The LORD Upholds His Hand

Psalms 35:1-38:22

“The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when He delights in his way; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand.” Psalms 37:23-24

I remember when my kids were learning to walk how often they fell. I would hold their hand so that when they fell they wouldn’t hit their head or their face. That’s the picture that I get from this scripture. Though we fall… and we certainly do, we won’t go flying headlong into the pavement because the LORD is with us. He will not let us continue down a path that leads to our own destruction. He loves us too much to allow us to do that. He is faithful to us, especially when we’re not faithful to Him.

Isn’t it so great to know that even when we fall, we’re not fallen?

    I think you had a typo—“you hold your children’s hand so when they fall they would hit their head or their face?”

    did you mean so they    WOULD NOT hit their head or their face?
