“Our steps are made firm by the Lord, when he delights in our way; though we stumble, we shall not fall headlong, for the Lord holds us by the hand.”
Psalms 37:23-24 NRSV
We often think that God doesn't hear our cries. We often feel that God is not helping us to get through these difficult times, but little do we know that our Lord is fighting our unforeseen battles for us. As we take a look at Psalms 37: 23-24, it explains to us how our God helps us and saves us during our tough times. The first line speaks on how God has planned each and every step that we are about to take which avoids us from falling and leads us closer to Him. The Lord also makes firm our steps for He loves us and doesn't want us to wander away from His presence.
‘Though he may stumble’ explains that our life will not always be smooth sailing. We will surely have trials and tribulations along the way. But, the next line in the verse then says ‘He will not fall for the Lord upholds him with his hand’. This means that no matter what kind of challenges that we are going through, God will never let us down for he will always lend his helping hand to help us overcome this difficult period.
No matter how challenging times may be, we should always put our hope on the Lord for He will always protect us as He promised to never let us down. There is nothing that could seem impossible to the one who created heaven and earth. The Lord could change our situation in a blink of an eye, but it would be our responsibility to always have faith in Him and never forget the promises that He has for us. We have to claim each promise that God has given to us and the first step that leads us to that is to trust that God will surely fulfill the promises that He has for us. We have to speak those promises on us, on our family and also on our nation. We should also start to apply those promises in our lives. As James 2:17 says that faith without work is dead. We as the children of God should obey his commandments and draw closer to him in order to see the Lord’s promises work in our lives.
So, the next time you feel helpless and discouraged, just surrender yourself to the Almighty for he will be by your side. He will guide each and every step that you take and keep you from falling. Even if you stumble under unseen circumstances, the Lord has promised that he will never let you fall for his hand will always uphold you. His love for you will never let you down. We should also know that each setback has its own silver lining because that is an opportunity for God to show us that we have to always depend on Him.
So, fear not for God will be with you in every step that you take, giving you the strength and courage to overcome these difficult times.
