”…you don’t have to be in a hurry….” [Isaiah 52:12 The Message]

When Christ is our focus steadiness is our leaning post.  Don’t mix up the dust of the devils distractions with God’s determined direction for your life.  To follow Christ will require wisdom and wisdom is never in a hurry.   ”No need to panic over alarms or surprises, or predictions that doomsday is just around the corner…”  [Proverbs 3:25 TM]  Remember, to follow Christ is to live the resurrected life and He equips you to live:

The path of sacrifice—His way is always above and beyond our own way. Always be willing to say as Christ said, ”…not as I will, but as You will.” [Matthew 26:39]

Prepared for whatever challenge the day may bring  ”My voice You shall hear in the morning O Lord…and I will look up” [Psalm 5:3]

People to stand with you. ”…if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.”  [Matthew 18:19]

If we are to survive the atomic age, we must have something to live by, to live on, and to live for.  We must stand aside from the world’s conspiracy of fear and hate and grasp once more the great monosyllables of life; faith, hope and love.  Men must live by these if they live at all under the crushing weight of history. [O.P. Kretzmann, D.D.]
