God’s Providential Work In Our Life

Psalm 18:30–33

[30] This God—his way is perfect;

the word of the LORD proves true;

he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him.

 

[31] For who is God, but the LORD?

And who is a rock, except our God?—

[32] the God who equipped me with strength

and made my way blameless.

[33] He made my feet like the feet of a deer

and set me secure on the heights. (ESV)

 

Psalm 37:23–24

[23] The steps of a man are established by the LORD,

when he delights in his way;

[24] though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,

for the LORD upholds his hand. (ESV)

 

Psalms 37 in its entirety contrasts the providence of God at work in the lives of believers against the ultimate calamity and destruction that awaits non-believers.

Evil:

Righteous:

 

How is this done? The providence of God

What is the providence of God?

 

Psalms 37:23-24

Our steps

 

Directed/Established by the Lord

 

He delights in every detail of our life

Though we stumble we will not fall

 

Because the Lord holds us by the hand

What benefits are there in our lives as we believe and see that God, in His providence, is holding us by the hand at all times? (from Pastor Brad Bigney)

 

Psalms 32:7: You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.

 

2 Chronicles 16:9: For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.

 

Psalms 33:20-22: We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield.  In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.  May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.
