You will keep whoever’s mind is steadfast in perfect peace, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever; for in the LORD, the LORD, is an everlasting Rock. For he has brought down those who dwell on high, the lofty city. He lays it low. He lays it low even to the ground. He brings it even to the dust.
God is an everlasting Rock. He is the firm foundation on which we can build our future. He can give you peace no matter the circumstance. Out of money? God owns the universe and will provide what you need in His perfect timing. Scared of the future? God is already there. He knows the thousands of paths you can take and will help you find the right ones. Fearful of death? Jesus has already conquered Satan and death on the cross.
God will bring down those who dwell on high. One example in the Bible is of King Nebuchadnezzar in the book of Daniel. Nebuchadnezzar was the first man to make a large empire in the Middle East. He controlled the majority of the known world and had numerous nations that gave him tribute. He built beautiful cities and built a huge system of gardens throughout his palace for his wife who missed her jungle home.
God gave a warning through Daniel to Nebuchadnezzar that he should acknowledge God as the giver of power and glory. Nebuchadnezzar heeded the warning for a little while. But one day he gazed over his magnificent city and said, “Is this not a great city that I have built, by my power.” In that moment God judged Nebuchadnezzar. For seven years, Nebuchadnezzar became like a wild beast, eating straw and unable to reason or speak. God took the most powerful, influential, richest man in the world and made him as a cow.
God is the surest thing in this world. Trust in Him. Build on the eternal Rock today.
