“Oops!” the little girl squealed as the plate crashed to the floor, “I didn’t mean to do that, Mommy. I’m so sorry.”

“That’s okay, Baby Girl. I’ll help you pick it up,” said her mother as she stooped down to help her.

Simple illustration. And a simple truth that all of us can relate to: God stoops down to help us in the midst of our “plate-crashing” moments of life. Whether it be a trust we’ve broken, a word we’ve spoken, an important date we’ve forgotten, or whatever pit we’ve fallen into, God bends down/stoops down to help us in our times of need!

Uhmmm…reminds me of the richness of Psalm 40! Soak in this: I waited patiently for the Lord; He inclined to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord (Psalm 40: 1-4).
