Psalm 37:23-24 – The Lord Upholdeth

Psalm 37:23-24
23
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.
24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.

-A disciple is one who follows after a particular philosophy or mentor; in the case of a Christian Disciple, we follow Jesus Christ.  Where He goes, we go; when he stops, we stop; where He leads, we follow.  This is important because we will inevitably stumble and fall.  Proverbs 24:16 says “a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again.”  How is he able to rise?  Because he follows the Lord and so the Lord is always near to lift him back up.  Proverbs 24:16 also says that “the wicked shall fall into mischief.”  Why is that?  Because the Lord is not near to catch the wicked when they fall.  “Woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.” (Ecclesiastes 4:10)
