On Stable Ground

Posted on: 7-15-112017

“He is your constant source of stability; He abundantly provided safety and great wisdom; He gives all this to those who fear Him.” Isaiah 33:6

I came across this verse of Scripture today and the part that really struck me was “constant source of stability.” In the world we live in, stability seems almost like a fleeting dream.  There are so many difficulties and trials looming over us that we can find ourselves one step away from falling into the pit of instability on any given day. We blame the difficulties of life for our instability, but could it be that they are not the problem at all? Could it be that we are trying to find our stability in the wrong places and when those places fail us, we are left falling apart? For example, we may be looking at wealth for our stability, but when something happens and the money is gone, where does that leave us? We may be looking at our job for stability, but if something goes ary and the job ends, what are we left holding on to? We may be looking for another person as our stability, but  what happens when that person fails us or is no longer there? The truth is there is nothing other than Christ that can be our stability. Anything we turn to other than Him will inevitably fail us, leaving us with nothing to hold on to.  He alone is our anchor who will keep our feet firmly planted no matter what comes our way.
