(KJV.) PSALM 37:23-24
(24) Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
JESUS IS OUR ANCHOR, FEAR NOT!
(24) Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. Brethren, if we believe in our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior; at times, the enemy will pester with our souls and troubles will come our ways; when troubles comes our ways, though we may stumble or miss steps, we will not be thrown down entirely; our Father will support and defend our souls from all attacks of the enemy, and keep our souls from sinking into deeper sufferings, and uplift our spirits back from being downcast; to maintain our lives in good health and take proper care of us; when we trust and believe him with all our mind, souls and bodies. At times, regardless of how secured we are in him; momentarily, things will go wrong, let us know that these are sudden bumps of life; however bad or ugly they maybe, we have to endure through them all, and trust our Father, while we suffer agonies and pains from our bumps; if we are saved children of the most high Father; there is nothing that happens in our lives that he does not know about; he knows about all our troubles, we may asked ourselves sometimes; "why are we suffering then?" friends, we suffer for various reasons, known to our Father and for his purposes; there are always, reasons behind sufferings; such as, (i) sufferings for righteousness sake, that is sufferings for our Father's own purposes, we have to go through the wilderness, be tried and make certain for his glorification; (ii) sufferings for disobedience to his words, instructions, and directions on what we need to do for his glorification; (iii) sufferings from enemies of righteousness, those who hate our believes in Jesus Christ, and would want to frustrate, derail our souls, from fulfilling our destines in the faith of his righteousness; sufferings at times to points of dead, in our Father's perspective, that is perfectly alright; for, Jesus Christ suffered, died and resurrected to set humanity free from all iniquities; therefore, when believers are being slain for righteousness sake, their souls are being gratified in heavenly places forevermore.
However, let us know that sufferings are temporary situations, seasonal and meant for our own good; however, our Father does not allow too much sufferings that we cannot bear, and backslide from the faith of his righteousness; therefore, he places redemptive days ahead of our sufferings, when he will relieve our souls from sufferings and we will give him praises and adoration forever; therefore, if we asked ourselves that question today, that is a good question; and we have rights, as children of our Father, to question him, sometimes, if we do not understand his mysterious ways in our lives; however, when we question him, questioning him does not necessary mean that he will answer or explain himself why things are going negatively against our souls, our Father does not owe anyone explanation for his actions or what he does with his own creation; however, everything he does, or allows the enemy to do unto his children; he turns all things around for our own good; to bring us back in alignment with his purposes and to manifest his divinely purposes in our lives, and for glorification of his Holy Name on planet earth, and for benefits of humanity; therefore, if we walk in faith, in his righteousness but are in troubles today; let us have patience and trust him, pray without ceasing, read and believe his words, praise and thank him, and wait for his hand of victory to prevail against all odds and pacify our souls with earthly and heavenly blessings forevermore.
