When I said: My foot slips, Your mercy, O Lord, sustained me. Psalm 94:18
No matter the hardship, God always gives us something to sustain us.
It’s easy to say, “Praise God. When you are suffering: praise. When you are being tested: praise. If you have tears in your eyes: praise.” But it’s harder to do.
Our human nature often makes us forget the key advantages of being in a personal relationship with God. We can spend time with Him, speak and adore Him. We can hear from Him and receive new strength and insight about our situation. The advantage of being in relationship with God is that when we think “I’m about to fall”, our God rises with mercy and sustains us.
- strengthen or support physically or mentally; steady, succor, support;
- uphold, affirm, or confirm the justice or validity of.
When we feel that our feet are slipping, it is challenging to take this attitude. The enemy does a good job at times in ministering, fear and worry into our hearts. But the mercy of God will sustain us.
God will not allow us to slip, because we are not of those who recede, He has made us more than conquerors in Him. Do not fear, do not faint, do not give up, GOD IS WITH YOU.
Dear Lord, thank for allowing us to find refuge and strength in you. Help us to stand firm and walk forward boldly. Affirm our steps Lord and remove anything that may cause us to slip. Remind us that we are not alone and your mercy is always there to support us. You go before us, stand behind us and in you we shall be forever victorious. Thank You Lord. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!
