“The Lord will guard the feet of His faithful servants…” (I Samuel 2:9).
If we are truly children of the Most High God and want to see His very best for us come to pass in our lives, we should watch where we go.
We should not be found in those places where the rest of this passage of scripture says, “the wicked in dark places shall be silenced.” Where are the dark places? Any place where we “think” we should hide or be “undercover agents” is a dark place and that is not just to be taken literally. No, we should not be hanging out at the bars, the dope houses or the whore houses or anywhere else where our beliefs come under question. We cannot “say”, “I’m a blood-bought, bible-toting, tongue-talking, holy ghost-filled Christian, and then “do” everything that every one else is doing (in the dark). “The eyes of the Lord are in every place, beholding the good and the evil.”
When we are where we are supposed to be, God has our backs. When we dare to dwell in dark places–and that includes dark places in our thought life–we are on our own and the “works of darkness,” set us up for judgment and for God to silence us!
My brothers and sisters, walk in the light, and be assured of God’s protection!
