This world provides so many things that interrupt our awareness of and communion with God. We need to let God train us in steadiness. Don’t let unexpected events throw you off course. Rather respond calmly and confidently knowing that God is with you. As soon as something grabs your attention, get into the habit of talking to God about it. Today’s scripture tells us clearly that we are not alone. God is there to help you cope with whatever circumstances you are facing. Your constant awareness of Him will help you maintain the steadiness God desires for you.
Today, build in a way to remind yourself to talk to God once an hour. Those WWJD bracelets really can work. A little watch alarm…your cellphone…markings in your daytimer…a bracelet or string around your wrist. Anything that will prompt you to connect with God. More connection makes it easier to develop His lenses…then you won’t get thrown by events so easily. Thinking instead of reacting will be easier, and you will be one step closer to the Mind of Christ.
Dear Father God,
I feel so unsteady today, I feel as if I have no footing and that I am ready to fall. I ask for Your continual presence in my life. I know Lord that when I reach and grasp for Your hand, I must let go of the other things I am holding tightly to. I know You have designed me to need You moment by moment. As my awareness of my neediness for You increases I become more steady. I seek Your face Father and I approach you with a teachable spirit. Help me build a discipline of connecting with you daily just like I use my computer, cell phone, texting, and phone regularly.
I pray in the steady name of Jesus – AMEN
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
And they were calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.”
We live by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.
