Everyday Promises – 142

WITH HIS HAND

The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. Psalm 37:23-24 NIV

Do you remember a time when you decided to let go of Dad’s hand and strike out on your own as a child, only to trip and do a face plant into the dirt? I know I saved my own kids, when they were small, from a few serious tumbles while we were out bushwalking, just by holding their hand. That is what God offers his children in this promise. A big, strong hand to hold and help us over the rough patches of life. He delights to make our way secure. If we ask our Heavenly Father to hold our hand every day it will spare us much sorrow, pain and regret. His heart aches for us when we do stumble and mess things up, but he will never forsake us. In love and mercy Jesus is willing to forgive us, enclose us in his arms and make our steps firm again for we are precious in his sight.
