Am I stable?

“Thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel.”

Genesis 49:3,4.

Stability is not a matter of age or how long you have been a Christian (Reuben was the firstborn; older than the rest, but he was unstable). It is not a matter of how dignified, powerful and mighty you are. Being strong is not equal to being stable.

Stability is the ability to be stable.

You are stable when you can renew your mind.

You are stable when you can allow God to work on your heart without getting offended or tired.

You are stable when you are willing to learn and unlearn.

You are stable if you can sing when you don’t feel like; pray when you don’t feel like; work when you don’t feel like; study the Word when you don’t feel like; serve when you don’t feel like; sacrifice when you know there is nothing in return……..

You are stable when you are ready within and without season.

You are stable when you learn to move against the big wave.

You are stable when you are consistent, persistent and insistent.

You are stable when you have grown above small talk and petty business.

You are stable when your decisions aren’t dictated by emotions.

You are stable if you can separate yourself unto God.

You are stable when what interests you is what God loves. 

Water assumes the shape of the container that carries it.

But it immediately meanders when poured.

It loses stability as the elements without works on it.

It is swallowed by the earth never to be seen again.

It evaporates and its identity forgotten. 

It vanishes into thin air.

It is hard to be stable. But it is possible to be stable. I pray that we become stable.
