Day 198 –
Make sure your feet are on solid ground.
Isaiah 28:16 “So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic.”
This evening had turned out to be a wonderful ending to a wonderful day. We walked to the nearest ice-cream shop. We each had a double scoop of our favorite flavors. Went across the street and had a playful stroll on the sandy beach, and took picture upon picture with the painted sky, magnifying God’s glory.
Then my oldest child begged me to climb the rocks with him. They moved just a tad when jumping and stepping from rock to rock, but I carefully climbed across them.
These definitely weren’t the unmovable rocks. So, thinking of safety, my friend who was with us on vacation, told her kids not to climb on them and in sync I agreed for my twins. However, my husband, who likes to push the against the rules sometimes, decided to join my son and I on our adventure.
He, on purpose, kept rocking the larger rocks, and as if we were in slow motion, he lost his balance, grabbed ahold of me, and 1, 2, 3….I was down on the rocks with a bloody backside.
I’m a tough girl, raised on a farm, climbing trees, eating mud pies, but this definitely hurt and left me with a nice bruise and gash as a remembrance of my decision.
Those rocks weren’t steady, in fact, anyone who wanted to climb them needed to have a lot of balance and be prepared to suffer the consequences of a lack thereof. But there is another rock, the Lord’s Cornerstone, that is solid, unmovable and will never allow you to fall.
When you stand upon his stone, you will never lose your footing, you will stand firm in your beliefs, and keep to His ways.
Jesus Christ is this precious cornerstone.
When we put all of our faith in Him, we will never waver and we will never fall.
So what type of ground are you standing on right now? Is your path rocky? Have you fallen and been hurt? Why not set your feet on the cornerstone given to you straight from God.
