“and He will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is Zion’s treasure.” -Isaiah 33:6 ESV
I was enjoying @itwondersme page the other day when I read this verse which stopped me on my tracks along with her words that followed:
“STABLE isn’t a word I’d use to describe 2020.”
As I continued to read her post, she went on to remind me that planting myself on the rock of Jesus gives me true stability in a very unstable world, no matter what is going on around me or with this roller coaster year. I was reminded that I can take heart because God has already made a great promise, and I’m choosing to cling on to it.
Somehow, someway, He WILL be the stability of our times, even if right now we can’t comprehend it, sense it, or be able to believe for it. I know in my own life I am CRAVING to feel some kind of stability in my own present times, in my own personal world, in my nation and in the world at large—and because it’s already written, i’m going to hold on to that promise and believe for it. If anyone wants to join me in a simple hope-filled prayer, I’m including mine below:
Truth be told our world feels so broken and I’m not sure how to find stability in it. But your word says that YOU WILL BE the stability of my times, and I’m choosing to cling onto that promise. I may not always walk full of faith and confidence, but I am surrendering my fears to you, and asking you to exchange them for a heart filled with hope and faith in your promises. Dear God, thank you for the coming stability of my own times, for the hope I find in you, and for your perfect love that casts out fears and never looses sight of me, and never ever lets me go.
