Psalm 37:23-24 – “The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in Him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with His hand.“
It is better to know the Lord, and to be known by Him, for His promises never fail; it is wonderful to know that He dispenses over us His grace, mercy, favor and care. And for us to enjoy this, we need to “delight” in Him, to please Him greatly.
It is comforting and encouraging to know that the Lord will not let us fall: fall into sin, into darkness, into quicksand, into despair and everything that could destroy us and lead us away from His presence.
It is wonderful to know that He is always going to uphold us with His hand, that He will not only pick us up, but He will also lift us. It is amazing that “He will set our feet upon a rock and make our footsteps firm.” (Psalm 40:2).
The Lord establishes our ways, and our steps, He directs where we should go in the course of our life. He provided for us His Word – which is a lamp unto ‘our’ feet, and a light unto ‘our’ path.” (Psalm 119:105). He goes before us, He also goes behind us, He says to us ” This is the way, walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21).
So the Lord gives us all the tools we need to choose the right way of life. But in case we stumble, He will not let us fall, He will uphold us with His hand. Hallelujah!
