We live in a time where many things are available to distract us. Situations arise which attempt to bring fear, doubt, worry and confusion to our hearts and minds. This is the perfect moment to practice calm. According to the American Heritage Dictionary, the definition of the word calm is 1. Nearly or completely motionless; undisturbed. 2.Not excited or agitated; composed.
I envision a lake where the wind is blowing fiercely, however there are no waves or ripples. It looks as though it were a mirror reflecting the sun. That would be a miracle. Well, let’s consider our own situation (s). When the winds of our lives blow we actually have the ability, through God, to be just as that placid lake.
Psalm 16:8 8 I have set the LORD always before me; Because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved.(NKJV)
Here’s another version of that same scripture:
Psalm 16:8 8 He is ever present with me;at all times He goes before me. I will not live in fear or abandon my calling because He stands
at my right hand. (The Voice)
Yes, difficult circumstances will occur from time to time. (Psalm 34:19 The righteous person faces many troubles, but the LORD comes to the rescue each time. NLT)
We don’t have to be moved by our circumstances. We can choose to hold onto His hand and steady our course. We can keep our composure and allow the reflection of the Son to be seen in us. It may seem to others that we are completely unaffected by whatever the circumstance may be. That’s when we become the miracle.
