Oh Father, God in Heaven – to move forward with You is always “the thing to do” …. We cannot consider the right of our own reasoning alone to lead us – but steadfastly move in the direction that You give us. For things have a way of changing … with danger all around us, and those who were once simply our “competitors” have become – without true reason – our enemies!
Who would have thought that the outlook of “right” and “good” could change so quickly? … and take on such “different colors”? (All the while Your righteous judgements NEVER change – and will endure forever!! – and that in spite of what any one decides to do here….. ) Oh, Father, for us who have seen the right paths You gave us to walk in – maligned and shaken as many are leaving those paths to walk in what has become “politically correct and socially acceptable” …. (But You love us all still – that is the wonder! And You’re calling to each of us – if we would – to “get still” and know just WHO YOU ARE ….- and to taste that incredible LOVE that defines YOU and caused You – to give Yourself for the world!)
There is the path on the left – and the path farther over, on the right ….. But lest we forget …. there is also the path in the center – the one You gave us to embrace and walk – the path illuminated by Your light …. that path being steady and sure! There grace abounds and Your love is our comfort and makes us secure … and in the end it will “win out”! And surely, for those who walk on it, this path grows brighter as we approach that “perfect day”… and surely it “tastes better” than any other way – for Your presence is there ( and nothing in this world can buy such a priceless treasure!)!
…. And whilst the world around us is being shaken, You are our Rock and never change! So that as things in the world look a little shaky or uncertain – we can do as the Psalmist did do – and press in to You…… acknowledging that “while I may be a little afraid, I CAN, I WILL – trust in You! Because in life, You are the ONLY thing – Lord Jesus – that does not change!!
“Jesus Christ, the same – yesterday, today and forever” Hebrews 13:8 He does not change. In this day and hour that we live in, He IS … the only stable thing! Jesus I am so so glad to know You! And very very glad I am to know – that any one who reads this – only have to ask in order to know You too!!
