Solid Rock Foundation
Matthew 7:24 Therefore whoever heareth these sayings of Mine, and doeth them, I will liken him to a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.
Friend, we all need a Solid Foundation. Otherwise the ways of the world will knock us around, storms will overtake us and lightning will destroy us.
This life brings afflictions and strife of all kinds. Just when we think things could get no worse, along comes something to show us that evil is even more horrible than we imagined.
But God's Word to us is that we should be wise and build our "house" on the Solid Foundation of faith in His Son, Jesus.
There must be a reason for God to give us this information. He is not superflous in His Words to us. He is always succinct.
He says, listen to Him and gather the knowledge of what He has written by the Holy Spirit revealing to certain men whom God deemed fit to carry His Word in their hearts and follow His Lead by leaving them for future generations.
Jesus is the Solid Rock. Belief in Him and His Diety is the beginning of Knowledge and Wisdom.
When trials and sufferings come, we turn to Him in whom we have built up a great faith; in His Ability to help, and we speak the Word of God to Him, with great inner strength that knows that He will do what He has said He will do for us, in His Word.
So, it is important to know the Bible. It is a Book worth spending time reading with a heart that seeks to know Wisdom and Knowledge.
In Him we have Hope for our troubles to be given to Jesus, to be untangled and sorted. We just need the belief that He brings all things together for good for us; in His timing and for His great pleasure.
Stand on the Solid Rock Foundation and never let the winds and stormy seas move you from your belief that He will finish the good work that He has begun in you. Be the willing soul. Do not be afraid of what man can do to you, but of what a Holy and All Powerful God must do to an unbelieving soul when it stands beefore Him at the Judgement, having been against Almighty God, it's whole life.
Now is the acceptable time for you to stand on the Solid Rock Foundation and begin to read His Word.
