Solid Rock of Truth

The Two Foundations

Matthew 7:24-27 NLT … “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. 26 But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. 27 When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

From Our Daily Bread Build a House, Lessons, Right Foundation:

The wise man builds his house on rock
Instead of sinking sand
By doing what the Builder says
And following His plan
For when the storms of life descend
That house will surely stand.

INSIGHT:
Jesus had just finished giving His “Sermon on the Mount” when He used the analogy found in today’s passage. His teachings provide a stable foundation that will weather any storm. The wind, the rain, and the house are not the problem. The house built on the sand fell down because the sand provided no support in the wind and rain. The wind and rain washed and blew away the foundation so that there was nothing to support the house. Even the best house will crumble with no foundation.

The wise man builds his house upon the Rock.

Lord, help me stand firm upon Your rock of  Truth and never trust myself to sinking sand.

    Two Foundations
    The Rock and the sand
    But only Christ the solid rock
    The firm foundation forever stands!

    1Cor 3:11 NLT … For no one can lay any other foundation than the one we already have––Jesus Christ.

    1Pe 1:25… the word of the LORD endures forever.”

    Is 26:4Trust in the LORD forever, for in YAH, the LORD, is the Rock Eternal!

    Lyrics:
    Letting go of every single dream
    I lay each one down at Your feet
    Every moment of my wondering
    Never changes what You see

    I’ve tried to win this war I confess
    My hands are weary I need Your rest
    Mighty Warrior King of the fight
    No matter what I face You’re by my side

    (chorus)
    When You don’t move the mountains
    I’m needing You to move
    When You don’t part the waters
    I wish I could walk through
    When You don’t give the answers
    As I cry out to You
    I will trust, I will trust
    I will trust in You

    Truth is You know what tomorrow brings
    There’s not a day ahead You have not seen
    So in all things be my life and breath
    I want what You want Lord and nothing less

    (chorus)
    When You don’t move the mountains
    I’m needing You to move
    When You don’t part the waters
    I wish I could walk through
    When You don’t give the answers
    As I cry out to You
    I will trust, I will trust
    I will trust in You
    I will trust in You

    (bridge)
    You are my strength and comfort
    You are my steady hand
    You are my firm foundation
    The Rock on which I stand
    Your ways are always higher
    Your plans are always good
    There’s not a place where I’ll go
    You’ve not already stood

    (chorus)
    When You don’t move the mountains
    I’m needing You to move
    When You don’t part the waters
    I wish I could walk through
    When You don’t give the answers
    As I cry out to You
    I will trust, I will trust
    I will trust in You
    I will trust in You
    I will trust in You
    I will trust in You
