The Promises of God: A 7-Day Devotional

Day 7 of 7 • This day’s reading


The way is slippery, and our feet are feeble. But the Lord will keep our feet. If we give ourselves up by obedient faith to be his holy ones, he will himself be our guardian. Not only will he charge his angels to keep us (Ps. 91:11), but he himself will preserve our ways (Ps. 121:8). 

He will keep our feet from falling, so that we do not defile our garments, wound our souls, and cause the enemy to blaspheme. 

He will keep our feet from wandering, so that we do not enter paths of error, or ways of folly, or routes of the world’s custom. 

He will keep our feet from swelling through weariness, or blistering because of the roughness and length of the way. 

He will keep our feet from wounding. Our shoes will be iron and brass, so that even though we tread on the edge of the sword, or on deadly serpents, we will not bleed or be poisoned. 

He will also pluck our feet out of the net. We will not be entangled by the deceit of our malicious and crafty foes. 

With such a promise as this, let us run without weariness and walk without fear. He who guards our feet will do so effectively.
