The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand. —Psalm 37:23-4
God is not just a Creator, then walking away to do something else in the universe (as agnostics believe). He is deeply, not only interested, but engaged, with every detail of our life! Then, even when we make a mistake, even if it’s over and over, He is there, holding us so we never really fall away from Him. Just mess up. And, while He knows that it hurts us, it hurts others, and thus when we mess up it hurts God, He’s not looking for something to stab us when we’re wrong. No! Actually, that’s the Devil!
The Devil is so bad that he leads us into sin (i.e., when something is bad for us and others) and then kicks us when we’re down! He says, “Hey this is great, you’ll love it!” Then, after you do what he says, he comes back with, “You idiot! Why can’t you stop? You’re so weak!”
On the other hand, God is interested in every aspect of our lives. He wants to see happiness and improvement. God is Love. Loves cares.
By the way, this verse also reminds me of one of my favorite verses: Proverbs 16:9. The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
