The winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. Matthew 7:25
There are days and weeks in our lives when it feels like the world is literally falling to pieces around us. Ever feel like there’s nothing to prevent you from falling into the rubble along with everyone else? An insurmountable pile of bills; an impending job layoff; unpleasant news from the doctor; an unexpected pregnancy. How can anyone endure such times as these?
When lives crumble like stale Christmas cookies, where can we turn? There is One solid foundation that will never crumble. Jesus grounds us. Jesus fortifies us. Jesus strengthens us. Jesus secures us against a dissolving worldview that only ends in pain by taking our hand, walking us to safety, and placing us on rock-solid ground. Ground that cannot be shaken. As fragments of a faltering world threaten to do you damage, He shields you from their ugly effects.
Jesus, secure me in your presence. Amen.
