There is some powerful insight in Psalm 46 found in the Living Bible, and I share it with you…for I believe it to be fitting for these “uncertain” times we are experiencing. There is NOTHING unsure or uncertain about our God. He knows exactly where all these events are leading, and His words of promise are steady, certain, and absolute. Not a one of them shall fall to the ground. Upon THIS we must fix our minds and hearts…for in so doing…we will be set “upon the Rock of our salvation”…the Eternal Truth of our God.
“God is our refuge and strength, a tested help in times of trouble. And so we need not fear even if the world blows up and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam; let the mountains tremble! There is a river of joy flowing through the City of our God – the sacred home of the God above all gods. God Himself is living in that City; therefore, it stands UNMOVED despite the turmoil everywhere. He will not delay His help. The nations rant and rave in anger- but when God speaks, the earth melts in submission and kingdoms totter into ruin.
“The Commander of the armies of heaven is here among us. He, the God of Jacob, has come to rescue us. Come, see the glorious things that our God does, how He brings ruin upon the world, and causes wars to end throughout the earth, breaking and burning every weapon. Stand silent! Know that I AM GOD! I will be honored by every nation in the world! The Commander of the heavenly armies is here among us! He, the God of Jacob, has come to rescue us!”
One definition of Truth is “that which agrees with ultimate reality”, and as the people of God, we must keep our sights and our purpose upon “that which agrees with ultimate reality.” We will literally “see” many unnerving things happen…but the Truth remains unchanged…UNMOVED! Fix your gaze upon it! It is the anchor of our souls…the Light in the darkness…the Way through it all!
Jesus Christ (the Way, the Truth, the Life) is the SAME….yesterday, today, and forever! Hebrews 13:8 He is ever the LIGHT of the world! This sure knowledge brings with it such JOY, such PEACE, such LOVE…eternally dependable! Lift Him high for all to see by the way you live your daily life. The multitudes will be drawn to IT as you “stand UNMOVED despite turmoil everywhere!”
Shine, JESUS, shine! Fill this land with the Father’s Glory!
DETERMINATION: Working intently to accomplish goals regardless of the opposition.
“Jesus Christ is the SAME…yesterday, today, and forever!” Hebrews 13:8
