Morning Prayer, Tuesday, June 28, 2016 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: STRONG FOUNDATIONS
Father God, there were times when I was building on me, but I'm thankful that I realized in order for it to last, I had to building on You my solid rock. Amen
Matthew 7:24-27 and Mark 8:36
“A house must be built on solid foundations if it is to last. The same principle applies to man, otherwise he too will sink back into the soft ground and becomes swallowed up by the world.” Years ago, during my search to find the perfect house for me, one of the things that I discovered was no matter how beautiful the house looked, if the foundation was jacked up, it would not last. We can build our lives on careers, marriages, money and wealth but if we have not built it on Christ we will find over time that we are walking on sinking sand. For a while it seems as if you are doing okay and the enemy will allow you to think that while he chips away at you bit by bit. Sometimes, you just don't see it coming until it blindsides you. To be rich, wealthy, enjoying the good life is wonderful, but to have all that and not have Jesus would be sad. What is that Scripture, "For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul (or his mind). There are so many people in this world who have riches and wealth who are unhappy, broken, sad and discouraged. They spend most of their life trying to fill the empty space thinking more will satisfy them. It hasn't and it won't. It is all good and well to set your life on a path where you get all the good of the land but make sure you are not in that boat alone. Storms, tsunamis and hurricanes do show up. You need an anchor because people will cheer you on as long as you are on top but hit rock bottom and you will find out that men can be fickle. Thank God for those who are there with you through it all.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believed in him would not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
