Is God Your Rock?
“No one is holy like the Lord, for there is none besides You, nor is there any rock like our God.”
1 Samuel 2:2
Notice in Hannah’s song of praise the holiness of God is declared. She also professed God to be her Rock. Who is the Rock? Jesus Christ. It is important to build the foundation of your life on the Rock and not on the sand. In Jesus’ earthly ministry, He taught the people an important parable; those who heard His words and put them into practice were likened to a wise man who built his house on a rock:
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them,
I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock” (Matthew 7:24-25).
Notice, when the floods came and the waters beat on the house,
it did not fall because it was built on the rock. Jesus continued the parable with a warning:
“But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.” (Matthew 7:26-27)
Notice, the house that fell had no solid foundation. In this world we will have many trials, so Jesus needs to be our Rock. This is very important in your Christian life. Think about what Jesus taught. Who are you most likened too, the wise man or the foolish man? Is Jesus your Rock?
The Lord is my Rock and my Fortress and my Deliverer; my God, my Strength, in whom I will trust; my Shield and the
Horn of my Salvation, my Stronghold.
