Get Down!

Worthy Christian Devotions » Doubt » Get Down!

Isaiah 26:3 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

The captain of a submarine was once asked, "How did the terrible storm last night affect you?" The officer looked at him in surprise and exclaimed, "Storm? We didn't even know there was one!"

There is an area beneath the surface of the ocean known to sailors as the "cushion of the sea". In this place, although the ocean may be raging terribly above, the waters here are never stirred.

I think you know where I'm going with this. There is a place, a wonderful place, we can go to find refuge during the frightening storms raging above us -- a place where we don't feel a thing -- no fear, no worry for tomorrow.

Let's get down there today. Let's find that perfect peace the Lord intends for every one who trusts in Him. There's so much work to be done!

  1. This is so needful for me this day. My husband lost his job Friday, I am in fear of also being laid off, we are in our 50s but no money to retire on. My daughter with three children (divorced) had her house burn up in a fire a week before Christmas, many other family trials this past month have caused me to feel so alone, when, as a Christian I know I am NOT alone. I so much need to dwell on these words and find that "cushion of the sea" in Jesus. Jesus, I thank you for placing my eyes upon these very words and finding this site for me to read and please Jesus, help me find my way out of this dark pit I am in.

  2. I needed this too. I suddenly became ill over the weekend & what was supposed to be a lovely end to a few romantic days away with my husband ended with me in tears & agony in a hospital emergency department. I'm having tests & seeing a medical specialist urgently next week (it's normally over a months wait). It could all have been something temporary & not sinister. I'm yet to find out & I'm trying so much not to worry. Our entire family has been attacked on a spiritual level for the last couple of months. One thing after another, like a rollercoaster. Even our cat lost her left eye. Anyway, I have been rocked by what is going on with me healthwise. I don't want to grieve God by not trusting him. I don't want to be thinking about this all day. So, I'm in bed with my phone. And I ended up here. And I've prayed for the 1st commenter.
