There is only one secure foundation: a genuine, deep relationship with Jesus Christ, which will carry you through any and all turmoil. No matter what storms are raging all around, you'll stand firm if you stand on His love.
New International Version (NIV)
2 I will stand at my watch
and station myself on the ramparts;
I will look to see what he will say to me,
and what answer I am to give to this complaint.[a]
With so much chaos moving around in the hemisphere one would be wise to look towards the hills from whence cometh their help and our help comes from "The Lord." Watching the skies for the advent of Jesus Christ should be our "Position." Without watchful expectation on our part, what is the sense in waiting on God for help? There will be no help without it. If we ever fail to receive strength and protection from Him, it is because we have not been looking for it. Heavenly help is often offered yet goes right past us. We miss it because we are not standing in the tower, carefully watching the horizon for evidence of its approach, and then are unready to throw the gates of our heart open so it may enter. The person who has no expectations and therefore fails to be on the alert will receive little help. Watch for God in th events of your life.
There is an old saying:& quote;They who watch for the providence of God will never lack the providence of God to watch for." And we could turn the saying around as well and say, "They who never watch for the providence of God to watch for." Unless you put the water jars out when it rains, you will never collect the water. We need to be more businesslike and use common sense with God in claiming His promises. If a man were to go to the bank several times a day, lay his check at the teller's window, and then pick it up without cashing it, it would not be long before the bank would have him ordered from the premises.
People who go to the bank have a purpose in mind. They present their check, recieve their cash, and then leave, having transacted real business. They do not lay their check on the counter, discuss the beauty of the signature, and point out the lovely design on it. No, they want to receive money for their check and will not be satisfied without it. These are the people who are always welcome at the bank, inlike those who simply waste the teller's time.
Unfortunatelty, a great many people also play at praying. They do not expect God to give them an awnser, so they simply squander their prayer time. Our heavenly Father desires us to transact real business with Him in our prayers, our having faith, our loving as He loves us, in our standing out post with watchful expectations. He expects us to love Him enough to know that without faith it is impossible to please Him. I am going through the time of my life right now. I feel as if The Lord is sleeping sometimes while I am combating this storm. But when I read His promises, I get stirred up to have faith again. That is why I stay in the word and around like minded people. I beleive you and I will survive, He is able.
The walls of your trials have been given to you because He wants you to man them with faith. Beleive it will get better.God is providing for us right now. You may feel alone, O' but God. Stand your post with expectation family. It's going to get better for you and me and for this world that seems to be winning the battle. Don't let your natural dictate your hope, your peace, your joy. The clouds have moved and we will make it through, it's already done in Jesus name Amen!!!
