Sustains, Lifts, Delivers
The LORD sustains all who fall
And raises up all who are bowed down. Psalm 145:14
The LORD helps the fallen
and lifts those bent beneath their loads. NLT
The LORD upholds all who fall,
And raises up all who are bowed down. NKJV
to sustain, refresh, revive
to raise up, to comfort the afflicted
God takes care of His own.
He upholds all that fall…we may fall, but we are not cast down, made downhearted, demoralized. Illness, distress, falling into sin, into despair, can take us down, but God sustains us, keeps us near to His bosom. His grace covers us, holds us up, may prevent the fall, recovers the fall quickly. It is by His love that we are held and He holds our spirits up as well.
When affliction and oppression burden us, taking us down, God raises us, comforts us, brings us back into His arms.
Praise Him. He is the Mighty One Who saves.
to deliver, to save, be saved, to be liberated, be victorious, to save from moral troubles
The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness;
He will quiet you by His love;
He will exult over you with loud singing. Zephaniah3:16
Thank You, Father, for always being right here, for being ready to pick me up and hold me near. Thank You for loving me unconditionally just as I am. I am always mindful, LORD, that You have reached out to this child, caring about me, for me. You rejoice over me with Your love…rejoice.over.me! You. The Father of all. The Creator. The Mighty One. Oh, I am humbled because You love me. You even sing over me. I am just amazed, Father. So amazed. I just am as I smile widely. In the beautiful Name of Jesus. Amen.
