HE has enlarged my steps under me so that my feet have not slipped
2 Samuel 22:37
As I was reading that scripture today I had a picture which brought the verse to life for me.
In the picture I saw myself walking behind Jesus. We were climbing up a steep and rocky mountain path, the kind of path that it’s so easy to slip and turn an ankle on. I watched as I followed HIM up along the pathway.
I noticed that each step I took as I climbed I was stepping into the impressions that HIS footsteps left. HIS footsteps were much bigger than mine. As my feet were so much smaller than HIS they fitted into HIS bigger footsteps and were protected from slipping and turning on the steep ground by the greater depth as well as length and breadth of HIS footsteps.
Wow, what a revelation and what reassurance that brought to my heart!!!
