When your life has shown through experience Gods hands have always been there. In your day to day activity God shows you if you pay attention that he still has his hands on you. That each step that you take leads you in the direction needed. Damage is done when one begins to take matters into their own hands. Going against the grain. Cheating, lying, stealing. All encouraged by the enemy. If we do fall off of the proverbial wagon God gives us encouragement. That through Jesus Christ our sins are forgiven. We have to come to him. Ask for forgiveness.
Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in my ways and keep my charge, then you shall rule my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you the right of access among those who are standing here.
