How to find stability in a changing world
June 8, 2012
(A)nd he will be the stability of your times,
abundance of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge;
the fear of the LORD is Zion's treasure.
I don’t have to tell you that we live in a changing society and culture. No thoughtful person can look at our world and the advances of technology without feeling a bit apprehensive. Humankind now has the capability of destroying the world as we know it.
Yes, we have more power than ever before in our history. And not only that, but we live in a revolution of rising expectations with the influence of media on society. This generation is one which demands everything now. As a result, people have become frustrated, impatient, and most of all, confused.
But the one thing that can hold our world together is an anchor. You see, when a ship needs to stop, it can’t just put on the brakes. No, it has to anchor itself to something solid. It has to touch something tangible, something not susceptible to tossing and turning like the waves of the ocean. Because no matter how big the ship is, the waves will always win.
Do you want stability in an ever-changing and chaotic world? Let Jesus be your anchor. Find your rest and your peace in Him alone. That doesn’t mean you can’t change, but it means that when you do change, you’ll do so with a firm foundation of the Solid Rock… the Lord Jesus Christ!
IN A CHANGING WORLD, LOOK TO CHRIST AS YOUR ANCHOR AND FIND YOUR REST AND PEACE IN HIM.
