This weeks lesson is:
God's Treasure Chest (Finding Golden Nuggets in the Bible part 27)
The Golden Nugget is…
Proverbs 4:12 “When thou goest thy steps shall not be straitened and when thou runnest thou shalt not stumble.”
This verse is so amazing in different ways! First off, do you know what it talks about when it says, “…thy steps shall not be straitened”?
This word straitened means: confine, hinder, restrict, to put into difficulties (especially financial).
Stumble means: to strike your foot against something, slip, stagger, hesitate, tilt, or wobble.
Every time I read the Bible and come across a word I don’t quite understand or I think I know what it means, but want a greater understanding on it, I mark the word in my Bible and I can go back to it and look it up to find out what it means.
Before I looked of the word straitened, every time I read this verse I always stopped and wondered what this word straitened really meant. When I finally looked it up, I also decided to look up the word stumble to see what it said.
I was so glad when I finally decided to take the time to look up these words. Often times I would use this verse for stumbling, because I knew what that meant. “When thou runnest thou shalt not stumble.” I had some trouble stumbling, especially if I started running and trip over my feet or my feet caught in the grass or something would get me off balance and I would stumble and fall.
Especially in baseball or softball, I would hit the ball and go to run and %50 of the time stumble trying to get to the base. Sometimes in the outfield when going after a ball that would happen too!
When I found this verse I started using it right away, but now I can use it more powerfully because I can use it better now that I took the time to look up the words.
Now it helps even more, not just for running but also for our spiritual walk with the Lord. If we are reading the Bible, going to church, and doing the things of the Lord, it says, “when we go our steps shall not be straitened (confine, hinder, restrict or put into difficulties especially financial) and when thou runnest thou shalt not stumble (strike your foot against something, slip, stagger, hesitate, tilt, wobble)”
The devil likes to throw difficulties our way to hinder us from reading the Bible, or hinder us from going to church. The devil likes to try and make us stumble spiritually (sin) and make us feel like it isn’t worth being a Christian because of sin. That is why we have the power of forgiveness!
When we do something wrong we ask for forgiveness and God forgives us!
Satan also likes to try and make us feel constricted in our finances so we might make the choice to Not Give in the offerings at church.
This Verse tells us that when we are serving the Lord our steps we take will not have financial difficulties! God will supply everything we have need of!
That is why we have God’s Word the Bible, to tell us these things so we can trust in the Lord in everything we do.
We have this verse here to back it up: Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
God will take care of us! So you see these verses are not only for physical needs but also to help us spiritually so we can continue to walk with the Lord. We need to push through those obstacles that the devil likes to throw at us by using the Word of God. It is just like when the football players on the offence push against that line of players on the defense so the runner can go through to the touch down!
We need to push through the devil to run the touch down to heaven!
Here is that verse again, “Proverbs 4:12 “When thou goest thy steps shall not be straitened and when thou runnest thou shalt not stumble.”
See you next week! Love Noelle
