Discussion for Job 23:11

  • "My foot hath held his steps". It is interesting to note that the author stated, my foot holding the steps of God and not his feet holding the steps of God. What I feel the spirit of God is saying is that, along with walking, our feet also help us maintain physical balance of our bodies. Especially if we, the body of Christ, are pushed or stumble while walking along a path, the path God has ordained us to walk. When I realize that I am in trouble, because one of my feet is straying from God's chosen path, one foot stays firmly planted while the other foot is trying to help maintain balance until both feet are again firmly planted following the steps of God.
