AWESOME DEVOTIONS: SOLID ROCK OR SINKING SAND?

SOLID ROCK OR SINKING SAND?

There was a picture in the paper today of a home whose foundation was sliding down a hill. The owners were about to lose their home because of the foundation they had built on was sinking! Coincidentally (although I doubt seriously if it was truly a coincidence!) when I was reading my Bible today I was reading in Matthew where Jesus talks about the wise and foolish builders.

In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus says "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who build his house on the sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."

Is your house built on a firm foundation or is it on sinking sand? Are you a wise or foolish builder? Can you withstand any storm that life brings your way? Build your house on a firm foundation with God!

One of the best old time hymns is Solid Rock which was written in 1832 by Edward Mote. These lyrics are perfect for this devotional!

SOLID ROCK

On Christ the Solid Rock
(Edward Mote, William Bradbury)

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

When darkness veils his lovely face
I rest on his unchanging grace
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
All other ground is sinking sand

His oath, his covenant, his blood
Supports me in the whelming flood
When all around my soul gives way
He then is all my hope and stay

When he shall come with trumpet sound
Oh may I then in him be found
Dressed in his righteousness alone
Faultless to stand before the throne

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
