So That  I May Walk  Before God

We will  never be able  to express  the wonders  of being able  to  “walk before God”.     Even though  King David experienced all sorts  of dangers  from evil people  on this earth,  he kept his trust  in the LORD.     In Psalm 56,  David described  how his enemies distorted his words,  planned all sorts of evils against him,  and proudly fought against him.

In spite  of all the constant hatred  against him,  David  praised God’s word,  and trusted  in God’s promise  to help all those  who put their faith  in the LORD.     In Psalm 56:13,  David wrote,

For You  have delivered  my soul  from death,
Indeed  my feet  from stumbling,
So that I may walk  before God
In the light  of the living.

David died  a natural death,  but many  of God’s faithful followers  have been killed  for their faith.     David  is not talking  about being delivered  from an earthly  “death”.     David said,  “You have delivered  my soul  from death”.     That means David knows  his  “soul”  will live eternally  in heaven.     Even if David  would have been killed  on earth,  his  “soul” was sure  to go to heaven,  because he trusted  in the LORD.     All those  who refuse  to believe  in the LORD  will suffer  eternal  “death” as they go  to hell.

That’s a huge difference.

Then David said the LORD  “delivered”  his  “feet  from stumbling”.     He is referring  to a spiritual  “stumbling”  into unbelief  and sins  of all sorts.     Because David remained close  to God  in love,  praise,  prayer,  and worship,  God remained close  to him.     David was fully aware  that God  was keeping him safe  in the true faith.     He knew that because  he made it a practice  to meditate  on God’s words,  learn from them,  and apply them  to his life.

God was keeping David safe  so that I may walk before God  in the light  of the living”.     “The living” are all God’s faithful  in heaven.      God does the same  for us  as we remain close  to Him.

Glad for God’s sustaining love,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for Your deliverances.”

Love,
Margaret
