A wise man built his house upon a rock and the rain came tumbling down.The rain came down and the floods went up and the house on the rock stood firm . How often as children at Sunday school , we sang these very words and now as adults live this very promise .
A promise of certainty of Godís nature who is unchanging and is the same yesterday,today and forever more.It is a promise of hope in the midst of turmoil , a promise of safety in times of fear , a promise of love in times of rejection and a promise of companionship in times of loneliness.Wisdom is gaining access into the very heart of God.The heart of God depicts that upon this rock,he will build his church and the gates of hell with not prevail against it.That rock which is Christ Jesus is your sure foundation when your entire world goes crash ,boom, bang. The uncertainty of times is a parallel contrast to the certainty of God.Emmanual,God is with us and we will still stand.
Romans 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Height , depth,nor other creature all refer to the very limitations that govern life in this world but Godís word here is eliminating all of these boundaries to guarantee us of his unfailing measure of extreme love .I believe the world is made up of many people looking for love. I believe many are rejected by their very own and feel love is an estranged emotion.I believe the world has many people who have suffered a crash , boom ,bang experience that shattered the very epitome of all they worked for .Today when you make God your world ,no upheaval or shift will alter your ground.
You will still stand , you will still rise above ,you will still soar ,you will still have hope ,you will still have joy,you will still have peace and you will still be the victor. You will walk and shall not faint ,you will run and not grow weary and you will rise up with wings as eagles.I am amazed at how when nests are torn apart by storms,birds rebuilt and move on.
There is no certainty of anything these days.Mankind sees no value in life,marriage,family,morality and relationships so when else around us is uncertain ,God is certain.God does not forget about us or even miss us out.He knows the very hairs that are on our head.He knows our name and the very blueprint of our life.He causes us to be immovable. Do not lose heart or grow impatient or even weary,God acts in his own time.Be sure of your foundation because in the beating of the storm and the drenching of the floods, arise and shine for the glory of God is upon you.
Crash,boom,bang and the house on the rock stood firm.
