When I say, “My foot is slipping,”
your mercy, O Lord, sustains me;
When cares abound within me,
your comfort gladdens my soul. (Ps 94:18-19)
There are many reasons for us to feel overwhelmed, to feel that we are slipping. There are many reasons to call out to the Lord for His help.
There are probably just as many reasons why we fail to call for help in times of need. So often, in our arrogance, we feel that we will be able to take care of our problems on our own.
When we become too focused on ourselves, it becomes difficult to see the Lord in our midst. Of course, if we fail to see Him, we are not going to turn to Him in need.
There are many cares and concerns in our lives. There are many reasons to stumble and fall. There are many reasons to go astray.
At the same time, there is one cure: Jesus.
FAITH ACTION: Do you feel that you are slipping? Ask the Lord for His help today.
