Lean on the Rock

When you become a Christian, it doesn’t mean that you will live on a perpetual “high.” The Psalmist David went down to the very depths, and so did the Apostle Paul. But in the midst of all circumstances God’s grace, peace, and joy are there. The tears will still come, the pressures will be felt, and so will the temptations. But there is a new dimension, a new direction, and a new power in life to face the circumstances in which you live.

Listen to a 1-minute message on hope in the midst of suffering.

Prayer for the day

David and Paul have given me the example of trusting You, Lord, even in the excruciating valleys of life. Like them, I praise You.

    Our journey here is always shaking, trembling, unstable. Satan never stops working to make us fall off the Rock of Ages. Though his storms rage, so we cling to the one stable, strong, sustaining ONE, The Lord of Heaven’s armies. Praise God that he never leaves us, always hears us, has mercy on us, and bestows His grace as we bow down and hold tightly to the Rock of Ages. Praise God in all things, for He is with us.
