You Will Not Be Cast Headlong

5686278220_980a7fe76f_z This week's Fighter Verse at Calvary provides a faith-building declaration from Yahweh:

The steps of a man are established by the Lord,

when he delights in his way;

though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,

for the Lord upholds his hand.

(Psalm 37:23-24, English Standard Version)

Two promises - Yes! - but note the two important conditions and grounds for those promises:

(1)  Your steps will be established by Yahweh,

but only when you delight in the ways of Yahweh.

(2)  Even though you fall, you will not be utterly and fully be cast down,

for, delighting in Yahweh, he will uphold your hand.
