Using Periods to Silence the Question Marks..

Good Morning Gorgeous,It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start. A new day to rise with the security and rock of the truth of the Lord. It is there that you can find firm, solid ground. It is on the solid rock of Christ that you can grip the ground and stand firm against the pummeling of any storm.

I have posted about the value of changing and solidifying our belief systems by speaking I am statements backed by scripture. I have also shared the value of speaking aloud You are statements about the truths we know about God.

But Beth Moore said it perfectly in her bible study titled The Quest.

She said not to put question marks where God has already placed a period. Things that have a period in the bible are statements. They are truth. We can take God right at His Word every single time.

And in scripture, these are truths that we can cling to for solid ground when we are surrounded by a sea of question marks.

Why is this happening?

Why is this happening to me?

How could this be?

What should I do?

How can I regain my footing?

What is next?

How could God let this happen?

How do I answer the tough questions my kids are asking?

How will I provide for my family amidst a job loss?

What if someone I love gets sick?

What do I say when someone close to me is hurting?

These are just the tip of the iceberg of questions that can flood our minds.

One way to stay grounded on solid rock through a storm of questions is to remember that there are hundreds of periods you can speak right back to the questions.

God is faithful. Period.

God loves you completely, fully, and unconditionally. He even loved you while you were still a sinner. His love is NOT based on your performance. Period.

God will always be there with you in every valley low and every mountaintop high. Period.

God is for you. Period.

God is the beginning and the end. Period.

God has planned you, purposed you, and has a good plan for your future. Period.

God celebrates you. Period.

You can find rest in Him. Period.

You can place your hope in God. Period.

You can be still amidst chaos because He is God. Period.

The Lord is goooood. Period.

God will never ever leave you or forsake you. Period.

If we can speak truth with complete and total assurity, then the questions won’t seem so scary.

There will always be unknowns on this side of heaven, but the knowns about God can be our solid rock, our firm grip. The periods in the bible can be our certains in uncertain times.

And these are just a FEW. You can search and find hundreds, even thousands more truths of God that you could place a period after. And the best part is after a whole lifetime of searching for the truths of God, there would still be even more to discover about His goodness and His character. There would be more periods to uncover.

So amidst ALL the questions of the day, I challenge you to start speaking back in periods.

Dear Heavenly Father, Remind us afresh of the truths we need to cling to during uncertain times. Make the ground under our feet SOLID rock grounded in the UNCHANGING truth of Your Word.

In Jesus’s name, Amen.
