10 Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God;
may your good Spirit
lead me on level ground. Psalm 143:10
Those who are runners understand the importance of running on level ground. If you get off the road, you run the risk of twisting an ankle because the ground is uneven. If you run on pavement the entire way, going up and going down hills are both challenging.
But the level path is where you can run and run and run without fear of twisting ankles, running out of “steam” going up, or tumbling head over heals going down. It’s steady and smooth. It’s predictable.
That is so appropriate to our walk with Christ, isn’t it? We crave stability and that solid even ground. We know the pitfalls of going on the trails but sometimes we get tired and forgets what’s out there.
Thank you, Lord, for leading us on level ground. Thank you for grounding us in Christ. Nudge us when we get off the “straight and narrow.” Give us sure footing for he road ahead.
