Steadfast and Immovable
"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your toil is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58
This verse popped into my head during prayer time today and I always wonder what God is trying to tell me when that happens. When I think of being steadfast and immovable I think of these majestic redwoods. I heard His gentle Spirit prodding in my mind and then it went down to my heart, which sparked emotion. So many times, I am anything but. But I want to be.....
Paul is telling us in this verse that we are to be like these trees.....rooted into the rich soil of Scripture, knowing that whatever I do for the Lord is not in vain. If I am praying, seeking Him, listening for His voice, being obedient when He speaks, then I don't have to worry if I am in His will or not.
As I dwell on these trees today my mind may be scrambled with worry over things I can't change and things that may never happen, but let me rest in your promises Lord and know they are true.
