Unless We are Upheld by an Invisible Arm!

"Hold me up–and I shall be safe!" Psalm 119:117
We need God’s constant presence, power and grace.
Except He upholds us–we shall certainly fall.
We would have fallen before this–if God had not kept us!
We would fall every dayunless we are upheld by an invisible arm!

This day Satan may lay some snare for us!
This day our evil hearts may deceive us!
This day the world may lay some unexpected bait for us!
And unless the Holy Spirit . . .
  opens our eyes,
  gives us fresh supplies of grace, or
  holds us back by an invisible power
–we shall utterly fall!
"Hold me up–and I shall be safe!"
Let this be our daily prayer! It will never be unsuitable!

(James Smith, "Daily Bible Readings for the Lord’s Household")
