Stable ground...

In this culture, where it seems that having a fixed mindset about anything is thought of as narrow minded and bigoted, I'm of the opinion that having a fixed mindset on some issues can actually be crucial to your victory. God's Word tells us that a double minded man is unstable, unreliable and uncertain about everything.

I'm sure you've been around someone who's opinion is wishy washy and easily swayed by whatever they see or hear.  Their social media feed reflects their instability as they frequently jump from this band wagon to the next one.  As Jesus followers, our mindsets should be changed and transformed by Christ, not conformed to the thinking of the culture.

The enemy of our soul and the bombardment of our culture often attack us in two main areas-
the Word of God
the character of God.

  1. Oh, what a powerful word and one so very needed in these times. I want stability and am in the process of packing a house to move. No stability in that section. BUT...I do know that the Lord is with us and is my stable foundation. Thank you for this reminder, Elizabeth, and especially NOW!

    1. Thank you, Linda. Your encouragement is a blessing to me!

  2. Yes, the character of God is perfectly trustworthy. And I do have to come back to that truth time and time again. Thanks for this reminder with a beautiful image alongside it!

    1. Thank you, Michele! I'm so thankful that our God is perfectly trustworthy!

  3. Gorgeous photo! Oh, that our minds would BE fixed on Him! Thank you for these truths.

    1. Yes, to keep our mind fixed on Him and our heart yielded and tender to His Spirit is so vital!

  4. Your post brings this hymn to mind. Love singing the hymns.
    Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
    There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
    Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
    As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

    Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Great is Thy faithfulness!
    Morning by morning new mercies I see.
    All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
    Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

    Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
    Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
    Join with all nature in manifold witness
    To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.


    Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
    Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
    Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
    Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

    1. Such beautiful, true, and uplifting words!

  5. We sang that hymn yesterday at church. I love that line "no shadow of turning!"

    1. The fact that there is no shadow of turning, no darkness in the character of God, is so comforting!
