It is our privilege to acknowledge and confide in our Lord who lives in our hearts. He lives for us and works for us today. He is our Rock who never changes with the changing world that is around us. He doesn’t change His character. His promises never change. His love for us never changes. He might not be pleased with all that we do, but that doesn’t mean that His love for us diminishes. His love to us is not conditional on our qualifications or merit. He is the exalted Lord who is above all our situations. We can face the realities of life because our Lord lives for us and He works for us. He stands firm like the Rock for us in all our situations and circumstances. Because our Lord lives for us and looks after our affairs, we need not be afraid of the consequences of the complications of our situations. Our Lord is able to take our lives out of the webs of conflicts, uncertainties, unpleasantness, rejections, oppressions, loneliness and puzzling questions about our future. Our Lord lives and so we can live with Him and for Him and move forward with Him as He leads and guides us. He proves to us each day that He is above all our problems and He invites us to live with Him at that height where our problems do not bother us. Our greatest confidence in life is that our Lord is alive like a Rock and lifted up above all our situations. He gets Himself involved with our situations to give us peace and sustainability. He rules and overrules our life situations to make sure that all glory for all that happens in our lives go to Him. We need to remind ourselves of the truth that our Lord is alive and He rules our lives for His glory. Thus we can live without anxiety about our future and trust our Lord to make our lives platforms for glorifying His name.
Dear friend, if you are going through shaky circumstances, you need not be anxious about it because your Lord who is the Rock has placed you on Him so as not to feel unstable. If you are not sure how your future turns out to be, you can still move forward your Lord knows it. If you feel intimidated, you need not be afraid because there is no scope for fear in and with the Lord. If you are confronted by the enemy through fierce attacks, you can be sure that his darts will not hit you because your Lord has encircled around you with glory. David and Daniel experienced the care and support of the Lord who was with them and protected them in times of trouble. Moses was preserved by the Lord all the time and accomplished His purpose through his tough life. Thus Moses was enabled to stand boldly for the Lord in front of the Pharaoh. Elijah faced Ahab boldly because His Lord was in control of his life and future. Daniel had no hesitation to speak boldly to Nebuchadnezzar. Peter and John spoke boldly about the Lord without fear of consequences. Paul was courageous to speak to the rulers and religious leaders. This Lord is our Lord today and forever and He lives in our lives as the Rock on whom we can lean and relax. He is exalted above all powers in this universe. He glorifies Himself through us if we are fully surrendered to His will. Today it is our blessed privilege to move with the Lord and face our situations with confidence, courage and faith.
Deuteronomy 31:6 – Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Thought for Today
No circumstance on earth will ever shake the Rock of Ages and all who take refuge on the Rock.
