The Lord…He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure. (Isaiah 33:5,6 NIV)
The word stability struck a chord with me yesterday. While looking for definition- easy enough, the state of being stable. Further definitions are being able to stand or endure. Reflection for every individual will vary on condition of stability. What will be our response should something tragic happen; tragic to self, family, community, or country?
Most can walk a straight line. Add a balance beam will throw stability off. Where most of us every day walk without concern to future happenings. I’ve received that call- my three year old crushed under an ATV not breathing. We can never take one second for grated. Knowing what we believe, why we believe, living our faith matters.
So… if on a scale from 1-10, 10 being highest trust in one’s stability. Where do we rank? If 8 or below, lets’s get serious about becoming more stable. Everything in the world may be going against someone right now. No matter how deep a pit, we start by looking up. Satan wants eyes kept on problems. God wants eyes kept on solution. The solution is Jesus Christ.
Building stability is best built before knocked off balance. In this world, scripture states we will have trouble. The devil throws mean punches. Yet, this is no match for Jesus. Jesus, part of the Trinity, is all powerful, omnipotent. Unlimited power, God is able to do anything. All things are possible to those who believe. Are we willing to believe today? One may have believed for years, just needing to renew faith. Turn eyes upward, trusting an unseen Savior. More we are willing, clearer sight becomes.
It never hurts to cross-check our heart, mind, and soul. Making sure foundation is secure- no chance of becoming off balanced. If we do, we’ll be ready to face the world. Just like Isaiah, advisor to King of Judah, helped set course to their future.
