Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Are you not a child of God? So lift yourself as a lion. “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people) (Proverbs 14:34). “…. the righteous are bold as a lion” (Proverbs 28:1).

Believe God and walk upright shaking off all your sinful nature. David prayed “O LORD, truly I am Your servant; I am Your servant, the son of Your maidservant; you have loosed my bonds (Psalm 116:16). “You have loosened my bonds” was the witness of David.

All those who lay their belief on money, things and influences will break and fall. The wicked will not have peace. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. They have bowed down and fallen; but we have risen and stand upright (Psalm 20:7, 8).
What was the reason which rose in the heart of Jesus to heal a woman who had infirmities for eighteen years?

He made her walk upright.
Look at Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and people hated him. He stood with a bowed head. But what was his resolution which helped him to stand upright? He said to God “if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold” and immediately God said to the people “….because he also is a son of Abraham” (Luke 19:9). God brought him into his family. You should have faith in God. All those who have faith in God will be called as children of God.
Abraham had two sons. One was Ishmael who was born by the flesh. The other son was Isaac who was born by faith. Today you are the children of Christ, a descendent of Abraham who was a friend of God.
To meditate: “For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham.” (Hebrews 2:16) There are double fold benefits and blessings for you. Definitely you will walk upright.
