God is there for you when you stumble

God is there to pick you up when you stumble.


224. God is there to pick you up when you stumble and assist us when we have need: God is more than just a kind benevolent creator. He is also, our shield and protector when we are in need, and is there, with us, when we slip up or make a mistake, to help us back unto the right path and pick us up and support us, if need be, when things seem to go wrong and we feel we have no where to turn. He is our Heavenly Father, and He, and His heavenly host, is with us, in every direction we choose to travel, giving us assistance, loving us, and trying to help guide us along through this obstacle course we call life. Jewish symbols star-8pix Judaism: Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness.” Judith 9:11 “Thou art a God of the afflicted, an Helper of the oppressed, an Upholder of the weak, a Protector of the forlorn, a Saviour of them that are without hope.” (Deuterocanonical Apocrypha)  Wisdom 19:22 “For in all things, O Lord, Thou didst magnify Thy people, and glorify them, neither didst Thou lightly regard them: but didst assist them in every time and place.” (Deuterocanonical Apocrypha) 1 Esdras “For we had said unto the king, that the power of the Lord our God should be with them that seek Him, to support them in all ways.” (Deuterocanonical Apocrypha) Psalms 37:17 “For, The LORD upholdeth the righteous.” Psalms 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by The LORD: and he delighteth in His way.” Psalms 37:24 “Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for The LORD upholdeth him with His hand.” David tells us that if a man falls or sins against God, God won’t totally abandon him, but will, out of His love and compassion, assist him to do better.
