My soul, wait thou only upon GOD; for my expectation is from him. He only is my rock and my salvation, he is my defence; I shall not be moved. In GOD is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in GOD. Trust in him at all times, ye people, pour out your heart before him; GOD IS A REFUGE FOR US. SELAH! PSALM 62:5-8
GOD has spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto GOD. PSALM 62:11
When I remember Thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches. Because Thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of Thy wings will I rejoice. Psalm 63:6-7
But those that seek my soul, to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth. They shall fall by the sword; they shall be a portion for foxes. But the king shall rejoice in GOD; every one that sweareth by him shall glory; but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped. PSALM 63:6-7, 9-11
Beloved of GOD, there’s no denying that in times like these, even those of us who have placed our trust in The Saving Grace of Jesus Christ are being battered and buffeted by the the winds of these unusual and unprecedented challenges of chaos, confusion, uncertainty and unsettling distress. TRUTHBTOLD, our souls are increasingly vexed by the dissention between what we’ve been believing for and what we’re presently experiencing, often causing us to doubt the very fundamental pillars of our confession.
HOWEVERRRRRR, as we still the noise of bolstering pestilences, we hear The Voice of Jesus bubbling up from our belly, reminding us that as Born-Again, Blood-Washed, Holy-Ghost-Baptized Children of The Most High God, WE WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT! OUR FAITH MUST REMAINED EMBEDDED AND ANCHORED IN THE ROCK SOLID TRIUMPHANT TESTIMONY OF OUR RISEN SAVIOR AND NOT IN INEVITABLE CONSEQUENTIAL CONDITIONS OF OUR TEMPORAL HABITATION IN THIS FALLEN WORLD!
Remember how the Ol’ Skool Churrch Mothers would saanngg, “My Faith is built on nothing less, BUT JESUS BLOOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS; I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but WHOLLY lean on Jesus Name. On CHRIST, the Solid Rock I stand, for all other ground is sinking sand!”
What about that other song, “Where do I go when there’s nobody else to turn to?
Who do I turn to when nobody wants to listen? Who do I lean on when there’s no foundation stable? I go to the Rock, I know He’s able, I go to the Rock!”
Well, guess what? Times may have changed, but THE ANSWER REMAINS THE SAME!
WHERE do we go and WHO should we turn to? The government, Google, CNN, MSNBC, FOX! GOD FORBID! I Don’t know about you, but last time I checked, The Bible said, ‘put no confidence in the frailty of fickle, flawed human flesh!
SOMEBODY SAY…’BEEN THERE, DONE DAT AND AIN’T GOING BACK!” #ijs…When I need stability, shelter, strength, deliverance and protection, “I run to the ROCK THAT’S HIGHER THAN I!” “I go to the Rock, I know He’s able, I go to the Rock!” HIS NAME IS JESUS!
PRECIOUS ONES, when the cares of this world are closing in on us, we YET have a hiding place IN THE IMMUTABLE WORD OF GOD! Remember, ‘Errrr thang is going down, BUT THE WORD OF GOD!” When your trust remains hooked into The KING of King and The LORD of Lords, rest patiently assured, HE WILL deal with your enemies! #checkdabook! TRUST2KNO, HE IS OUR GLORRAAAAA!
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
