Bouncing Right Back

Through the victories you gave, his glory is great;
    you have bestowed on him splendor and majesty.
Surely you have granted him unending blessings
    and made him glad with the joy of your presence.
For the king trusts in the Lord;
    through the unfailing love of the Most High
    he will not be shaken. Psalm 21:5-7

What shakes you or has shaken you in the past? It’s an odd question I admit but I think we all have things and events that have shaken us. Perhaps a death in the family or of a loved one. Perhaps a similar tragedy.

The Bible is filled with people who were shaken by circumstances only to bounce right back after realizing that the God who is supposed to be in control of things is actually in control!

I think it would be dishonest of me to suggest that real world events don’t rock our world from time to time. Fortunately, though, we can lean, stand on, and rely on the Rock of This World in those times. We may stagger at times but our faith in the Rock of Ages is secure and unwavering. The sooner we reach out, the sooner we regain equilibrium.

    not an odd question at all Dave….there have been far less instances I have needed to bounce back from because I know that God is in control….don’t get me wrong…I don’t mean to say that I have not had some rough roads to walk in my life…it just seems like there have been less times where I have felt I had to do any bouncing at all…does that make any sense? Good read!
