My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Today the special word for you is taken from the book of Proverbs 3:26, “For the Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, God says, to you that the Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your feet from being caught. This indicates that many of you are caught up in some kind of issues that causes trouble and distress. Knowingly or unknowingly you have been hooked in some unwanted affairs and therefore you are struggling not knowing how to come out of your horrible situation. Your feet have got caught in a harmful environment. Some will say, “My son has got into a matter without knowing the depth of it and has incurred great loss. There are some who will say well not knowing what sort of a boy he is my daughter has got trapped by him. She has put her feet into his hold and now she is not able to get out of his hold. There are still some who will say, well without knowing the difficulties involved in this matter I got caught into it. So the Lord looks at such people and says, that God will be their confidence and He will remove their feet from such dangerous situations. He is bringing you out and fixing you in your original state of life.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, many of you have fallen in a state of difficulty because of your own ignorance. Once your feet gets caught in some affair then it is very difficult for you to come out of it. So before getting into it, we should be a bit more alert. In case someone accidently falls into a pool and if he knows swimming then he can slowly come out of the pool. But in case he gets caught into the clay soil that is deep inside the pool then his body gets caught into the wet soil and he will ever be able to come out of the pool so easily. He could only struggle with his feet but both his hands and almost the portion of his body would be immersed into the clay soil. In this case it would be very difficult to come out of the pool. There is a chance for him to die also. Unless and until someone gets into the pool and drags him out of the slushy water he cannot save himself. My dear children of God you should never get into such a situation at any point of time, and thereby endanger your life.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Your feet are very important. You should know where to place your feet. That is why the word of God says, Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. That is why you ought to be careful while you walk in the darkness. You should not go in the dark and fall anywhere. Though it looks as if there is light, you should not get into the dark areas and be trapped in unwanted issues. You need to hold on to the word of God, every step you take. As it will be a light for you in the dark. The word will tell you exactly whether you can place your feet there or not. The Word of God is a lamp to your feet and a light unto your path. You should walk as children of light. Learn to walk according to the direction that God shows to you rather than taking your own steps. And you should have the faith in the Lord that He will lift you up. God bless you.
Prayer: Lord, we thank You. Lord you have said, “I will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught.”Thank you Lord for your promise. According to this promise I pray that You will help the children to trust in you and place their confidence in You that You will lift them up and save from their dejected state of life. May they give up all their trust and faith in their personal talents, their own strength and knowledge, and trust in God for their survival. Help them to seek the help of God. For such kind of children I pray that you redeem them from all their sinful life and save them from their difficult situation. Lord they are unable to come out of their horrible condition as they are entangled in huge debts. Release them and bring them out of all their struggles that they go through. Help them to come out of their shameful situations. Cause them to rescue themselves from all kinds of court cases into which they are caught up with. Help them to come out of all their hurdles and may they lead a normal and carefree life in this world.
In Jesus Name We Pray.
