Psalm 36. “Foot or Hand?” Wednesday January 11, 2017, 7pm

Facing the evil of his day, David prayed that his pride, would not cause his foot to stumble, or the hand of his enemies to lead him astray and remove him from you O Lord.
Pride of a Christian, is a very deadly enemy, and can cause us to not realize, that all we are, and own, is the result of GOD’s work and not of ourselves. Pride can create a self-image, that will take away our humble walk with GOD. Pr 16:18 ¶ Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Mic 6:8 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

We can look at others, and think that we are a very good person, and are proud that we do not do, what some others do. However, if we compare ourselves with the glory of GOD, we will see how short, we are of the glory of GOD, and that should help us return to that humble walk with GOD. 1Jo 1:8 ¶ If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

Evil is flooding our lives with how to love a sinners’ sin and they want to take our hand and lead us astray. They call us narrow minded if we do not go along with them. Which in fact, we should be, as Jesus tell us; Mt 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
The wicked have no fear of GOD, which comes from the heart of the wicked, and they are difficult to persuade. As a matter of fact, most become belligerent and the Bible tells us what to do if they act that way toward our attempt to rescue them from themselves. Pr 9:8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
a. The wicked has left off to be wise and to do good. 1-4
b. Mercy, righteousness, is forever with those who trust our GOD. 5-9
c. Let not the prideful foot, or wicked hand cause us to stumble. 10-11
GOD bless you with his grace and peace multiplied
