5:12 – A sound of wailing and gnashing of teeth is heard from a little one who is certain that the newly acquired scrape is signaling their demise.
"Lord, I was more like a feather than a wall in the last few minutes. I am crying out to you for forgiveness, help, and a new gaze. Please allow me, by Your grace, not to be moved."
How can the next time go the way my heart desires?
How can a feather-like faith be transformed into a brick wall of resolution and strength?
Psalm 16:8 states, “I have set the Lord always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.”
The only way to be unmovable is to keep our eyes firmly fixed on the One who remains the same through it all. Then we must remind ourselves that we are not standing alone. God stands at our side with His arms bracing us against any circumstance.
Come what may, God never changes His position or falters under the weight. We are not moved because He can’t be.
Well, as I gathered myself together to head back in the fray, I had the right gaze and the reminder of His arms holding me.
The next 30 minutes actually still resembled the previous set, but there was a difference. I wasn’t resting in my strength, determination, or wisdom. Now I was resting on the only One who can never be shaken.
Feather like faith to a brick wall resolve requires us to set the Lord always before us and to rest in Him alone. What are you resting in today? Are you resting in your own strength, determination and wisdom? Or are you resting in the only One who can never be shaken.
