My take: This passage is so intriguing. When, and if, we delight in God’s mysterious way; when we walk by faith and not by sight alone; when we use the Word as our flashlight in the dark world – then David assures us that God helps us. He sets us up for success His way. Yes, even then, we may stumble and fall, but like a parent guiding a child learning to walk the LORD Himself will care and help.
My prayer: God, it sure is a blessing to know You have my back. Help me maintain a good standing with Thee.
