“And the rain fell and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock” (Matthew 7:25).

The world is constantly drowning us with its pablum.  The fickle whirlwinds of this world are always blowing against stability.  Many fall because they build their lives on temporal things.  When you build your life upon Christ, the solid rock, you are building upon the One who brought all things into being.  In Him, Who changes not, you have hope.  The world cannot give you hope because it is always changing.

Lord, I know the world is always changing and yet it never changes.  We are led around in circles that go nowhere.  Help us, Lord, to understand that You have come bringing true hope and life.  In many ways, parts of what you ask us to do are so foreign, yet, when we have applied what You have taught us, we find that we are more content and at peace.  Take away the hindrances that keep us from building our life upon You.

Lord Jesus, You have come so that we may have life and have it abundantly.  Guide me today to see that in You alone is there hope.  You have come and will lead me.  Help me, beginning this day, to begin and end each day You give me in You.  Open my mind to receive what You will teach me.  Through the Holy Spirit, bring me to those appointments You have arranged.  Help me to learn how to be a willing and obedient servant.  Amen.
