I’m back on schedule today. A couple days ago I wrote about digging out the last of a root system which has been remnants of a past life yet it still wants to infiltrate my current life. Every once in a while it rears its ugly head and it takes me awhile to get it back in its place–surrendered and given to Jesus so it doesn’t take root again. This morning as I was reading my bible I came across an insert which Joyce Meyers writes in regards to what David had written in Psalms 62:8. The verse says, “Trust in, lean on, rely on, and have confidence in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is a refuge for us.”
After reading the chapter I read what Joyce had written. She says in part, “It is easy to trust God when things are going well. But when things are not going well, we develop character by trusting God in our difficult situations. And the more character we develop, the more our ability can be released. That is why I say that stability releases ability. The more stable we become, the more our ability will be released because God will know that He can trust us.”
I love this message Joyce writes–stability releases ability. Stability doesn’t mean that all trials and temptations are gone. It means we know what to do with them and we do it. These old torments of mine want to have me believing old lies. Well, I know what to do with them and I Praise God for providing us the confidence in Him at all times regardless of what the day brings.
