Psalm 145:14

The LORD helps all who fall; He raises up all who are oppressed.

The most comforting word in this verse to me is the little word, “all.” When I see that word, I know it includes me, too. We sometimes mistakenly think God only helps people who have not stumbled in their way, but in reality, we all fall. When we do, God is right there to help us. He doesn’t leave us there to figure a way out of our predicament on our own. Hallelujah!

God also raises up all who are oppressed, and Satan makes sure he includes us all in his tactics, too. When we do face his evil oppression, God raises us up out of it when we turn to Him. Greater is He that is in us than He that is in the world!

If you feel you have fallen and can’t get up, God is there to help you. Call upon Him. If all hope seems lost and the enemy has won, the God of all hope is there to lift you out of the oppression. Put your hope in Him. You are not alone. The LORD who helps all who fall is there with you, too.

Have a blessed day!
