We experience personal earthquakes in our lives too. An earthquake may come in the form of a divorce, a job loss, financial ruin, an illness, the death of a loved one, or broken relationships. Our world shakes, seems to crack open, and everything around us turns to rubble. Often we walk around in a shocked daze as we wonder what exactly has happened. And the aftershocks from a divorce, job loss, death, etc. can be just as devastating. Fear grabs hold of us, and we wonder if things will ever feel "normal" again.
Where do we find the calm assurance we long for during these times of turmoil? The Bible tells us our help comes from the Lord, the MAKER of Heaven and earth. Jesus speaks to us throughout the scriptures.
Be still and know that I am God...
Come unto me all ye who are heavy laden
and I will give you rest....
Have I not commanded you?
Be strong and of good courage
Be ye not terrified
For the Lord your God
is with you
wherever you go!
No matter what earthquakes and aftershocks come our way, we have God's promise to be with us. He is our solid foundation that will never crumble. "On Christ the solid rock I stand......all other ground is sinking sand."
