Psalm 119:133 Steady my footsteps in your word; let no iniquity have dominion over me.
Knowing that we will fail is not an invitation to sin, but that knowledge should encourage us to get back up when we stumble—without beating ourselves up. Better to learn from our mistakes, confess our sins, be assured of God’s pardon, and ask God’s help in steadying our footsteps and defending us from the power of sin.
