with trials, will allow us to run our race without tripping and falling. God tells us in Proverbs that those who do not let wisdom, understanding, or knowledge “depart from thine eyes” will “walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.”
