Stability in a Changing World

 

 

The Bible teaches us that there is a time and season for every purpose under heaven. In other words, we will experience continual change while living in this world. Nothing stays the same, just as babies are born and elderly loved ones pass on to heaven, the passage of life moves forward. We rationally understand that change will come to us all, but human nature easily persists in holding on to that which by its very nature is temporary and corruptible.  When our lives and circumstances are suddenly altered by change, it can be hard to adjust spiritually and emotionally. Unpredictable changes in jobs, health, relationships, families, governments, and finances can easily leave us feeling fearful, unstable, insecure, and feeling perplexed. But in the middle of the mess the Great Shaddai remains the hope that holds us, and a Stronghold to shelter us. He is our great confidence who rescues us from every hidden trap of the enemy.  Our stable God of love is a Creative Intelligence who promises to be faithful to see us through all the changes and challenges we face in this life.

 

 God’s Word tells us that if we “dwell in the secret place of the Most High,” we will be able to remain stable and fixed in the middle of any and all uncertainty. To dwell in the secret place means “to reside” or “stay with” Christ, who is the Logos that makes the word alive through the Holy Spirit.  The secret place is a private, personal place within our heart where our spirit and the Holy Spirit unite. In this Holy Union, we are given the power and grace to commune, connect, reflect, and rest in Christ. Jesus calls all of His lovers who delight in Him to ‘come unto me’, and find and feel His presence, even in your time of pressure and trouble- He will help calm, comfort, and graciously give you the peace that passes understanding. He will be your glorious hero and give you a spiritual feast! You will be satisfied with a full life and with all that He does for you, for you will enjoy the fullness of His salvation. In the secret place you will receive the power to overcome any foe, and walk in love, stability, security, and His wisdom- no matter what changing circumstances may seem to create.

 

“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no foe can withstand] (Psalm 91:1).
