Where to Next
March 23, 2021
We read Psalm 37:23 yesterday where the Lord tells us to rejoice for the steps of a good man are ordered by God. Then look at what Verse 24 has to say about this good man:
Psalm 37:24 KJV
24 "Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand."
"Though he fall." Have you ever fallen? It seems to me that after my greatest victory comes my greater defeat. I’m not sure who this is that wrote this comment about this scripture, but I can relate to it:
"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."
I could not have said that any better so please receive this with a grateful heart, and let the Lord lift you back upon your feet. The Lord has us in His right hand. So where to next?
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
