three things to remember…

something else that has never changed is GOD’s plan of salvation. 

for two thousand years there is only one way to get to know GOD and that’s through JESUS CHRIST HIS SON.  JESUS said, i am the way – “I’m not a good way, the best way, one way, –but the way”.  and HIS plan has never changed.  GOD’s invitation to you has never changed.  HE wants you to come to HIM and establish a relationship with HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. 

in your life, between now and when you die, however long that is, you will experience many stressful changes in your life.  my question becomes:  how are you going to respond to those changes? you can’t prepare for them because they aren’t predictable.  you don’t know what they’re going to be.  how are you going to handle them?  what’s going to be the source of stability in your life?

three things to remember when you’re under stress and they’re based on the three things we’ve been at.  they are absolute facts.  they become spiritual anchors for your soul in a changing world.

1) GOD will never stop loving me.  never.  he won’t even love me less.  i won’t understand all that is going on but no matter what HE’s doing, HE’s acting toward me in love.  that’s a stabilizer. no matter what happens, HE loves me.

2) GOD’s word is always right.  the advice in the bible is the right thing to do, even if it’s unpopular or unpleasant it is always the right thing to do.  that’s a stabilizer.

3) GOD’s purpose for my life is bigger than my problems. problems can’t change GOD’s purpose.  it has not changed GOD’s purpose for your life and it will not change what HE wants to do in your life. 

psalm 125.1(tlb), those who trust in the LORD are as steady as mount zion, unmoved by any circumstance.  that’s what i call stability, unmoved by any circumstance. 

just a thought from the front porch…
