Established Steps

Psalm 37:23, 24

The steps of a man are established

by the Lord,
When he delights in his way;
though he fall,
he shall not be cast headlong,
for the Lord upholds his hand.

This Psalm was written by David.

When you consider David's life
and this Psalm you see a man
who knew that his steps
were established by the Lord.

When the bad guys win,

remember God is in control and
he will uphold you by his hand.

When life doesn't go the way you expect,
trust in God.

Here is a very encouraging quote from The Gospel Primer by Milton Vincent that I have used many times.
The gospel enables me to embrace my tribulations and thereby position myself to gain full benefit from them. For the gospel is the one great permanent circumstance in which I live and move; and every hardship in my life is allowed by God only because it serves His gospel purposes in me. When I view my circumstances in this light, I realize that the gospel is not just one piece of good news that fits into my life somewhere among all the bad. I realize instead that the gospel makes genuinely good news out of every other aspect of my life, including my severest trials.
These truths are so very different than the world's thoughts.
