"Make level paths for your feet, so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed." NIV
"And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed." KJV
Being humans, we are weak in some facet of our spiritual life. We have a tendency to get off the straight path and get into jagged rocks, thorns, and potholes that cause us injury and make us weak. Getting back on the straight path can be difficult depending on how far off and how long we were off the straight path. The Lord will guide us back if we confess and repent. Then our spiritual injuries will heal as we keep walking on His straight path.
Heavenly Father, we know You are so aware of our frailties as humans and that we wander off the path at times. We ask for your grace and mercy to stay on the path, but when we get off of it, we need Your love and grace to draw us back so that we can heal and continue on maturing and becoming more like You. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
