After diminutive Olympic athlete Gabby Douglas captured two gold medals in the 2012 London Games, she made this proclamation: God will never fail you. Hes always on your side.
Sometimes this kind of statement by an athlete can be misunderstood. It can be taken to mean that if Im competing against you in a sports contest and I have Gods help, there is no way I can lose. But if we turn to Psalm 118:5-6, we get the true picture of what this line means. The psalmist wrote, I called on the Lord in distress; the Lord answered me and set me in a broad place. The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
Another version translates verse 6 as the Lord is with me (niv). Its the idea that when trouble comes into our lives, God, who is full of mercy and love (which endures forever, v.4) will always be attentive to us and provide the protection we need.
We dont have to be an Olympic champion to appreciate this kind of divine attention. This is what we need when the economy falters and our finances cant keep up. Its what we need when a relationship we cherished falls apart. No matter what our situation, as Christ-followers we know where to find help. The Lord is on my side.
Read: Psalm 118:1-6
