Good morning! When things begin to shake around you, hold on to the Lord, your strong foundation. Enjoy today’s reading.
“24 “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.” – Matthew 7:24-25 NLT.
Brothers and sisters, let the word of God be your strong foundation. No matter what is going on around you or what others say about God, follow his teachings. Read it, believe it and live it so that when the storms of life roar, as we know they do, we will remain confident, in His teachings and we will be unmoved/unshaken. Keep your eyes focused on the Lord. Stand firm on the word.
Father God, in the name of Jesus, we come to you in prayer. Lord, we thank you for your love and peace that you give us. Lord, forgive us when we fail to keep our eyes focused on you. Lord, you know our worries and concerns, you know our financial, mental and spiritual conditions, and you know our hearts. Lord, strengthen our faith. Lord, give us your perfect peace. Lord, be our foundation in which we can stand…all other ground is sinking sand. Lord, help us and guide us today. Lord, wherever there is lack of faith, equip us with more faith. Wherever there is lack, provide for that need. If it is wisdom we seek, make us wise. If it is brokenness and tears we shed, comfort us and make us whole. Lord, you know every detail about us, Lord, we give it all to you. Lord, have your way. Keep changing us. In Jesus name, amen!
