Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. —Psalm 46:3
When things are stable in our world, it’s easy to feel as if all is well with our souls. But when things aren’t so stable, we tend to feel that all is not well. That’s because we’re addicted to peace, comfort, and security. When the waves increase and we’re battered about by circumstances, we often become fretful and fearful.
God uses events that turn our world upside down to drive us to cling to Him. If we’ve placed our hope in the things or people of this world, then we have reason to be fearful, because when our world gives way all we’ve trusted in will be swept away. But if we have placed our hope in God, we will still have our most precious and necessary Possession intact.
Those who have built their lives on the foundation of this present world will one day suffer irreparable loss. Those who have placed their confidence in Christ have nothing to fear, for the Solid Rock will never be moved but will support them steadfastly forever.
Make it Personal
Ask God to search your heart and show you if you’re trusting in anything or anyone other than Him for your security.
