All Who Are Bowed Down

All Who Are Bowed Down

We have seen it time and again.     Someone does something  to hurt another,  and then flippantly says,  “Sorry!”     It’s obvious  that they are not sorry  for hurting another.

That’s bad enough  —  but many treat God Almighty  in the same way.     Just because  they have heard  that the LORD is  a very forgiving God,  they imagine  they can flip a quick,  “Sorry,  LORD!”  to take care  of everything  they are not sorry for.     That is disrespectful  of God’s grace.

Because people often tend  to be that way,  King David  wrote  in Psalm 145:14,

The LORD sustains all  who fall
And raises up all  who are bowed down.

Here we need  to note  that those  who are not humbly sorry  for their wrong doing,  are not “raised up”  or “sustained”  in their lives.     In other words,  they are not forgiven  and given the relief  of God’s grace.     It is only  “all  who are bowed down”,  who are relieved  and forgiven  for their sins.     They just honestly  feel sorry  that they did wrong.

God gladly forgives “all”  who honestly want  to live according to God’s truths,  in faith,  hope,  and love.     David praised God  for His gracious understanding  and willingness  to forgive.

We need  to do the same  as we strive  to live  in a way that is decent,  right,  and loving.

Sustained  by our Savior’s love,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for tending  to our deepest needs.”

Love,
