“If the LORD delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.” Psalm 37:23-24
I don’t know about you, but I’ve stumbled my way through much of life. I’ve tripped at some of the most embarrassing moments. I’ve stumbled over my own feet, shoelaces, curbs, and just pure air.
However, I am confident that in my spiritual life, even though I have stumbled from time to time, God has not let me completely fall.
When I think I’m going to plunge into the depths of the abyss, the Father’s love, care, concern, Scriptures, servants, and helpers have kept me from destruction. God’s hand does uphold me.
He is there in times of trial. He has been mighty to save. I do believe that he delights in my journey. How about you?
O Father, thank you for your steadying influence in my life. Thank you for lifting me when I have been down, protecting me when I have been vulnerable, and comforting me when I have been broken.
I praise you for your grace, your glory, and your nearness. Through Jesus, I offer you my praise and eternal appreciation. Amen.
