We must remain on track for if we get off track, God will, inevitably visit us with pain and pain immeasurable untilHe finally gets our attention, knocks some real sense into us, gets us to do the right thing, bringing us into closercommunion with Him, getting us to turn to and speak to Him as we ought, and for us to remain in that sacredcovenant space with Him in lieu of treating other things and people as more important, significant, essential, of higher priority or verily, verily more esteemed.We are constantly letting God down. We are so utterly forgetful; so dense, so small, so petty, so unwise, sodisinformed, so careless, so irresponsible, so utterly unreliable, so flimsy, so unstable, so uncertain; always lettingvice overtake us; not committed enough or persevering, helpful or true. We are in shambles, and are honestly,pathetic weaklings that are so very unimpressive, it is truly astounding God keeps forgiving us and giving in,blessing us anew and fulfilling our desires. For to be very truthful, we hurt Him and wronged Him, and He knowswe will only let Him down again once He gives us what we want. We never get it right! We never better ourselvesfor real, and stay the course. We never last for long and we never really learn. We just keep promising Him
it will be different, then we lapse right into our old ways, old sins, bad habits, vices and regular mistakes. Weare so imperfect, and hardly try to be perfect. We are so far from the mark, and
unpleasing. We are like untrue,unreliable, irresponsible friends that keep wronging us, whom we would throw out of our midst forevermoreafter a series of such affairs! Yet God keeps blessing us anew once we repent and turn to Him as though nothinghad happened. He is so much better to us than we are to Him. . .
What we need to do is to throw a curve ball to the evil one! When things are
going as we planned orwe suffer setbacks, hurting immensely, are flat broke or
in harm’s way,
or we just see no way out, we simply needto thro
w ourselves on God’s Word! We should
not panic, flinch, rush, squeal, have an anxiety attack, run about allflustered, pant uncontrollably, cry unconsolably or flail our arms about, begging for this, that or the other! Rather,we should just hold firm. We need to just sink our anchor deep in the Lord. We should study His Word intensely,and trust in it totally.
We need to fully surrender to Him. We must remember and review His promises to us,hold fast to their truths, trusting and repeating them, declaring and asserting them!. . . . . We must show God that we truly do trust Him!
