O FALLING! NO BOWING DOWN!
The Lord upholds all those who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.
There is a concerted effort by the enemy of our souls and his agents to drag and pull God’s children down. These agents of evil and iniquity create or manipulate situations to make us fall and try to trap us unaware. They complicate our situations to see to it that we fall and do not rise up again. Sometimes the enemy pushes us fast forward in our walk and make us trip down. At other times, he will pull us backward and make us drowsy so that we might fall. The world around would expect us to fall flat on our faces so that they can try to prove that our kind of faith is a failure. But the Lord would not allow His children to fall forever and are forgotten. He is with us to uphold us lest we fall. His hands are all around us to hold us firm. Our feet are on the Rock so that we would not be shaken. There are times when we loose hope when the mighty wind of destruction blows on us. But we must understand that the Lord is with us on the canoe in which we travel through this troubled sea of life in the turmoil of the ocean of the world. He even walks on the rough waters to come near us to quench our fears. The enemy might be preparing to celebrate our fall and might expect us to sink deep into the ocean. But Heaven will not allow it because Heaven has something precious at stake if we sink. The Lord has purchased us as His precious possession by His life on the cross of Calvary and He will not allow us to fall and get lost. The storms and the slippery places that we pass through are known to the Lord as He has gone through every trial or test that is known to man. He will give us the strength to go through the difficult places, to come out stronger. He will hold us by encompassing around us with His mercy. If we are bowed or bent down because of the heavy burden on our shoulders or back, He will help us to carry the burden. He will straighten our bowed backs and help us to lift our heads to look unto Him and get strength to keep going and keep holding on to Him.
Palms 18:35 – You give me Your shield of victory, and Your right hand sustains me; You stoop down to make me great.
