Day 20

Grace Day

from the Genesis reading plan

Psalm 37:23-24

BY She Reads Truth

Use this day to pray, rest, and reflect on this week’s reading, giving thanks for the grace that is ours in Christ.

A person’s steps are established by the LORD,
and he takes pleasure in his way.
Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed,
because the LORD supports him with his hand.
Psalm 37:23–24

    The Lord supports me with His hand. This is where I want to be. In His hands. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I cannot do this life without my Jesus. He keeps on loving me even when I messed up. I pray this for my kids that they will continue to walk with Jesus.

    Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for Your loving support that directs my steps and rights me when I stumble off Your path! Mighty Lord, may I be Your hands and feet today.

    Our daughter dressed Jenna, age 2, in a warm snow suit along with hat, mittens and boots. She took her outside to play in the freshly fallen snow. The sweet babe promptly stumbled, tipped over and couldn’t get up. All that added bulk was too much for Jenna to bear and she couldn’t get herself upright. Momma to the rescue! In a matter of seconds, Jenna was back on her feet to try again.

    We are often the same. We let others’ comments and expectations weigh us down. We let unforgiveness and bitterness affect our balance. We stumble and fall. We’re on our backs, flailing. But God! Our heavenly Father rescues us. He lifts us up and sets our feet back on the right path. He dusts us off, cups our face in His hands and calls us His beloved. He reminds us to give our burdens to Him. He reminds us that He speaks Truth and we are the apple of His eye. He cares not what other mere humans think of us. He wants to lighten our load by carrying it for us. He is able. Let us hand over to Him all that weighs us down. Let us release what we were never meant to clutch. Let us walk confidently in the joy of the Lord. Let us be Light-hearted.

      Perfect analogy of all that we try to carry that God never asked us to! We allow others to pile on us or we even pick up weight willingly and then wonder why we are out of balance…because we aren’t walking in the way God called us to but stumbling in the worlds ways!

      Just studied Hebrews 12:1 and the verse that tells us to THROW OFF everything that hinders us and the sin that entangles us so that we can RUN the race set before us, a perfect pairing with this Scripture and your analogy! If we want to run the race Jesus mapped out for us we must first be unencumbered!

    So good. Too often I revert back to my old way of thinking I am alone without help. This verse is such a powerful reminder for me that in this time of isolation I am not alone. He is always with me ready to shower me with love, grace, and help. Glory and thanks go to Him!! I know that I am not okay but Jesus is!!
