2020-09-20 - Stability
Written for Friday Evening
Last night, the remnants of Hurricane Sally passed over our house. We had so much rain that our rain gauge overflowed at five inches. We did not have to worry about the stability of our house, because it had been so well-built. We watched the care of the builder during the construction of our house several years ago.
What about the stability of our spiritual lives? Do we have firm foundations? Will we be able to withstand the rain and storms of life? Have we put our lives into God’s care?
Jesus talked about our spiritual foundation in Luke 6:47-49, in the story of the wise and foolish builders. He described a firm foundation, saying, “I will show you what he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them into practice. He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. (NIV)
Storms come to all of our lives. Have we lain our foundations on the solid rock of Jesus?
