In areas where earthquakes are prevalent, many cities require large buildings to install a form of shock absorbers in their foundations to help provide additional stability. Right now, our world is shaking with Covid, riots, anger, political unrest, and a myriad of problems, and life is hard for so many people. Yet there is a place, a person, where we have eternal, unmoving stability. Jesus Christ is the solid rock, our firm foundation. God is the eternal Father, unfailing, immovable, unchangeable, and forever love.
Jesus Christ came from love out of love. Christ is the way, the truth, the life, He is the way of love from our loving heavenly Father to our loving heavenly Father. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” ~ John 3:16-17 (NASB)
His hold on you, on your precious soul, is always firm and always loving. Jesus promised, “I give to them the gift of eternal life and they will never be lost and no one has the power to snatch them out of my hands. My Father, who has given them to me as his gift, is the mightiest of all, and no one has the power to snatch them from my Father’s care.” ~ John 10:28-29 (TPT)
The world shakes, but Jesus says “Come to Me and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). The storms rage and the wind blows, but Jesus says, “Peace, be still” (Mark 4:39). Read the Bible, God’s word, stay in the word, stay with the Word, and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).
Christ is our peace in every difficulty we may face. “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful. . . . in Me you may have [perfect] peace and confidence. In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]” ~ John 14:27 (NASB), John 16:33 (AMPC)
“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with My righteous right hand. For I, Yahweh your God, hold your right hand and say to you: Do not fear, I will help you. Therefore, we will not be afraid, though the earth trembles and the mountains topple into the depths of the seas, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with its turmoil.” ~ Isaiah 41:10, 13 (HCSB), Psalm 46:2-3 (HCSB)
Remember Whose you are, and stand firm in the eternal love of Christ. “Surely the Lord’s power is enough to save you. He can hear you when you ask him for help.” ~ Isaiah 59:1 (NCV)
The unstable world needs to know the grace, forgiveness, and mercy of Jesus Christ, please share the good news of His tender, eternally stable love.
“I love you, Lord. You are my strength. The Lord is my rock, my protection, my Savior. My God is my rock. I can run to him for safety. He is my shield and my saving strength, my defender. I will call to the Lord, who is worthy of praise, and I will be saved from my enemies. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be shaken.” ~ Psalm 18:1-3 (NCV), Psalm 62:6 (HCSB)
