‘The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. ‘
Psalm 37:23-24 https://www.bible.com/bible/111/PSA.37.23-24
Until recently, I have always felt like I was just falling into a black hole we call life. The therapist I saw when I was 18 just called it depression. Either way, I felt like I was drowning in sorrow that I did not understand. The therapists one day told me I was cured, but I was not. I was still angsty, even though I was no longer a teenager.
I’ve already spoken about what I thought my problem was, but it was because I did not have a relationship with the God I said I worshipped. In 2015, when I began to delight in God, up until now, when I am angry or extremely sad, I stop and talk to God about what I am feeling. He does not always immediately give me an answer, but the presence of the Holy Spirit comforts me. It warms me and somehow, I am quieted.
I do not know where you are in your life right now. You could be on cloud 9 or could feel like you are falling into a pit of despair. What I do know is when you fall, and you will, and if you are currently falling, you aren’t. You are just stumbling, and God is holding you up. His love for you will not fail you. It starts again at the ‘delight in him’.
Delight in Him and you will not fall. Allow the Holy Spirit to calm the raging storm within you. Pray this with me.
Lord when I delight in You, You make firm my steps. I may stumble but I will not fall because I have You. You are holding me up with Your hand. Father there will be times when I do not remember this, nudge me, so that as I am falling I cry out to You, knowing with confidence You will hold me because I am Your child.
In Yeshua’s (Jesus) Name I Pray, Amen.
