Psalm 94:16-19 (MSG)

Who stood up for me against the wicked?
    Who took my side against evil workers?
If God hadn’t been there for me,
    I never would have made it.
The minute I said, “I’m slipping, I’m falling,”
    your love, God, took hold and held me fast.
When I was upset and beside myself,
    you calmed me down and cheered me up.

Despite all the things that have occurred over the course of our lives, God saw fit to help us get through.  Without the help of the Lord, we wouldn’t have made it through.  We should be thankful that God kept His word to us that He would never leave us or forsake us.  When we look back, we are reminded of the many ways God protected us from those who would do us harm.  He protected us from dangers—seen and unseen.  As the Psalmist says, “If God hadn’t been there for me, I never would have made it.”  We made this far because God is always right there to help us when we stumble.  He is always right there to pick us up when we fall.  Know that you survived because God has something better in store for you.  With that said your Promised Land awaits you. Will you prepare yourself to enter the blessings God has in store for you?

As I read this passage, I can’t help but feel this is what Marvin Sapp was talking about when he said, “I’m stronger.  I’m wiser. I’m better, so much better.  When I look back over all He’s brought me through, I realize I made it because I had Him to hold onto!”  Somebody should say I never would have made it without the Lord!
