FOUNDED ON THE ROCK The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in
whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold (Psalm 18:2 NIV).
The Bible tells us about the spiritual rock that accompanied the children of Israel on their journey through the wilderness; that rock was Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4). He is the rock of our salvation. Anything that’s
founded on Him is eternally fortified and unshakable. It brings to mind the words of Jesus in Matthew 7:24-He said, “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine and doeth them, I will liken him unto a
wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be
likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house, and it fell: and great was the fall of it.”
Notice the Lord didn’t say if you built your house on the rock, the winds would come and turn away, or that the floods would come and flow away. No! He said they’d beat upon the house. But because it’s on the rock, it’ll remain standing. That’s how your life is when you live in the Word of God. It doesn’t matter the fiery darts and tempest from Satan; you’re unflustered and unscathed.
Build your ministry on the Word. Build your life, your finances, your business, your relationships—all your endeavours—on the Word, and they’ll never crumble. Recall what the Bible says through the Prophet Isaiah, which parallels what we read from the Master in Matthew 7:24-27. He said, “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee” (Isaiah 43:2).
This is your heritage as one in Christ. You’re unconquerable. All things work together to produce blessings for you! You’re divinely protected because Christ is your rock and your fortress. Hallelujah!
Dear Father, thank you for your Word, which is my sure and firm foundation. My life is built on Christ, the Rock on which I stand secured, strengthened, rooted, and grounded, set for an upward course—the transcendent, victorious and prosperous life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
