Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is His treasure (Isaiah 33:6).
The only consistent thing in the universe is the Word of God! As the Amplified Bible says in : Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven [stands firm as the heavens] (Psalms 119:89 – AMPC) It never changes. Jesus said: Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away (Matthew 24:35).
In a world of increasing instability, we have a rock, a solid foundation for living. Jesus said that practicing the Word is like building your house on rock instead of shifting sand. When difficulties come, you’ll be unmoved! Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock (Matthew 7:24-25-NLT)
The more Word you practice, the stronger the foundation of your life will be. All weakness is the results of our leaving the Word in some way. The strength, the life, the wisdom, the rest, the grace, and the power of the Word of God will sustain you in life’s most arduous circumstances.
I had been a believer for just a few years when a spiritual leader rocked my world. He said some things to me in a private meeting that were untrue but very hurtful. The impact on my life was severe. I was only 20 years old, and his words seriously affected my mental and emotional equilibrium.
Day after day his hurtful words ravaged my mind. The enemy used them to bring me great condemnation and discouragement. I felt hopeless, alone, and abandoned.
But I was not without help. I decided to ignore my feelings and these aberrant thoughts that ceaselessly attacked my mind. I would spend the entire day forcing a scripture to revolve over and over in my mind. I chose to believe God’s Word over this man’s Word. And after a period of time, I regained my mental and emotional balance, and found peace again.
This experience taught me the power of the Word in my life, and how the Word can bring stability. Since then, I have given the Word room in my thoughts and in my life every day. And the stability of the Word has rooted itself into who I am and what I do.
Regardless of how tough the circumstance may be that you’re facing, choose to act on God’s Word. Say it aloud. Let it roll over and over in your mind. Refuse to let your emotions rule you. The Father will provided you with needed wisdom, and the Word will produce freedom and liberty. You’ll come through the hard place. And you’ll know that God’s Word produces results.
Give room in your thought life today for the Word to dwell in you richly, and you’ll find the Father’s stability and strength for every situation!
