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: Standing in the ocean, your feet will either move or remain depending on what you’re standing on. If it’s sand…that changes and disappears as each wave hits. Standing on a rock, your feet remain steady no matter how many waves hit it. In life, God is that Rock who brings stability and strength in the midst of life’s storms. Life changes every single day. But God is not like the things of this world. Because He never changes and His word is always true, 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: Along the shores of a rocky ocean, you will find caves cut into the rock offering safety and relief from the waves and storm. In this stressful uncertain world, God is a refuge where we can hide. He never fails and never grows tired. As you face the struggles of life now and in the future, we can cling to God for security because He is trustworthy. Psalm 91:1-2 says, “Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”

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