Psalm 37 has been on my mind for the past couple weeks. It's given me a piece as my world just seemed to be coming to a crashing halt. I was kicking myself, wondering what was going on, how could I be so dumb and hurling other insults in the mirror. I was stumbling and tripping all over myself. I thought, "Soon enough, I'm going to fall right on my face."
That's when I came across Psalm 37. Here's the golden nuggets I highlighted in my Bible-
Commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him and He will act. (Psalm 37:4-5)
The steps of a man are established by the ,The Message puts it in such a great way.
when he delights in his way;
though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
for the upholds his hand. (Psalm 37:23-24)
"If he stumbles, he’s not down for long;
God has a grip on his hand."
So he's got you. You are held up by someone who will not let go. I think of a child who's learning to ride a bike. A parent supports you until you get control but sometimes you stumble any way. Hopefully, the parent is there to pick you up, dust you off and get you back on your way.
But with God, hold on for the ride of your life.
