I will take hold of your hand to keep you from falling.
Though he stumble, he shall not fall, for Yahweh holds him up with his hand. Psalm 37:24
The fear of failing is a powerful motivator to keep us from doing things that require some form of risk. If we believe that we will be rejected by God if we stumble and fall, then we may not be willing to risk at all.
When our child, he had to learn to walk. The first time he tried, he would fall down. And the second time, and third time, etc. With every step that he would take, my wife and I would cheer them on and be ready to catch him if and when he would fall down.
I think it is the same way with the Lord. From His perspective, we are just little boys and little girls learning to walk out this life. He knows us completely and His heart is full of compassion towards us. When we stumble and fall, He is right beside us, ready to take our hand and help us continue our journey.
