“The Lord will be your confidence and keep your foot from being caught.” Proverbs 3:26
In the movies, during an action sequence, there is a go to moment that helps heighten the excitement. The woman in high heels. Running across train tracks… her heel gets caught. Running along a pier… her heel gets caught between the planks. Running across the street… caught in a manhole lid. Running down the sidewalk… caught in a great or crack.
I’ve never been running for my life, but I have gotten my heel caught. Once, at a bridal shower, my heel got caught multiple times. At the hostess’ home there was a beautiful deck and my heel kept getting caught in between the wood planks. The first time, I laughed it off. The second time, I almost dropped my plate. The third time, it brought me to a sudden stop and I almost created a three woman pile up. I was embarrassed that I kept allowing this to happen. I could have paid more attention where I stepped.
In life, there are a lot of times where I could stand to pay a bit more attention to what is happening around me. Perhaps I could have been a bit wiser, or exercised a bit more caution. I could have learned from my mistakes, instead of repeating them. When others shared their wisdom with me, I could have heeded their warnings instead of digging in my heels and thinking I could do things my own way.
As a believer, I can learn a lot of practical wisdom in the pages of the Scriptures. The more I commit myself to the Lord, dig into the Scriptures to understand His character, and dedicate myself to following His commands the more I walk in confidence, God Confidence. I am confident in who He is, I am confident in His promises, I am confident in His direction. When I am walking with God Confidence, I don’t have to worry about my heel getting caught.
