Build On The Rock

"The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat
against that
house; yet it did not fall, because it had it’s foundation on the
Rock."
Matthew 7:25 NIV

Build On The Rock

A few days ago I was watching the news about a rare tornado this time
of year. 
A group of people had taken refuge in a church.  When the tornado came,
it
destroyed that church, but none of the people were harmed, and the
foundation of
the building stood strong.  Seeing this, brought Matthew 7:25 to mind,
as it
does today.  How God is our protector in the midst of storms.

Life has sure changed for me with facing challenges each day with pain
and
fatigue.  Floods of uncertainty come and the storms of medical bills
and
emotions of trying to sort through it all.  I cannot face all of this
alone. 
But I can find protection and peace and rest in my Lord and Savior.
  Through His
grace, love and His word, I build upon Him.  He is my rock and fortress
against
all the storms that come my way.

Christ is our rock today.  We can build on Him as the only foundation.
  Are you
resting on Christ?  You can!  Come to Him and rest in Him.  You can
build upon
Him and have a life of peace.  He will protect us from the storms that
come. 
Each of us face those floods and winds in many ways.  With a
relationship with
Christ, we are no longer alone.  When pain and fatigue pushes upon us
through
the day, we can turn to Him in prayer for strength and rest.  He will
calm our
hearts and minds.  Taking our fears because He is our rock, our
foundation.  Our
flesh is weak, and life’s storms can beat on us in mighty waves.  But
through
the pain and the struggles we have a Savior who will hold back the
floods.  Our
foundation will remain strong when built upon Him.  He is our Rock!!

Heavenly Father,
I pause now so that you can quiet my heart and mind amongst the storms
of life. 
Allowing me to hear Your voice, which brings all that we need each day.
  Thank
you for being my Savior, my foundation and strength.   Amen
