Psalm 94:18,19 “When I said, "My foot is slipping", your love, O Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.”
Living in Canada in the winter I have experienced walking along minding my own business when suddenly I slipped on "black ice". It is a horrid feeling. My first reaction is to try to steady myself and catch my balance. The scary thing is the feeling that I have lost control. I know the only thing that can happen if I don't succeed in regaining my balance is gravity has its way and I fall. Of course I also realize that this is going to hurt!
The same situation can happen in life in a variety of scenarios. But Psalm 121:3 says: “He will not allow your foot to slip.” Here in our verse the psalmist tells us that it is God’s love that supports us. Even when we feel like we are slipping and loosing our footing the Lord uphold us.
Jesus is well acquainted with our humanness and the fear that can over take us. He says don't let your hearts be troubled, cast all your cares on me. He spoke to the storms and brought peace just by speaking a person’s name. Anxiety is a real feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome. It's the uncertain outcome that leaves us in that state of feeling out of control, like you are loosing your footing or slipping.
Gods is faithful and his love is unending. His love covers all, conquers all and it cures all. Love never fails and you don't have to earn it. That is what supports us and brings joy to our souls. He will not allow your foot to slip! We can rest in the fact that he is in control, supporting and holding us.
Prayer: “Father I thank you that you support me and give me peace. I ask you to come right in the midst of that circumstances of my life and pour your love into my being. I thank you for the peace that passes all understanding and your love that never fails.”
