An insert from my morning devotional.
Living His Word
“Where do you go when it seems like the very earth has given way? When it seems like a landslide has carried the very mountains into the heart of the sea? That which seemed stable, and even eternal, breaks apart and crumbles to pieces. You begin to question your talents and abilities. You even begin to question the call of God on your life. Maybe you got it wrong. Maybe it was all a big mistake. After all, if God were in it, He wouldn’t have allowed all this to happen, would He?
Then it gets worse. It seems like the sea can’t stop churning and convulsing. It seems like one chain of mountains wasn’t enough for it and it wants to swallow even more of them. The one thing you needed was taken away and now everything else is being threatened. Real fear begins to rise up in your soul. Anxiety like you’ve never had before gets a grip on you. You try to keep it under control, but this is beyond anything you have ever experienced. It’s the challenge of your life.”
During these times of your life did the verse below ever come to mind?
“God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.” Psalms 4:1-3
I pray these verses will come to mind and you believe the truth, God is a refuge, is strength and does help when the mountains have fallen to the heart of the sea.
Lord, show up, reveal yourself in a way that your peace and assurance baths not only the soul and mind, but the spirit of anyone who find themselves in roaring, foaming troubled waters. In Jesus name I pray, for your word never returns void.
