God will let everything around us fall apart to show us that He is all we need. Many times, without even realizing it, we can put our trust and attention in things besides the Lord. We seek comfort, peace, and rest from the world, and wonder why we end up disappointed. There is no substitute for what only God can give. Sometimes we say that in our hearts, but do not live it out. Therefore God has to let us know He really is the only One we can lean on.
God has to be your only means of support. Yes, sometimes other things and people will assist you, but it must be those that God appointed for you. God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness (2 Cor. 12:9). When everything around you seems to be falling away, do not panic, but run to God. Let God be your only support. Trust that whatever is going on is just a way of Him showing you that He is all you need. Remember all other ground is just sinking sand.
