That does not mean that my faith walk will be dull, predictable and fossilized, but I must not be deceived into living as though constant stress, crisis, fear, guilt or chaos are somehow a required element of walking by faith.
Such difficulties will call forth the power of the kingdom in the life of the believer,
but stress and chaos are no greater opportunities for the Spirit of God than
honoring God as God,
worshipping God as King,
and obeying God as Master
in their absence as well as in their presence.
These will be the source of our joy and His glory in an eternity that will have nothing of difficulty, stress, weakness, consequences or failure in it.
“How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the fulness of Your house, and You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.”
