When the winds of change blow, it feels good to still feel secure inside. The two things you can count on in life are change and God’s love. If you are rooted in God’s love, you will be able to go through seasons of change without losing yourself. The free dictionary online defines aeronautic stability as the ability of an aircraft to resume its original flight after inadvertent displacement. How often have you felt inadvertently displaced in the middle of trouble? Like aeronautic stability, God instills in you the ability to resume your flight pattern when you trust Him as your Constant in an ever-changing world. Stability is simply remaining in God’s love.
“…I will be his God, and he will be my son.” Revelation 21:7.
My beautiful Lord, Your throne has stood from time immemorial. You yourself are from the everlasting past. I will stop babying myself. I need to remember that small children are an easy mark for impostors. God wants me to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love—like Christ in everything. I take my lead from Jesus, who is the source of everything I do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through me, nourishing me so that I will grow up healthy in God, robust in love. If I don’t know what I’m doing, I pray to the Father. He loves to help. I’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when I ask for it. I ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought. People who “worry their prayers” are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think I’ll get anything from the Master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all my options open. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. My heart is confident in you, O God; my heart is confident. No wonder I can sing your praises!
