Homosexuality and the Christian THE OUTSIDER RENEW YOUR MIND

No Longer Walk as the Unbelievers Walk

Proverbs 3:23 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
23 Then you will walk on your way securely,
and your foot will not stumble.[13]

[13] Lit strike your foot

Then you will walk on your way securely: The Hebrew adverb then (ʾāz) expresses the relationship between verse 3:23 and all that had been conveyed and promised about wisdom in verses 3:21-22. The Hebrew verb walk (hā·lǎḵ) is expressing a life course that one will experience as a result of possessing the wisdom of God and the Hebrew noun securely (bě·ṭǎḥ) is telling us that as compared to those ignoring or rejecting the wisdom of God we will walk … securely. This is not saying that we will absolutely be free from danger or injury but rather, Solomon is saying far more so than those who lack wisdom.

WALK HUMBLY WITH YOUR GOD THE BATTLE FOR THE CHRISTIAN MIND (1)-1 WAITING ON GOD

Your foot will not stumble: 3:23b is repeating the idea expressed in 3:23a, in that, we will not stumble (nā·ḡǎp̄) in our walk with God if we possess and use our wisdom. The literal expression is “strike your foot.” (nā·ḡǎp̄) The same expression is also found in Psa. 91:12, where it goes on to say, “against a stone.” To stumble means to trip or momentarily lose one’s balance because they have struck their foot on something unexpectedly; almost fall while walking. In other words, in our life course of figuratively walking with God, we will not stumble over the same life difficulties as the unbeliever, i.e., making a moral false step or doing wrong. If we are to walk with God, we should no longer walk as the unbelievers walk. We want to walk with God, as he will lead us in the way we should walk, as he is “the only wise God.” (Rom. 16:27) We need to talk and walk with God as we listen to his voice through Scripture, as to which way we should go. (Psa. 119:101; 2 Pet. 1:19) The life course of understanding, knowledge, wisdom, and thinking ability is a life of security. Even though we possess these attributes of God, even if it is in abundance, we will also suffer at times as well, we will not stumble over sinful wrongdoing as is the case with the unbeliever.
