My Rock

Background Story: Jesus often taught the crowd important life principles using parables and images.

Read Matthew 7:24-27

24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 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.

26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

Big Idea: Security in life is found on the Rock.

Throughout the Bible, God is described as a rock. What does that mean?

He’s A Rock To Stand On: If you put your feet in the ocean waves, your feet will either move or remain depending on what you’re standing on. If you’re standing on sand, every wave will make your footing less secure. If your standing in the waves on a rock, your feet remain steady no matter how many waves hit it. God is that Rock who brings stability and strength in the waves of life. Life changes every single day, but God does not. He never changes and His word is always true. Because of this, we can trust and rely on the One who is, “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8).

He’s A Rock To Hide In: If you walk along the shores of a rocky ocean, you will see places in the rock wall where birds, animals, and sometimes people take shelter during storms. Those places provide safety, a refuge, and a hiding place from the wind and waves outside. This is God. He is a refuge, a place of safety, and a hiding place where we can rest and have peace no matter what circumstance or storm rages around us. He is the constant that never moves, never changes, and never grows tired.

So take a glance at your feet… what are you standing and relying on? God is here…present, capable, and strong enough to sustain you and be your place of safety through any storm. Look to Him today.
