Recently Stan and I have had an ongoing conversation about how true faith needs to be lived in the indicative mood, not the imperative mood (see previous blog). It’s not about what I should be doing, or what more I can do, or cannot do, but who He is that determines how I live.
If my understanding of Him is correct the only response is to bow down in worship and praise.
These indicative statements make me want to bow and worship the One who holds the stars and planets in place and holds me as I learn to walk and stand again.
Allow me to share some of the indicatives or truth statements that have brought life to me during these difficult days of recovery.
- In an unstable world, You, O Lord, are the Rock of Ages.
- The wind and the waves still know His name.
- I will stand my ground where hope can be found.
- The Lord stood at my side and gave me strength (II Tim 4:17). This means so much as I learn how to stand and walk again.
- Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above (James 1:17)
- His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning (Lam 3:22-23)
- Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life (Psalm 23:6).
- He is my shelter, my refuge, my fortress (Psalm 91).
- My help comes from the Lord who made heaven and earth (Psalm 121:2).
- He is before all things and in Him all things hold together (Col 1:17). My daughter, Elisabeth reminded me recently that this included me….He holds even my broken body together.
What about you? Any indicative or truth statements that have been ministering to you recently? If so, please feel free to encourage and bless us all by sharing one (or more) of them in the comments section below.
