You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great. You enlarged my path under me, So my feet did not slip. – Ps. 18:35-36
Sometimes we may feel as though the rug is being pulled out from under our feet. This causes us to question where we stand. In those times, we wonder if we will slip and fall. Sorrow fills our heart; a sense of heaviness envelops our being, and we pray fervently for God to come to our rescue.
Time after time, God enlarges our path so we do not slip.This enlargement defies the tight place we may think we are in and makes way for God’s delivering power. He makes a way out of all troubling circumstances. We may almost slip and fall, almost give up, almost breakdown, yet God comes through with His amazing grace. The foundation on which we stand is strengthened and enlarged by the Christ we believe in—our sure foundation.
When we almost fall, Christ sustains us to the utmost. He upholds all with His right hand and He never permits the righteous to be moved. He delivers us out of all our afflictions. Let’s pray, believing He sustains us and gives us safety to stand every place we step, from glory to glory!
