I often find myself so easily swayed by all that goes on around me. Maybe it is the emotions of the day; regrets of my mistakes; illness; financial worries; or maybe someone has let me down. Some days I just feel down and unsure of my next step. I have found that I can drown in the circumstances around me.
Yet, there is one who never changes and who is always faithful despite my faults. It is He who says take heart for I have overcome the world. It is on Him I will build my house because He is my rock and my salvation so whom have I too fear.
It is in Him that I can trust because He promises to direct all my paths and to use everything for good. It is Him who has given me everything I need for life and godliness. On this rock I will stand when the waves of life sway and I will not be shaken!!
Once again as I stand on his faithful promises, he gives me the strength to stay steadfast in the tasks before me. It is in this daily steadfastness that He builds character, excellence, and strength in my life and continues to transform me into the women, wife, and mother He wants me to be.
TRUST in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Take DELIGHT in the Lord,
and He will give you your heart's desires.
COMMIT everything you do to the Lord,
Trust Him and He will help you.
He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn,
and the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
BE STILL in the presence of the Lord,
and wait patiently for Him to act.
I have found this trusting, delighting, committing, and waiting key to staying steadfast. Spending faithful time with our Lord in the word and in prayer; trusting his promises, committing all I do and delighting in Him keeps me steadfast.
Thank you Lord for your faithfulness. Help me to remember your precious promises and to trust you when life gets tough. Continue to mold me into who you want me to be and help me to commit all I do to you and do it for your glory. Amen.
What promises do you stand on?
