If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm, though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with His hand. Psalm 37:23
During the weekend Cath and I were out working at Eagles Rest doing maintenance on some of the buildings, so the place is prepared for when we can host people again to benefit from the beauty of God’s blessings and creation out there.
When walking back down the hill with Leita after she had come up to help with one of the tasks, she was finding the slope and uneven ground difficult to walk on and reached out for my hand to help her. Once I took her hand she was able to walk with confidence down the slope.
God has promised to be there for us during the difficult times, he is there with His hand out however we need to be humble enough to realise that we cannot do it on our own and need His help. Peter found this out when he hopped out of the boat and began to sink in the water. Jesus held out HIs hand to help Peter, Peter had to be willing to realise he was out of his depth and reach up and grab Jesus hand to be helped. (Matthew 14:29-31)
If you feel you are stumbling at this time, look at your hands and check out where they are.
