Vs. 117 — Hold me up, and I shall be safe, And I shall observe Your statutes continually.
Charles H. Spurgeon:
“Hold thou me up”: as a nurse holds up a little child. “And I shall be safe,” and not else; for unless thou hold me up I shall be falling about like an infant that is weak upon its knees. We are saved by past grace, but we are not safe unless we receive present grace. (Spurgeon, C. H. (2009). The treasury of David: Psalms 111-119 (Vol. 5, p. 357). Bellingham, WA: Logos Bible Software.)
O’ God, hold me up, and I shall be safe, and I shall observe Your statutes continually. I know that my soul is hidden in Christ. I now ask for daily bread to hold me up in this life, day-to-day. I need Your grace for each breath and each step. Thank You, Father, for Your sufficient grace. Amen.
