God doesn't seek to destroy people that are lower than Him, or those at rock bottom.

The Lord is way kindhearted. He doesn't nurse, maintain, or cover a get-even-with kinda chip on His shoulder. Sure He likes humility and faith, but He ain't out to submerge people to the bottom, and then long-term keep em down, or hurt em, or hinder em some so called pious people like to do. Back in the day Pharisees enjoyed doin' that kinda thing. 

But God encourages, He tenderly brushes em off if they've scraped their knee. He lifts. He protects. He fills em, and He restores people to what they were meant to be.

He gives, "them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting" (Isaiah 61:3). That's just the kind of Person He is and that's the kind of person we all need to hang tight with...rather than the other kind.
