Have you noticed that in the midst of chaos some people just seem to have their lives move right along – fairly steady, even though the circumstances surrounding them don’t change, and those circumstances seem like they would just make you want to cry?
Well, there is a Biblical foundation that allows these individuals to stay strong. It’s not themselves! No, it’s the fact they stand on the solid Rock, Jesus Christ! “For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God?“. (2 Samuel 22:32)
Well, I know this God and “there is none holy like the Lord; there is none besides (Him); there is no rock like our God”. (2 Samuel 2:2)
Trusting that our Lord won’t move, shake, or fall out from under us is a process. He asks us to trust Him throughout His Word, not once, but many times! It’s a recurring theme with stories in the Bible. “Trust in the Lord with your whole heart, and do not lean on your own understanding“. (Proverbs 3:5)
I think the Lord knew since sin entered the world our sinful nature would bend away from Him and lean towards trying to control everything, rather, than staying on the foundation He had freely given us once we accept Him. “As you come to Him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious” (1 Peter 2:4)
So, let’s stay on our solid foundation!! “For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 3:11)
If you’ve tried building your own foundation apart from God return to the one who created you! “If we say we have fellowship with Him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth“. (1 John 1:6) So, “today if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts…” (Hebrews 3:7)
There is nothing like feeling the security of the One who cannot be shaken!!!! “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us!” (Romans 8:37)
So, “thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ“!!! (1 Corinthians 15:57)
May you have a beautiful, secure day and Memorial weekend:)!
