Every believing man, who loves God and who is faithful to Him, is a good man in the sight of God.
The Bible tells us that:
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. (Psalms 37: 23-24)
It means God makes His loved ones stronger, firmer, more secure, more stable on the path of life.
In fact, God rejoices to see His faithful steadfast. He loves to see His faithful who do not stumble.
When a child learns to walk, his parents are happy. When we walk steadily in the ways of God, God is happy.
That’s why He would not want to see the good man fall. And when he happens to fall, God raises him.
« If he falls, he is not overthrown, for the LORD sustains his hand if he falls. »
We all fall one day or another. James writes: « We all stumble
in many ways » (James 3: 2).
Ecclesiastes tells us: « Surely there is not on the earth a righteous man who does good and does not sin. » (Ecclesiastes 7:20).
But we would never want to fall again spiritually, we would not want to sin again; but we all fall.
We do not always fall; but sometimes we fall.
But the falling Christian does not stay on the ground! « He is not overwhelmed ».
It means he does not stay on the ground, lying down, lying down, broken, undone.
Because « God uphold Hum with his hand ».
Left to ourselves, we would perish all eternally. But thanks to the Lord, our falls are never final and complete.
A child of God who
grave remains a child of God.
Micah says: « Do not rejoice about me, my enemy!Because if I fall, I get up. » (Micah 7: 8).
God preserve us from any fall of which we could not get up (Jude 24).
No Christian will fall irretrievably, fatally, finally, to the point of returning to a state of non-forgiveness, non-justification. God does not allow one of His beloved to fall outside the path of forgiveness and justification.
Lord our God, give us to always remain faithful to you.
It is in the precious name of your son Jesus Christ that we pray.
