“If the LORD delights in a man's way, he makes his steps firm; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.” Psalm 37:23-29 NIV
God makes us aware of His presence. He speaks to our souls and leads us on a journey of faith. When we stumble and fall, He lifts us from the ditches of doubt and places HOPE in our hearts.
HOPE is a beautiful thing. It helps us continue to climb. It nurtures our decision to TRY when it’s difficult. It gives us courage to remember Christ is with us in EVERY step we take.
We all need to carry what needs to be held. But we must remember we DON’T have to carry burdens alone. Jesus WILL share the load. He will help us surrender what needs to be released so we can climb the mountains. The Bible says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” God will pull us from the valleys and give us STRENGTH to climb.
We don’t have to handle life on our own! God will help us discover the power of mercy and grace. He will help us witness the presence of His love. He will prepare us to keep on going and set our feet on solid ground. We must TRUST His ability to guide and provide. There will never be a day without Him. He will ALWAYS take care of us and those we love. “BELIEVE for it!”
Dear God, we’re so grateful to walk with You. Fill us with courage as we journey ahead. Help us faithfully remember You already know where we will arrive. Humble our hearts, so we will surrender the loads we bear and be ready to handle what’s to come. We will serve You with a heart of thanks and find HOPE in the arms of Your amazing love. We’re so grateful YOU carry us over the mountains. Thank you, Lord! Amen
