Today’s Blog: Steady and True
TODAY’S PROVERB: Under three things the earth trembles, and under four it cannot bear up: under a slave when he becomes a king, a fool when he is stuffed with food, an unloved woman when she is married, and a handmaid when she displaces her mistress. Proverbs 30:21-23, TLV
It’s unsettling when things don’t go the way we think they should. When up is down and right is left. When sin is no longer considered a sin and righteousness is considered quaint — or worse, ridiculed.
How do we keep up with what society deems as the new normal? How do we stop the change?
Believe it or not, some changes are good. Abolition. The right to vote for all. Victim’s rights. There are still changes that need to happen, like protection of children and women kidnapped and sold as sex slaves.
Regaining ground of the freedoms we once had should always be measured with His word. How we go about it shouldn’t conflict with it either.
Here is where we must be wise and discerning. Seeking the LORD and His word must always be the banner under which we live. We can’t give up staying true to His word and reaching out in love. Because, it’s His word that encourages and directs us during these unsettling times.
Isaiah 40: 8 “The grass withers, the flower fades. But the word of our God stands forever.”
Psalm 119: 89 “Forever, ADONAI, Your word stands firm in the heavens.”
Jesus said in Matthew 5:18: “Amen, I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or serif shall ever pass away from the Torah until all things come to pass.”
Jesus also said in Matthew 24:35: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.”
The Creator of the Universe is still in control. He’s still our Father, and His Word is true.
The earth may tremble, my friends, but we can remain steady and true.
