Day 5: You will survive the storm by standing on Jesus, the firm foundation.
Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25
On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand… The truth in that old hymn is profound. When the rain and flood waters of life surround us, it is imperative that we have a tried and true foundation. Jesus is the only surety in this life. He is the only guarantee that we will see the other side of the storm with any hope for survival. Putting our confidence in anything else is like building a house on a mound of sand. Build with confidence on Jesus, the Chief Cornerstone.
Prayer: Jesus, thank You for being a sure and solid foundation. I am thankful that I can trust You to be my confidence, and that when the storms around me are howling, I have safety in the shelter of You, the most High God. In Your name, amen.
