When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.You know the feeling that you get when you are about to fall? When can you feel there is no possibility of you catching yourself?
Now imagine at the last moment that God caught you. This is exactly what the Lord does to us: when we fall, when we sin, when we dishonor Him, He is there. He never leaves, he doesn’t ask for anything other than our love and faith. Live without fear, believe in Christ, for God shall always lift you up.Lord, you lift me up on eagles’ wings.
My own actions have led me to stumble and collapse under the weight of my own burdens, but You have always been there to carry me. Thank you, merciful God, for knowing what I need. Thank you, tender Father, for not giving up on me. Most of all, thank you, generous Lord, for sending Your only begotten son to die for me.

We want everything done easily these days. Things should be done quickly, easily, and painlessly. It is often too much to even ask for something, we expect it to just be handed to us. All that God asks of us is to ASK! How simple a task is that? Ask for eternal salvation. Ask to love and be loved by him. If we knock, the door will be opened.
I once had the pleasure of having dinner with an environmental scientist. I asked him how he got into that field, and he was a Christian who had fallen in love with God’s creation and wanted to dedicate his life to studying it.
We must have talked for more than an hour about preserving biodiversity. After dinner, I walked with him out to the parking lot to say goodbye. As he was unlocking his car, I said, “wait a minute, don’t you care about air pollution?” He replied, “Yes, of course, as a father I am particularly concerned about the effect it could have on my children and grandchildren.”
I had to point out, “But you are driving a diesel car!” This got him all in a huff and he started stumbling on about improved gas mileage. He knew there was a contradiction between his beliefs and the car he was driving, but somehow he has kept driving that diesel car as long as I have known him.
This conflict between belief and behavior isn’t at all unusual – in fact, we see it in God’s own people again and again. In Exodus 32, verses 1-5, the people ask Aaron to make an idol, as Moses has gone up the mountain to talk to God. Aaron gives in and makes a golden calf. But notice he doesn’t stop there. He builds an altar to God in front of the calf.
He tried to let the people worship both God and the calf at the same time! Of course, this didn’t sit well with God, as it contradicted worship of both Him and an idol.
All too often, we try to put some aspect of our lives on equal footing with God. Yes, we go to church and pray, but it really focused on getting ahead at work or on getting a date.
How do we square this with the fact that God demands that we put Him above all? The fact is, we can’t, and just as God wouldn’t like His altar being placed next to a golden calf, he also won’t tolerate us putting our own desires on the same level as His.
However, as the story of the golden calf This shows us, people are always looking for leadership. God has said, make me your leader! We know we must follow him, but sometimes, as we felt disconnected from God, we look for leadership in other places.
It’s important that we stay on track for God, and one way we do that is by surrounding ourselves with leaders who are dedicated to God’s path. Aaron did not stay on God’s path, but led God’s people astray when they asked him to.
When we choose our leaders, we must be sure that they will not make Aaron’s mistake — and that we will not make that mistake when people look to us for leadership. Prayer: Lord, we are constantly being tempted to stray away from your path.

The new city of Jerusalem serves as a metaphor for each and every one of us.
Outside of ourselves, there is a world full of sin (similar to outside the city of Jerusalem), and it is through our belief and trust in Christ that we are able to combat the temptations around us.
When I was younger, I found myself amongst the “dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie” (Revelation 22:15).
It takes great strength and faith in God to turn to him in times of uncertainty and avoid the persuasions of sin.
In the Book of Revelation 22:13-21, we find that God repeats His promise that He is “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” (Revelation 22:13).
These words are emphasized by appearing twice in the same passage. We should feel confident that God is all-powerful and that through Him, we can feel safe and free of temptation.
God is so good, and He saved you. He is also good and faithful to lead you, teach you, and show you His ways.
You must seek Him, though. Seek the LORD. Seek His face. Seek His truth, His way, and His path. If you pursue Him, He will show you. God doesn’t step back when you take a step forward. He is always there.
