Archives For Stability

Person build houseAs we enter another year there is at least one word many people would love to see describe 2013. That is the word stability.

Think about it. One of the chief concerns of the Federal Reserve is stable prices.  Of course, I’m sure we all want stable prices. But we want even more.

We want stable….

Marriages

Income

Emotions

Finances

Relationships

Families

Jobs

And the list goes on.  But what’s the secret to being blessed with stability? When building a house it is typical to brace walls until they are securely fastened to other walls. Otherwise they are susceptible to wind.

However, for us as individuals what is the secret to stability in our lives? What is it that makes us “blessable” regarding stability?

Let me suggest that it is related to your attitude towards the Bible.

Psalm 1:1-4 (NASB)  “How blessed is the man….his delight is in the law of the LORD…He will be like a tree firmly planted by the streams of water…in whatever he does, he prospers…the wicked are not so, But they are like chaff which the wind drives away.”

2013 may brings all sorts of storms and disruptions into your life.  While the winds may blow into your life, decide right now as the New Year starts, that this year you will delight in the Word of God. You may be pleasantly surprised by the stability you experience in 2013.
