NOVEMBER- RESTING IN HIM

I shall lift my eyes to the hills; from where will come my helper? My help is from Lord Jehovah, he who made Heaven and Earth!

The world is insane. God gave us stewardship of the Earth, and collectively, we have done poorly. We have issues, and we need someone to solve them.

Regardless of politics, race, creed, or ethnicity, we can blindly point in any direction and see a massive threat—economic, political, environmental, social. We have conflicting views, interests, and worries that fuel our fears and our activism. Most problems are big, complex tangles of black, white, and infinite shades of grey, which require big, complex solutions.

It’s crazymaking.

During this political season, it is almost impossible to lift up your head and see hope. But that’s what we’re called to do.

Chained prisoners will be set free. They will not die in prison. They will not go without food. I am the LORD your God who stirs up the sea and makes its waves roar. My name is the LORD of Armies. I put my words in your mouth and sheltered you in the palm of my hand. I stretched out the heavens, laid the foundations of the earth, and said to Zion, “You are my people.”

We must seek shelter in Him. We must find our hope in Him. We must rest in Him.

This is not a call to inaction or a fatalistic “the world is going to pot, what’s a little more oil poured in the ocean going to matter?” approach to life. We’re called to be stewards, and we’re called to be Christ-like.

This month is a call to confront your problems without worry. To know they can be solved. To know they pale in comparison to the power of our God. The process is as important as the outcome. Preparation in a prayer closet is required before pounding the pavement. We are called to action, but our first action must be to call upon the Lord.

Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.
In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat — for He grants rest to those He loves.
