For several weeks, I have shared with you on the importance of recognizing the various voices in your life. Today, I would like to speak to you on a different subject. This is establishment. “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you” (1 Peter 5:10). To be established means to make someone stable. You must understand that from this verse, suffering is not forever, it is just for a while. You must become stable and established in God financially, spiritually, and in your relationships. “And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground. And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the Lord. And the Lord appeared again in Shiloh: for the Lord revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.” (1 Samuel 3:19-21). Samuel was established to be a prophet. You can also become established in whatever you are doing. God is going to establish you. If you look at the life of David, “And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons: and they built David an house. And David perceived that the Lord had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Israel’s sake” (2 Samuel 5:11-12). God established David as a king. God wants to make you established in whatever you are doing. Whether it is to be a prophet, king, or a Christian, you must be stable and established. To be established is the will of God but it will come after you have suffered a while.
“And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.” (2 Samuel 7:12). In the Bible, we see that God established the seed of David now how much more you? There is nothing more stable than the universe and we can see it in the Bible. “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. (Psalms 24:1-2). God has created a stable universe and He is looking to also make you and I stable. We need stability in our lives. You cannot be a strong Christian, a member of a church, or in a relationship if you are not stable and established. God wants to bless you and stabilize you. In order for God to do this for you, He has to give you understanding. Understanding stabilizes a person “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not”. (Jeremiah 5:21). God does not want his people to lack understanding because understanding stabilizes you greatly. Understanding is the master key to becoming stable in something. It is only those who lack a deep understanding that become unstable. Receive the grace for understanding! Receive the grace for establishment from today!
