Finding The Solid - The Rock


"Jesus is the rock of my salvation, His banner over me is love.
Jesus is the rock of my salvation, His banner over me is love.
Jesus is the rock of my salvation, His banner over me is love.
His banner....over me....is love"


A Children's Song

There are a set of motions that go along with that song. I'll send them and the rest of the words if you would like...We also sing the song about the wise man building his house upon the rock with the children. It comes from Matt.7:24-27. This passage of scripture includes: a house, rain, wind, streams, sand and rock. It would be good for us to read it and meditate upon it today. The house being built is our lives. The the rain, wind and streams are the problems that we encounter in our lives. The sand is what we pin false hopes upon that we think might see us through. The rains, streams and wind are liquids and gases....Almost every year here in NJ, the sand on our beaches needs to be replenished because it is carried away by the tides. Ahhhhh...But there is something in this passage that can be counted on not to move or be affected by the wind, streams, rain or even the tides. JESUS IS THE ROCK OF OUR SALVATION! Everyone will have problems in their lives. It will always rain and blow and we can't rely on the shifting sands for stability. How one reacts and builds will make all the difference. The only way is to seek the solid! Jesus is our security. He is our only hope for weathering life's storms..."Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who builds his house on the ROCK. The rains came down, and the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had it's foundation ON THE ROCK!" (Matt.7:24-25)..."When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching" (V.28). I am amazed every time I read them....Are you?

Have a wonderful day...With Him, we can all make a difference.... Love mark Phil.4:11
