“Yes, he alone is my Rock, my rescuer, defense, and fortress—why then should I be tense with fear when troubles come?” (Psalms 62: 6, The Living Bible)
Troubles may seem unavoidable. Sure, we’d love for things to go smoothly, and for good to unfold in our experience. A fruitful life with abundant joys is a right desire, and one surely in line with God’s promise for His children.
But when things happen that feel out of line with this loving plan, we have an abiding place. We can gain an even greater understanding of God’s qualities, and of the measure of His love. Rather than succumbing to fear, tensing up and bracing for a challenge we must personally confront, we can recognize that we are being defended, rescued, saved, and uplifted by God and His ever-present Truth.
You stand on a Rock that is strong, stable, and raised high above the evil accusations the world would aim against your goodness, your health, your joy. God, the Love that is Life, is reliable, powerful, and ready to lift you out of danger and at the same time reveal a view of Life, of your own identity and integrity, beyond what you have realized before.
Don’t carry the burden of unnecessary stress, cringe, or cower, or complain. Instead, realize and accept that you are secure in God’s control, on His invincible Rock. He knows how to keep you safe, provide you with answers, direction, and peace.
