The Lord Just…IS

He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; He led him about, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye. As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock; Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape (Deut 32:10-14)~~ The Lord will lead us to places where we are seemingly hemmed in, where all our ingenious solutions have failed, and where we finally understand that our best option is to trust Him in a way that we ordinarily wouldn’t. In such places, He keeps us and provides for us by HIS hand…and we are highly motivated to trust Him as He brings us through conquest over our spiritual enemies, sin, Satan, and the world; in and through Christ. We have safety and triumph in Him; we are given happy frames of soul, and through Him we are above the world, and the things of it. The Lord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked came against me To eat up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell. Though an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident (Ps 27:1-3). God is my revelation: He has shown me things I’ve never seen and thing I’ve already seen in ways I’ve never seen them; God is my salvation: He has brought me out of many situations – from death to life – from trial to triumph – from frustration to favor; God is my vindication: He makes the tactics of the enemy stumble and fall – without the need of action or retaliation from me – He declares His vengeance and guides me to simply abide in Him – trust in Him – worship Him; God is my preservation: He constantly keeps me when I should have fallen – He grants victory in the face of defeat – When one thing seems like it should be, God IS; The Lord God is my stabilization: I will stand on the solid, steadfast, unmoveable foundation He provides. There is no instance that God cannot control, no pain He cannot soothe, no sorrow He cannot heal. The Lord IS my shepherd, I shall not want! #Jireh
