(Proverbs 28:18 KJV) Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.
This is a promise for me. I will be “delivered” (3467). Two confessions, or as they say in contracts, disclosures.
First, I am assuming that I am walking “uprightly" (8549). Not perfectly, but as the NASB says, "blamelessly” . Obviously it is possible. At least it is obvious to me. I see numerous demands for this type of life and examples. I see people referred to that live this way. In spite of what you may have heard, it is a doable goal.
Second, I concede that my struggles are with what we call “first world problems”. I am not facing starvation or warlords driving around shooting anyone who invades their safe space. I am not struggling with one of many forms of cancer. To most of the world I live in a bubble of surplus and security. I still struggle. It is the human way.
So? I have a promise. I need to be reminded of that promise. Maybe you do too. If so, be reminded.
