“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 (NIV)
Don’t equate failure in the Christian life with losing your salvation because you didn’t earn it in the first place. You may fall flat on your face, but just don’t stay there. Get up and grow forward. Stay in fellowship with your Lord Jesus and others who are also seeking to live a life in the grace of Christ, just remember that the next time you are down look up to your Savior and He will lend you His hand.
Don’t dwell on not stumbling, but firmly walking with the Lord. If all we think about, talk about, and worry about is keeping from failure we will surely and repeatably fail. Instead, delight in the Lord’s grace and walk one step at a time.
Let’s pray today that we will not give up on ourselves because our Lord has not given up on us.
