Emerging Faith

“You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me so that my ankles do not turn.” Psalm 18:36.

Many times in life, we barely brush the dirt off our feet from one valley before we find ourselves deeply entrenched in another. We cannot lift out feet from the quicksand that seems to immobilize us.

Through the times that we feel we cannot step another step, walk another path and cry another tear God stoops down to sustain us and broadens the ground beneath us to allow our pilgrimage to be more steady, firm and free of failure. Through the emergence of our faith our path certainly becomes packed more firmly with His foundation of strength, perseverance and stability. Our path leads to eternal life with Him in Heaven and keeping our ankles strong in the Word will ensure our direct path free of detours.

All detours lead back down and the path of most resistance will grow us spiritually and broaden our faith to give us firm footing. Choose your path carefully so that you will not twist your ankle!
