The Waves

 

"Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'"

Isaiah 41:10 [NKJV]

 

When we go to the beach, we get comfortable in the light waves.

They roll in and out gently. We relax and take it all in.

But when the waves become rough, we run to the safety of the shoreline. We get out of the water and watch from the shore.

 

Don't do that with your relationship with God.

Yes, it's easy when everything is going well.

The waves are light. We are comfortable.

But when things get tough, when things are about to break,

When things are about to change and transform,

we want to run away.

 

There will be rough waves.

He wants us to stay in those rough waves.

Put your trust in Him. His eyes are upon us.

He will protect us. He will strengthen us. He will help us.

He promised that and He is a God of His Word.

 

"The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble. And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You."

Psalm 9:9-10 [NKJV]
