When the fast paces and troubles of life come, default is our foundation. It is our button that keeps us from “the point of no return” and being whisked away by the wiles of this world. Our default position is our gage for keeping us pliable to the lead of the Spirit right where we are in this moment, in today’s circumstances— able to stand, move, and do His will.
When everything seems to be going crazy and darkness seems to pervade every avenue…and hopelessness seems like the only available option left…what is your default?
So keep my words in your hearts and minds. Write them down and tie them on your hands as a reminder. Also tie them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home. Talk about them when you walk along the road. Speak about them when you go to bed. And speak about them when you get up (Deuteronomy11:18-19).
