every detail

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand (Psalm 37:23-24).

This just really hit me today.  To know that God delights in every detail of our lives!  I guess it makes you think about the things you’re doing with your life…how you spend every moment, what you do in those moments.  Is Jesus a part of them?  Can he be?  I think if we believe really believed that Jesus actually delights…read it…delights…. in every detail…we would live differently, make different choices.  Wow, Jesus…

This is an acrostic poem of every letter in the Hebrew alphabet.  Somehow everytime I read these type of Psalms, I get hit.  It’s awesome. 

In light of the text I talked about on Sunday night, verse 24 hits me as well.  Though we stumble… and yes, we will… we will never fall!  Why?  Because “the Lord holds them by the hand.”  Think about that!  He delights in every detail and he holds our hand.  Makes you think about being a child and giving up control of your life, doesn’t it? 

Jesus, you’re cool.
