I was almost gone!
(J.R. Miller, "Help for the Day")
"But as for me, I almost lost my footing. My feet were slipping, and I was almost gone!" Psalm 73:2
The God of the Bible, is the God of those who have failed. Wherever there is a weak, stumbling Christian, unable to walk alone — to him the Divine heart goes out in tender thought and sympathy, and the Divine hand is extended to support him and keep him from falling. Wherever one has fallen, and lies in defeat or failure — over him bends the Heavenly Father in kindly pity, to raise him up and to help him to begin again.
"Yet I am always with You; You hold me by my right hand. You guide me with Your counsel, and afterward You will take me into glory!" Psalm 73:23-24
"My soul clings to You; Your right hand upholds me!" Psalm 63:8
"Hold me up — and I shall be safe!" Psalm 119:117
