Steady & Strong

AnchorThere are several synonyms for steady. The dictionary gives several words when defining this word: consistent, firmly fixed, supported, balanced, not shaking or moving, not wavering, controlled. This is a really big word that carries a lot with it. As I look at this “laundry list” of words that help define the word steady, I’m reminded that is really is a good characteristic to cultivate in my life. King David would be considered pretty steady in his journey. The Psalms often serve as a diary of sorts. Check this out…

 1 Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?

    Who may live on your holy mountain?
2 The one whose walk is blameless,

    who does what is righteous,

    who speaks the truth from their heart;
3 whose tongue utters no slander,

    who does no wrong to a neighbor,

    and casts no slur on others;
4 who despises a vile person

    but honors those who fear the Lord;

who keeps an oath even when it hurts,

    and does not change their mind;
5 who lends money to the poor without interest;

    who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things

    will never be shaken. (Psalm 15:1-5 NIV)

 

I believe that to be steady, I need to be grounded and secured in the Word of God. He anchors me when it gets windy. He gives can provide steadiness to my weak and wobbly knees.  I believe that being anchored to the Word of God can give consistency to my everyday walking around lifeBeing anchored to the Word not only makes me steady, but it adds great strength to my inner being. I can process and possess strength in times of what appears to be weakness. He not only helps me to be steady; He also provides great strength. Being anchored to Him and His Word is the biggest game changer in my life.
