God’s Firm Support

My 18 month old grandson tried climbing onto the bed holding onto a pillow. It’s no surprise he fell backwards. To be sure of completing his climb, he needed a firm(er) foundation that a pillow could not provide.

How very true for us. How often have we tried to mount the pressures and challenges in life without grasping the firm foundation that only God can provide.

May we remember today to hold onto God’s unchanging hand for support. Only then will we be able to deal with life’s sure surprises.

2 Samuel 22:17-20
‘He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, BUT THE LORD WAS MY SUPPORT. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. (2 Samuel 22:17-20 NIVUK)

I’ve always asked God to give me the GREEN LIGHT when I’m driving to work and running late. Whether or not He does it is not the point.

The point is Green Light is similar to finding out the will of the Lord. We find that out step by step; day by day; walking with Him. 

We cannot get Green lights before we’re on the road; or before we get to the intersections. At The lights we are told what to do…Prepare to stop; Stop; or Go.

That’s how it is with God’s will. When we get to life’s intersections (whether its decision making, trials, job or career, relationships, etc.) He tells us what to do, where to go, and what to say. Abraham did it with his son when he said God will provide the lamb to be slaughtered.

Step by step; day by day; with obedience and faith, we too can know God’s will for our lives.
