Thursday of the First Week of Advent
The Lord is the only solid rock we can build our lives on. He is our fortress, he is our shield, and our companion through every situation of life. When we trust the Lord, he moves in power in our lives. He mends what is broken, he heals our heart, and transforms our mess into messages. Building your house on a solid rock is not just saying it, writing it, or thinking about it; it is surrendering your all to God, and making him the Lord of your life. It is all about letting go of yourself and your rights to control your life and giving God the permission to take full authority of your life. It is about saying no to the desires of your flesh and saying yes to the will of God. It is about dying to self for Christ to give you a new life.
Building a house on a solid rock can be compared to a ship being secured on an anchor. Winds will blow, waves will hit you, but if you are anchored on the maker and giver of life you will never drift. If God is your anchor, nothing can move you. Just let him take over, let his love overflow in your life. Walk with him, talk to him, trust him, and let him act. Our God is a provider, make him your anchor, make him your solid rock, and you will never lack.
