Finding Stability

by | Dec 9, 2014 | Devotionals

Lord, I am so concerned for a loved one right now. It seems everything is out of control and unstable. I want to control it, but I can’t and even if I did I’d probably make it even more of a mess. So right now I ask You to take over. I ask You to help me resist the urge to try and become the director here. Help me surrender this to You every day, and every moment. Forgive my tendency to worry, and help me to keep my eyes on You rather than fearful circumstances. Please work mightily! Amen

Be still and know that I am your God and your loved one’s God. I will be exalted in this situation. This is not your battle but mine! I have begun a good work in this child, and I will be faithful to complete it. Remember, you’ve been here before? You thought if only you could your loved one to the right counselor, everything would be ok, and it never worked. You exerted your might, but it was never enough. It will not be by your might or power, but by my Spirit that this mountain will be removed. What is impossible for you is nothing for Me! Cease striving and leave this in my hands. You cannot add anything to your life by worrying. I see and I care. I have not abandoned you in this situation so do not be afraid. Trust in Me, believe in my goodness towards you. You are treasured, and the one you worry about is too. Do not look anxiously about you or seek answers from the arm of flesh. Find peace in my presence and wait for my salvation. I see your concern for stability, and I will help. I am the only true stability. Trust me.

The Lord is exalted, for he dwells on high; he will fill Zion with justice and righteousness, and he will be the stability of your times, abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is Zion’s treasure. Is. 33:5-6
