Grace For The Journey
For all those who have spent any time at “rock bottom,” I promise you today’s blog will be a source of great comfort and encouragement for you.
The Bible says in Deuteronomy 33:27, “The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say ‘Destroy!”
If the eternal God is your dwelling place, then when you find yourself at rock bottom, know this:
You are still standing on the Rock – and His name is Jesus Christ.
No matter how far you fall, His everlasting arms will be there to catch and hold you. You cannot fall so far that He is not still underneath you. The Savior is your support, regardless of the circumstances in which you find yourself.
- Are you under the weight of financial misfortune? He is underneath you still.
- Are you under the weight of trouble at the office? He is underneath you still.
- Are you under the weight of sickness and disease? He is underneath you still.
- Are you under the weight of difficulties in your marriage? He is underneath you still.
- Are you under the weight of rebellious children? He is underneath you still.
- Are you under the weight of the snares of sin? He is underneath you still.
God’s arms never grow tired or weary, but continually provide strength and support. As someone has said, “When you find yourself as low as you can possibly go, you can rest in Him, because you are eternally sustained in His everlasting arms.”
The blessing of rock bottom is to know that you are still standing on the Rock.
When you feel you are at your lowest, He is there, holding you up with His everlasting arms. He provides comfort and strength for every battle you face. When the flesh takes you low, He is lower still. When the devil takes you under, He is underneath. When the world takes you down, He is down under!
What a promise for the child of God, that there is no sinking past our Savior! The Bible says in Romans 8:38-39, “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
There is safety even in the grave, if you are a born-again, adopted child of God. The grave cannot hold you, because His everlasting arms are underneath the grave, doing two things at once: preventing us from going further down and propelling us into the presence of our Lord!
