“Foundations are important…”

^^^^^^^^^^

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine,
and acts upon them,  may be compared to a wise man,
who built his house upon the “rock”.
Matthew 7 : 24

In the physical, mental and spiritual realm,
wise people build on rock- never on sand.
The foundation Rock, Jesus Christ,
is the only place upon which to build a life.
We sing the Hymn- “My hope is built on nothing less,”
which says- “On Christ the solid Rock,
I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.”
{Hymnal  SDA- No.522}

Christ is our only hope a foundation that nothing can ever shake.
When we build our lives on Him;
the rains of stress, – sickness, – accidents, – hardship, –
privation, – injustice, – and loss of loved ones –
may jolt our lives, but we will not collapse.

And as the winds blow – winds of rejection,-
opposition, -slander, – insult, – temptation and ill treatment
– Our bodies, minds, and spirits may reel and tremble,
but we need not crumble in despair or defeat,
because our feet are planted firmly on the  “Rock of Ages.”
What is true in the physical – is also true in the spiritual.

David,- though hounded and haunted during his early life,
wrote of our Lord’s sustaining power;
“He brought me out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay;
and He set  my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.
 And he put a new song in my mouth,
a song of praise to our God; many will see and fear,
and will trust in the Lord.” {Psalms 40: 2-3}

You can have complete confidence in our ‘Rock’ of salvation.
Stand on Him all day long and all life long.
Bless His precious name. – for He will guard our ways
and lead us safely through life-
even though winds of strife will plague us as long as life lasts.

Never – build on the “sand”- where your life is not safe-
and can only be sinking sand of destruction.
