The Rock of Ages

  • You will keep whoever's mind is steadfast in perfect peace, because he trusts in you. Trust in Yahweh forever; for in Yah, Yahweh, is an everlasting Rock. Isaiah 26:3 WEB

    How did I get caught up in this mess? Many times have I asked myself that question. Looking back, it always began with a thought, which if I did not push out of my mind, would become a desire. Before long, what started as a "harmless" thought had become a reality. For where the mind goes, the body will follow.

    Think of someone that has quit smoking years ago, but begins to think about having just one cigarette. Soon it becomes a desire. Then surprise, there is an opportunity. It all begins in the mind, and our thought life guides our future actions. In the same way, if the mind stays in the gutter, your spirit will soon be covered in slime. Your thought life is like a slippery staircase.

    When we constantly think about the troubles of tomorrow, we become anxious, fearful, worry, and may end up in tears. It robs us of our energy, time and strength. Don't let that be you; make the most of today. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34). Isaiah said that God would guard and keep in constant peace, the one whose mind is kept on Him. When you are focused on God, you will overcome the troubles of the world, and not be overcome by them.

    Nothing coming tomorrow is too difficult because nothing is impossible for God (Luke 18:27). The Lord's arm is not too short to deliver you (Numbers 11:23, Isaiah 59:1). No weapon formed against you shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17). Those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength (Isaiah 40:31). The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me? (Psalm 118:6).

    Focus on God today and what He has for you, His promises and His word. Stop worrying about tomorrow, and fight to keep your mind out of the gutter if it drifts there. God is unchanging, loving, and all-powerful, truly the Rock of Ages. He is able to take care of you, no matter how bad the situation looks, and He invented faithfulness.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father please let me see through Your eyes and get in tune with what You are doing on the earth today. I want to know You in a deeper way. I want to be filled with Your presence Lord. Give me victory in my thought life and help me to focus on You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14) ~ If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
