Be Stable

Psalms 112:7 ESV

We need to come to the point in our lives that when negative situations come our way, we just laugh, pray, shout, and dance it off.  This is stability at its finest—when you are not moved one bit by the cares of this world.  This is by no means an easy task to do, but before we were born again, we lived according to our flesh.  Our flesh wants to yell, kick, scream, cry, and cuss when negativity or unpleasant situations come our way.  Once we realize that being a Christian does not stop bad things from happening and we live according to our spirit, we will be better able to handle the issues of life because we now have God on our side, and He can handle anything.  

When a tree has deep roots, no amount of individual human effort will be able to uproot it. You will need some heavy machinery in order to knock it down.  This is how we need to be as Christians.  In order to get us to act according to the flesh and to get us to move off our faith, the devil will have to wear himself out trying to bring us down.  We have more power than he will ever have (see Luke 10:19).  Jesus left us His Word and it’s sharper than any two-edged sword (see Hebrews 4:12).  If Jesus’ Word and your faith can move mountains (see Mark 11:23), what do you think it can do with the little situations we face in life? When you know this biblical truth, you can operate in stability.

It’s time to stand firm on God’s Word and speak it to the situations that arise in your life.  Stability is one of the best attributes you can possess as a Christian.  Stability brings peace that passes understanding, while instability brings frustration and stress.  Get rooted in God’s Word and watch your roots grow to the point where you will not be able to be shaken no matter what the situation is!

Meditation Scripture (s):

“But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence.  They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7-8 NLT)

He alone is my rock, my deliverance, and my high tower; nothing will shake me. (Psalms 62:2 ISV)
