In this that we call “the natural” world, gravity is our primary anchor.
Gravity holds us to the earth. Gravity keeps us from being slung about and from being hurled into outer space as the earth spins at its phenomenal speeds. It was God Who prepared it that way to protect us.
In “the natural” world of the spirit God is our Anchor.
Even when it seems that the circumstances of our natural earth life are spinning so violently out of control, He can be trusted to keep us standing as surely as the gravity that holds us to the spinning ball called Earth.
Faith is the line of confidence by which we tie ourselves to His hand, confidently assured that absolutely nothing is beyond His control. We never worry about being hurled into space, but we have difficulty trusting the God Who made the gravity. Who understands it?
Is it not apparent that we trust gravity without question? I do not wear a ball and chain on my feet so that I won’t float about or get hurled into something. Do you? But do you and do I trust God in the same manner?
All these statements are nothing more than theory until we experience the sense of security that we find in trusting God to be there, to be engaged, and to care that good prevails.
I know from experience about those times when life is all out of focus and even when it seems that everything is spinning out of control, when Worry has had my head in a vice-grip and Worry’s Twin, Fear, is sticking needles into my heart, when I have no recourse except to call out to God and then to find that just like the Law of Gravity, God has the Laws of His Promises working every bit as effectively.
We tend to look to the things our eyes "see" to gain the confidence we need. We never wonder about gravity, which by the way we cannot see.
In looking with our natural eyes we may not see the situation under control at the moment, however, we should know that if we are praying and looking to God that He is then certainly engaged.
Can anything go wrong when God is in charge?
Our part is to call out to God in prayer and then to know that He, having been invited into our situation, is more than prepared to intervene and to act in our behalf.
As certainly as Gravity is engaged to hold us to the earth, so is God prepared and willing to hear us when we call to Him. He takes care of us all the time but He responds even more strongly when we ask of Him to protect and to preserve us, to bless us and to improve us.
“If you have a need, then ask your Father which is in Heaven.” It is God’s natural response to reward you openly.”
We can trust God in all things. It must be so because He said so.
“Trust Me.” You will, as did Martha at Lazarus’ tomb, find that I have a plan that never entered your mind.”
Praises to Awesome God!
