How often do I look at the changing world around me, allowing it to create dis-ease in my mind or stir up fear in my heart? The amount of uncertainty we face is at an all time high it seems, but is it really? Behind the thin veneer of what the world has taught me to think was secure, the covering has been removed and exposed. Our world is not secure or our stable ground, but we must remember that it is not meant to provide all that we need. The world is good as it was created out of God’s goodness, but it is not the prize of my eternal home.
As I keep my eyes and heart turned toward God, I’m standing on solid ground, turning towards the one who sustains me, who gives me my very breath. A God who loves me, keeps His promises and is a trustworthy source of everything I need. This steadies me in changing and perilous times. This gives me joy despite my circumstances, knowing I am His and He is all I need.
While keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith. For the sake of the joy that lay before him he endured the cross, despising its shame, and has taken his seat at the right of the throne of God.Hebrews 12:2
Lord, thank you for revealing to me that You and Your joy are all I need.
