Periodically, and especially in a brand new year with far to go for the rest of the year, we need to remind ourselves that the Lord will take care of us. Yes, He is the Creator of the universe, the One who made the mountains, sun, moons, stars, sparrows and lilies of the fields, who looks after us even when we forget, fret and fume when things go wrong.
When the earth practically moves under our feet with earthquakes physical, emotional or spiritual, when the tsunamis of surprising tides of changing global fashions and fads, risks of all dimensions seem to overwhelm us with their speed, pure force and immensity, we have to bow to our Creator of the Universe and say “Lord, only You have control over everything. Please take care of me for I am terribly exposed and can so easily be undone.”
When mountains of bills, life pressures, unprecedented challenges seem insurmountable we are to remember we can fly on His eagle wings, on the wind that only He can blow so we rise and are lifted above the mountains into the heavenlies and find the security and strength to surmount all, to find them far below, with the extended limits of fortitude He gives.
Amen.. when we come to the extremes of life, when we are weakest, when we feel we can no longer hang in there and our faith is just so small the size of a mustard seed – He comes, His precious Holy Spirit, gentle as a dove. and turns the tide of opposition, unbelievable difficulties and challenges, and He helps us focus our faith on Him, to stand on the Solid Rock Christ Jesus.
Hallelujah! from the miry clay to the Solid Rock Christ Jesus. Only those who know Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord can have this wondrous experience. We shall overcome rested in and on Him whatever 2012 brings.
