Psalm 119.116

Standing, where other’s dread

“Sustain me according to Your word, that I may live; and do not let me be ashamed of my hope” [Psalm 119.116 NASB]

Do you ever feel like the next piece of bad news which you receive will be the final one? David may also have felt like that.

There he was, a man of faith and confidence, in [Psalm 119.114] hoping in God's word and declaring to everyone, that God was his refuge and shield and now the dreaded possibility of God disappointing him had arisen with alarming quickness and came to the forefront of his mind.

Have you ever really stood out in faith from your friends and wholly depended on God's word? Did you feel like you were standing on the plank of faith and beneath you there was a vast and bottomless ocean with any amount of ravenous enemies just waiting to devour you?

How did you react? Did you turn and run back, as quick as you could, to a firm footing? Time passes ever so quickly, and here you are again in the same situation.

Bearing in your mind, your catastrophic failure, at least according to man's understanding, how does God see you now?

He is pleased as He views you, prepared to believe God again. Paul said to the Roman believers, "For I long to visit you so I can share a spiritual blessing with you …” [Romans 1.11 NLT].

What spiritual blessing is God imparting to you at this time? His strength. Why? You may have been weary as David was at that time, and decided to fold up your conditional commitment for the time being.

But now, once again, you long to be known as a man or woman of faith. What do you need to do? Pray and trust. Now you know, through experience that He will not fail you.

Peter only had one major fall, Paul never. What made the difference? Paul learned by revelation and experience that God was able to keep him from falling. Peter, on the other hand, learned through experience and revelation the same lesson.

Does it matter in which way we learn this spiritual truth? No. Both of these men were known by God and respected by men for their faith and unconditional commitment.

By continually depending on His strength, you also will be numbered among that select number. [David McArdle].


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
