In the world but not of it

Great confidence…

God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble. So we will not fear when earthquakes come and the mountains crumble into the sea. Let the oceans roar and foam. Let the mountains tremble as the waters surge! Psalm 46:1-3

The sovereignty of God in all things is an unfailing ground for consolation; he rules and reigns whatever happens, and therefore all is well. Spurgeon

I was standing in a high-rise building one day high enough to have a great view of the city skyline and close enough to the clouds above to get a view you just can’t get from the ground.

As I stood staring out the window I noticed the clouds like never before. They were moving with such grace at an even-tempered speed all in unison. They looked like they were this vast army steadily marching across the sky towards their specific purpose. To explain this is difficult with words but the imagery that came to my mind gave me a sense of peace and confidence. These clouds looked confident in their march yet they did not seem stressed or anxious to me.

A few hours later in the day I came back and took another look. It was the same. The clouds were still marching with confidence. “So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us” (Hebrews 6:18).

Today we can begin to march through life in rest and in confidence that the Lord has gone before us, He has prepared the way and “our” way and He knows what lies ahead. I don’t need to fear the land mines of life, rather I can trust and move with a purpose…
