The Lord is my strength; my heart trust in him, and my shield, and I am helped. Psalm 28:7(NIV)
Christians today are sometimes like the modern car; they look great on the outside, but they cannot withstand a long haul of difficult times. Accidents total these types of cars. In the same way, when Christians face difficult times without fortification, they collapse just like the car body.
It is the framework that holds a car together. God is the framework of every Christian. He creates an impenetrable frame around us, holding all the parts of our life together as long as we stand steadfast in His love.
Obstacles are part of everyone’s life. Some are just there; others are stumbling blocks thrown in our way by Satan. When we stay within God's framework, He fortifies us. If we crash into life's barriers, the unnecessary and cumbersome parts fall away from lives, but we stand firm in His grace. He safely carries us to our destination.
It is never too late to examine our lives---to check out our frameworks' condition. If they are lightweight---failing the stress test---trade them in. Let the old frameworks pass away. God's new, solid frame will provide divine strength on life's road.
Thank you Lord for seeing me through the difficult times and the good times. Even when much of my life is crumbling around me I am surrounded by Your framework that helps me to move forward.
