Monday’s Column: Neal At The Cross
In a world facing ever-changing circumstances, we need to be reminded of some truths about God. A great text that can help us do this is found in the writings of the Messianic prophet, Isaiah. He tells us some exciting facts about God in Isaiah 33:5-6. In brief, Isaiah reminds us of God’s transcendence (“exalted…on high”), His trustworthiness (“has filled Zion with justice and righteousness”), and His treasure (“a wealth of salvation, wisdom and knowledge; The fear of the Lord is his treasure”). In the midst of upholding God’s perfect character, the prophet makes this reassuring statement: “And He will be the stability of your times.”
In part, here is what that means to us today…
- There is no minimum distance we have to keep from Him under any circumstance (Jas. 4:8).
- There is no restriction or limit on our access to Him and His blessings, on prayer or His Word (Phil. 4:19).
- There is no chance that you will look for Him and He will not be there (Psa. 50:15).
- There is no possibility that you will learn that what was true of Him yesterday is not true of Him today (or tomorrow)(Heb. 13:8)
- There is no cancellation policy at the throne of grace for the child of God (Heb. 4:16).
- There is no threat or danger that can keep you from the love of God (Rom. 8:38-39).
- There is no earthly thing to nullify the truth that “the Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid” (Heb. 13:6).
- The more we expose ourselves to Him, the healthier we will be.
- There is zero chance that you will go to Him for healing and have it fail (Jer. 8:22; Luke 5:31).
Scripture calls Him the Rock (Deut. 32:4), the shield (2 Sam. 22:31), my protection (Isa. 27:5), my shield, stronghold, and protection (2 Sam. 22:3), and a strong tower (Prov. 18:10). As Nebuchadnezzar understood, “all His works are true and His ways just” (Dan. 4:37).
Take heart. Take on the day. Take comfort and refuge. “And He will be the stability of your times.”
One thought on ““AND HE WILL BE THE STABILITY OF YOUR TIMES””
Thank you for the words of encouragement!
