“On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand
All Other Ground Is Sinking Sand…”
The words to this old hymn written by Edward Mote and music by William Batchelder Bradbury, bring such a place of hope and faith expressed. The firm declaration of personal trust in the foundation found in believing in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is such a testimony of faith.
Would that we all had reached this place in Him. Are we able to stand and declare such a firm belief in His care for us? Some of us can say, “Yes! I believe and have seen His tender care and mercies given to me many times over.” It is interesting to note personally, there are so many areas where I have known faith’s rewards through God’s provision. And others where my faith faltered and missed the mark. Yet, I will not quit going back to the Bible to find more and more of His ways, deeds and love made available to me by the finished work of the Cross of Christ.
Our “standing on the Rock” is our faith extended as far as we can send it…the rest is up to God to fulfill. Without Him, we can do nothing. Our very breath is supplied by Him. What a reassurance to realize He daily supplies to us all the necessities of life without prejudice. We all have an atmosphere to breathe, rain in season, harvests of food and so many other things we take for granted. Perhaps our declarations at this time should be ones of praise and thanksgiving as well as expectations for future provision.
God is so good to us. His ear is open to our cry and his love is extended to all mankind, even those who hate and reject Him. Let us lift up some Hallelujahs today!.
Psalm 68:4 The Passion Translation
” Let them sing their celebration-songs
for the coming of the cloud rider whose name is Yah!”
Psalm 18:31 The Passion Translation
” Could there be any other god like you?
You are the only God to be worshiped,
for there is not a more secure foundation
to build my life upon than you.”
