Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. (Matthew 7:24, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
When we have rock-solid faith, we wont be moved by whats happening around us. We have peace in our hearts and minds because our hope is in God. We have an attitude that says: Im not moved by this medical report. I respect and honor people that are trying to help me, but I know God can do what medical science cannot do. God made my body. Im not moved by the economy, the stock market, my job situation. I know God supplies all of my needs. He promised He would prosper me even in a recession. Im not moved by how my children are acting. Im not stressed out because theyre off course, making poor choices. I know its only a matter of time. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
Friend, thats unshakeable faith. Thats building your house on a rock-solid foundation. When the storms of life come, you wont be moved. How do you stay rock solid? By meditating on the Word of God and following His commands. Its that simple. Instead of making your circumstances the focus, you make God the focus and stand strong and secure in Him! Today, make spending time with God your number one priority and learn to stay rock solid in Him!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your Word which is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I choose to hide Your Word in my heart. I choose to meditate on Your promises. I know that You are faithful to Your Word and thank You for rock-solid faith as I keep my heart and mind focused on You in Jesus name. Amen.
