Show me Your ways, Lord, teach me Your paths. Guide me in Your truth and teach me, for You are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long. – Psalm 25:4-5
In the post “Step Ahead on Solid Ground”, we went through the reason for Aaron’s rod sprouting and growing almonds. It was to signify to the people God’s chosen leader and serve as a reminder to the rebellious that they would be guided in truth. That someone was in charge in pulling them together to head in the same direction.
The take away was to be encouraged by God’s Word, the indwelling Holy Spirit, and by the risen Christ who is our interceding Savior in heaven. While we patiently wait for his return, let us keep working hard and give an honest day’s work, give praise with a good attitude, and be optimistic.
The world is restless and continues to drift and change because it is built on shifting sand but our faith is on solid ground. Like the song Solid As The Rock By Avalon, our hope in Christ is eternally secure.
