Stability or Adventure?
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
they are ever praising you.
Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.
- Psalm 84:4-5
According to Psalm 84, there’s a blessing for those who in seasons of stability and rootedness - “those who dwell in God’s house,” and there’s a blessing for those who adventure out in new ways - “whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.” They may seem like opposites, but God values both and blesses both. Often, there are different parts of our lives that reflect both.
Where in your life are you feeling solid and strong right now? Take some time to praise God for that.
Where in your life are you taking risks and seeking forward movement in your faith? Ask God to be your strength.
