The Promises of God:
"Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. The salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble" (Psalm 37:24, 39).
Here we see that although we may have fallen down in our walk through life - the Lord will not allow us to be CAST down - for He promises to uphold us by HIS hand! Our part then is to clasp the hand of God! His hand of Help is always extended to us - it's our choice to take it or leave it! I don't know about you but I'm taking it! The verse then goes on to add the HE is our strength in time of trouble! How many times have you ever thought or said, "oh, Lord give me strength"! Well, HE does! He's promised to and again we have the choice of taking it or leaving it! Let's choose to accept the great help of JEHOVAH!
