Psalm 37:23-24 ” 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.”

It’s not if I’m going to stumble, but when will I trip up, blurt out a blundering comment, or fall short of what God desires of me. The sad truth is I stumble daily…all my good intentions going out the window as I come up short time and time again. So that’s why this Scripture gives me such hope today. For even though I may not be able to stand firm in myself, the Lord will keep my feet from slipping…He will guide and protect me with the certianity that He is directing my path, and He will strengthen and sustain me on the journey. For He is compassionate towards the weak…restoring the erring ways of those who wander. And every time I come back to the Lord again asking forgiveness, I can rest in His merciful kindness, knowing my ultimate recourse is to, “Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.” (Psalm 55:22)
