Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
You’ve heard those questions which ask, “Do you remember back when if you had a quarter, you could go see a movie and have enough left over for a hot dog and a Coke?” Probably, there are only a few of us left who could truthfully answer that we do – I confess, I would be one of them.
We’re all living in a world that is changing so rapidly we cannot take it all in. Allen Toffler explored that in his best selling book, Future Shock. He defined the condition as, “That sense of dizzy disorientation that occurs due to the sudden and premature arrival of the future.” Perhaps that explains why we are feeling the way we do.
The Prophet Isaiah describes it in these words, found in chapter 24:19, 20; The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.
What can we hold onto in times like these? Isaiah answers again with these words, The grass withers, the flower fades: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. (Isaiah 40:8). The book of Hebrews calls it “an anchor to the soul.”
But in these rapidly changing times, if you are going to be able to let the Word of the Lord anchor your soul, you will have to know it.
