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.
-The great gift that comes from trusting in the Lord is not having to worry about being “utterly cast down.” What does it mean to be utterly cast down? It is being in a situation where you can never recover or where all hope is lost. Every day people get crushed under the weight of life’s circumstances and every day people die and slip off into Hell. This is what the Lord keeps us from; we always have a reason for hope and a source of joy even in the midst of bitter pain and ultimately, by the Lord’s doing, we never have to be cast down into Hell. We may stumble, we may even fall, but we are held by the Father and no one or nothing is able to remove us from His hand. (John 10:28-29)
