Should we be happy with good when great is possible?
Thankfully God keeps stretching me. When I’m getting comfortable, He moves me to what seems like unsolid ground. The shifting sands around me, the discomfort, and unknown help me to realize that HE is underneath even that. He is the firm foundation even moving waters never dislodge.
Isaiah 54 –
Afflicted city, storm-battered, unpitied:
I’m about to rebuild you with stones of turquoise,
Lay your foundations with sapphires,
construct your towers with rubies,
Your gates with jewels,
and all your walls with precious stones.
All your children will have God for their teacher—
what a mentor for your children!
You’ll be built solid, grounded in righteousness,
far from any trouble—nothing to fear!
far from terror—it won’t even come close!
If anyone attacks you,
don’t for a moment suppose that I sent them,
And if any should attack,
nothing will come of it.
