Sometimes life is full of bumps in the road. Sometimes it is full of surprises. And sometimes there is sadness, all clumped together with joy. Life changes. Things change.
One thing that never changes though is our Lord’s faithfulness. He is there to lift you up when you are down and, if you allow it, to give you peace, no matter what the situation. A part of Psalm 145 says
“The Lord upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.” I can attest to that. What about you? We all fall down at some point. But He is faithful! He will lift you up. Fall on Jesus.
In His light,
Relying on His Faithfulness
The Daniel Plan
Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness. —Psalm 86:11
It’s hard sometimes to find rest for our souls. We may hit a season with tremendous challenges in it, and our hearts are naturally troubled. Yet God promises us a peace beyond our circumstances.
In Psalm 145 the psalmist says, “The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does. The Lord upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. . . . The Lord is near to all who call on him. . . . The Lord watches over all who love him” (vv. 13-14, 18, 20).
He’s faithful no matter what our circumstances are, no matter the depths of our struggles.
Who doesn’t fall down? We all do. There’s nothing to be ashamed about. Falling down is being human. The Lord will help us stand up again if we draw near to him. He promises that he’s faithful.
Food for Thought: In the tender seasons of our lives, God is always faithful to us.
