This verse tells me a few things:
- It tells me where my focus should be - on the Lord
- The Lord will preserve me - if my focus is on Him
- There are nets/traps/troubles beneath my feet
Thus life is not trouble free because your eyes are on the Lord, but He preserves you through the troubles.
This verse also shows me that my preservation comes from keeping my eyes on the Lord. If I keep my eyes on the problems those problems will consume me.
This verse also tells me, God has my problems under control. He will deal with them, He will prevent them from consuming me. In fact, He will use those problems to mature me, better me and use them to benefit me for His name's sake.
Rom 8 v 28: And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
My encouragement to you - keep your eyes on God and God alone.
