PRAYER: Please pray for healing in our land. Healing in our hearts and minds.
DEVOTION: “They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.” – Psalm 91:12
The sentiment here is beautiful. These angels we were discussing in the last verse yesterday are holding us up. Caring for us so that our feet won’t even touch the ground and step on a stone.
When I was a kid , we used to have a gravel driveway. It was all stone and it was long. By the end of the summer the bottom of my feet would be like leather from walking on these stones for 3 months. I remember that when school first got out, I would walk barefoot on these stones and it would hurt like crazy! Then, gradually, as the summer days wore on and the frequency of walking on these stones increased, my feet would get more conditioned to the stones.
I would have loved to have had a few angels to carry me along back in those days. These guardians and protectors are carrying us over the stones in our lives right? Maybe Moses was speaking of literal stones but I think we can equate these stones to the trials and tribulations in our lives as well. These “stones” sometimes hurt more and are harder to get over, yet, we walk with God, and these angels, over them.
Today, what stones are you trying to avoid? What stones are in the way of a deeper relationship with God, your family, friends, co-workers?
Think about your stones and welcome the help from God and His angels as they carry each of us over them.
