“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.”
Where do you find your security. Maybe it’s in our marriage, a career, good health, or even a comfortable lifestyle.
But what would happen if your “security blanket” disappeared overnight? What if you lost your job? What if your spouse walked out on you? Or a health issue surfaced or you’re diagnosed with a disease? Let’s pray these never happen!
There will be times in our life when we’re jolted out of our false security. This is usually when panic sets in because we realize how vulnerable we really are. God has a way of showing us that we need to rely on Him and His Word instead of trusting in ourselves, others, or something else.
Our response to our troubles may sound like, “God, why have you forsaken me?” “How am I going to make it?” “How much longer, God?”
Have you been there before? Maybe your there right now.
Here is the truth: Everything on this earth is temporary, but the things of God stand forever.
We watch the grass turn green and the flowers bloom. These are the seasons when everything is going smooth and we start to believe that we don’t need God. But then the grass dries up and petals fall off leaving a gloomy landscape.
The promise that God gives us is that His Word stands forever. The things of God are permanent and they will last forever.
Do you have any areas of your life where you are in complete control? Those are the areas where God will eventually show you that you need Him.
Lord, show me where I’m trying to be in control and not allowing You to guide me. Help me to not trust in false hope. God, I allow you to come into every area of my life.
