Much of life is hard; we are walking on slippery places. We can’t cope with life on our own and we are often in danger of falling. We need someone reliable to hang on to. The psalmist tells us, ‘My foot is slipping….. Oh Lord support me.’
I have recently had a spell of giddiness. Without the reluctant use of a stick I would have fallen which is the last thing any of us want to do. Recovery from a fall takes time. Recovery from a spiritual fall is also difficult.. When God stops us from falling He becomes our reliable Rock. Again the psalmist tells us ‘ The Lord has become my Fortress and my God my Rock in whom I take refugee.’.
