There are some who say that the whole idea of God is just a crutch for weak people and that truly strong people don’t need a crutch like that. Well, I’m not ashamed to tell you that I am VERY weak and I’m so thankful that I have a strong God to lean on!
Psalm 143 is one of my favorites and in verse 8 the psalmist talks about this leaning
Cause me to hear Your loving-kindness in the morning, for on You do I lean and in You do I trust. Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk
Sometimes we just need help walking…
A few months ago I wiped out on my bicycle and I couldn't walk…literally...I was laying on the floor in our hallway and a lightbulb came on. I wish I could say that I had a great God moment there in the hallway; but actually I remembered that the chair in the office had WHEELS! Yes! Our boys pushed me around the house on that office chair for several days. Thankfully I know who my healer is! And I'm so grateful just to be able to stand, to walk again.
There was also a dark time in my life emotionally when it was hard to put one foot in front of the other…God was a beautiful crutch to me in that season. And I was able to keep walking….to believe that this current circumstance of my life was not all there was for me…there was an “other side” and I would Walk THROUGH the storm. I would walk THROUGH the valley with Jesus right by my side.
This God Crutch, I recommend it! It's solid, strong and by far the most SURE thing for you to lean the weight of your soul on. We all pick up crutches. What are you leaning on?
