The Stability Of The Lord


"And He will be the stability of your times, a wealth of salvation, wisdom and knowledge" (Isa.33:6).

If today's verse looks familiar, you win the prize... It is the same one that I used yesterday. The KJV version changes it just a bit..."And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation; the fear of the LORD is his treasure." Lets take a look at the wisdom and knowledge thing first. Wisdom and knowledge can help us to face life. They can help us handle the good times as we should. Sometimes, when things are going well for us, we tend to think that we got there all by ourselves and forget to include God in our successes. Then of course, there are those times in life that we might call hardships or pitfalls. It is a bit easier to look for help in these times, and the Lord can come to our aid by guiding and protecting us. "For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity" (Prov.2:6-7). Verses 6-22 of this chapter from the Book of Proverbs would be good ones to read and meditate upon today. They supply a rich wealth of information about handling the down times of life. In the next chapter of Proverbs, we find some more sound advice.. "Keep sound wisdom and discretion, so they will be life to your soul and an adornment to your neck. Then you will walk in your way securely and your foot will not stumble" (3:21-23). God is always ready to provide wisdom to those that are willing to look to Him for it.... The other part of today's verse that is vital to us is about the strength or wealth of salvation. Our true ace in the hole is knowing that in Him we have a place of eternal life when this one on earth is over. It becomes easier for us to face the turmoil of life when we know that the Lord will save us into eternity. The apostle Paul's writings are full of the wonderful hope of salvation he owned, and his attitude made that hope prolific for us. Indeed, the Lord will provide us with wisdom, knowledge, and salvation to provide the stability we need for our times.... They imbue us with a great wealth and strength...

Have a wonderful day... Make a difference... Love mark Phil.4:11
