every move you make, every step you take #dailysoulfood


"Mark well that G-d doesn't miss a move you make; He's aware of every step you take" - Proverbs 5:21 MSG

This verse is very comforting to me. Though the rest of the chapter in Proverbs 5 talks about God knowing our sin, even the secret lusts of our hearts, this verse rings loud in my soul right now. 

If God doesn't miss our sins, then it means He doesn't miss the very things we do out of the good intentions of our hearts either. It means He doesn't miss it when we choose to forgive people that have hurt us. It means He doesn't miss it when we choose to turn the other cheek, even if we want so badly to retaliate to others who have done us wrong. It means He doesn't miss it when we give to others, even if it means sacrificing our own happiness. It means He doesn't miss the prayers we pray, the encouragement we sow, the finances we give. It means He doesn't miss our tears, our cries, and our sighs, even when we think He is far away.

Daily Soul Food: He is a God who sees all and knows all. Even if you feel alone. Even if you feel down in the dumps and can find no encouragement in circumstances and in man, know that you serve a God who sees all and knows all and He is aware of every step you take. He will be faithful to lead you in a way everlasting. (Psalm 139:24)
