“Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation.” Psalm 68:19
Our Lord daily bears us up. Throughout each day that passes, every step we walk down this path of life, we are being upheld by our God. So He isn’t just our salvation in that one moment when we choose to trust in Christ and accept the sacrifice He gave in order to save our souls from death and free us from the bonds of sin. No, He is our salvation in this moment as well. Whatever we face. However we are struggling. God is our salvation. It is His strength that holds us up, His peace that soothes our soul, His hand that uplifts our face.
“The LORD upholds all who are falling and raises up all who are bowed down” (Psalm 145:14). It’s such a comfort to know that when we fall, someone is there to catch us. 2 Timothy 2:19 tells us, “The Lord knows those who are His.” He is watching over us. His grace is sustaining us and it is always enough. His “power is in the skies” (Psalm 68:34), displayed before us day and night, and every day He is carrying us, strengthening us, loving us steadfastly. There is not a moment when our Lord fails to be faithful. As we cling to Him, choosing to believe and to trust regardless of what we see, He will assure our heart that He is here and that His Word proves true.
