Regaining Our Balance

For the last few years, my wife, Marlene, has suffered from inner-ear problems that cause her to lose her equilibrium. Without warning, something inside her ear is upset and she becomes dizzy. If she tries to sit or stand, a condition called vertigo makes that impossibleóand she has to lie down. No amount of effort can compensate for the power of the inner ear to disrupt and disturb. An active person, Marlene finds these unwelcome episodes frustrating.

Sometimes life is like that. Something unexpected upsets our routine, and we are knocked off-balance. Perhaps itís bad news about our job being eliminated or disturbing test results from our doctor. It may even be an attack from our spiritual enemy. In each case, our emotional equilibrium is hammered, and we feel as if we canít stand.

Those moments should cause us to turn to God. When we feel we are losing our balance, He can help. He provides spiritual resources to help us stand. Paul says, ďTake up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to standĒ (Eph. 6:13).

When life knocks us off our feet, we donít have to be frustrated. With Godís strength lifting us up and Godís armor protecting us, we can still stand strong.

With patience in His love Iíll rest,
And whisper that He knoweth best,
Then, clinging to that guiding hand,
A weakling, in His strength Iíll stand. óPentecost

We can endure anything if we depend on God for everything.
