Take time to pray and ask God to speak to you through His Holy Spirit.
Read Matthew 7:24-27
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”
I really began this thinking about the words “in the Lord”. Our life should be rooted, reliant on, built in the Lord. From here the Lord guided me to this passage in Matthew. We often hear people speak of their loved ones saying, “he is my rock” or my “mom is my rock”. But here God tells us where our foundation should be… who we should trust to be our rock. Hear His words… do His words and you will establish a firm foundation.
- Using an online Bible tool such as Bible Gateway, look up the words “in the Lord”.
- Jot down some of the verses that come up that speak into your heart. (some of my favorites are: Philippians 4:4, Proverbs 3:5, Psalm 37:4, 1 Corinthians 1:31, Ephesians 6:10, 2 Chronicles 20:20)
- What does this reveal about our thoughts, attitudes and goals?
- Ask the Holy Spirit to come into your heart and mind and change the way you listen and do.
May you continue to build your life on the Rock that is Christ. May you seek Him, listen to Him and do as He has shown you. May your life be rooted in His love as you rejoice, trust, and delight in Him! Praying for you!
