Faith’s Checkbook

July 16 A Word to the Lame I will save the lame. (Zephaniah 3:19) There are plenty of these lame ones, both male and female. You might meet the lame twenty times in an hour. They are in the right road and are exceedingly anxious to travel on it with diligence, but they are lame and make a sad walk of it. On the heavenly road, there are many cripples. It may be that they say in their hearts, What will become of us? Sin will overtake us; Satan will throw us down. Ready-to-halt is our name and our nature (Psalm 38:17).[1] The Lord can never make good soldiers of us, nor even agile messengers to go on His errands. Well, well! He will save us, and that is not a small thing. He says, I will save the lame. In saving us, He will greatly glorify Himself. Everybody will ask, How did this lame woman come to run the race and win the crown? And then the praise will all be given to almighty grace. Lord, though I halt, or hesitate, or am lame in faith, in prayer, in praise, in service, and in patience, save me, I plead with You! Only You can save such a cripple as I am. Lord, do not let me perish because I am among the last, but gather up by Your grace the slowest of Your pilgrims – even me. Behold, He has said it will be so, and therefore, like Jacob prevailing in prayer, I go forward even though the socket of my thigh is dislocated (Genesis 32:24-32). [1] Mr. Ready-to-halt is a character in John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress.
