Psalm 145:14 ” The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.”

This verse essentially tells us that the Lord is compassionate towards the weak and restores the erring. The fixed expression for poverty in the Old Testament was, poor and needy, but figuratively poor and needy was also used to express total dependance on God. Throughout the Bible we can see that God gives special attention to the cries of the oppressed…strengthening, sustaining, and protecting them as I Samuel 2:8 says, “He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap.” But the Lord is just as compassionate to those who are going down the wrong path, those bowed down with the weight of sin in their life. The Lord wants to lift those burdens and restore us back to a right standing with Him.
