We might wobble, but we won’t fall down

Psalm 119:165

Great peace have they who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.  NIV

I found this reminder yesterday when I was searching the New International Version of the Bible for occurrences of the word, “wait.”  This verse comes just before the “wait” reminder that I looked at yesterday.

This verse, this reminder, is all about obedience.

If we are obedient to God in all things, we will be granted peace such that nothing can trip us up.

The image that comes to mind is a Weeble — a Playskool toy that my sister had when she was little.   Their commercial had a little song to it, and the words were, “Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down.”

Sure enough, they didn’t.  I tried to keep them down … it was impossible.  The toy is engineered such that no matter what you do, it always returns to it’s rightful orientation … right-side up and standing tall.

As an obedient Christian, I might wobble a bit in my clumsy attempts to do God’s will and to follow His commands, but, I will not end up face down in the dirt.

That’s a reminder not to worry, and that’s what I’ll think about today.
