The Floor Is Not Very Far

I am at the home of my personal trainer. She has created a program of specific movements for me that, when repeated religiously, will give my body balance and flexibility. As I try to get into the prescribed position I say, “I am afraid I am going to fall.”

Without evidencing any apprehension, she replies, “The floor is not very far away.”

I look down and try to decide if I agree with her or not. This is a time for trust.

I wonder how many times a day I look at Jesus and say, “I am afraid I am going to fall.” Or, “God, I am afraid You are going to fail.”

I have added a couple of spiritual exercises to the regime given by my personal trainer. I want to remind myself of these promises and practice a spiritual posture that will give me balance and flexibility.

Psalm 37: 23-24 says, “If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.”

Deuteronomy 33:27a, “The eternal god is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”

May I remember today, that as a protected child of God I do not have far to fall.
