A Short Devotion from Reasons for Hope*Jesus

Do you want your life to be characterized by strength, stability and balance? Do you want to be considered successful, not in material wealth but rich in character? Would you like people to respect your opinions and the way you conduct your life?

Storms of Life

Rocks are pretty solid and weighty. When we think of a rock, we think of strength. Sometimes it’s said, “he is a rock” or “she is my rock,” meaning the person is strong or solid. 

Whether we realize it or not, we each live by a set of guidelines. It’s our thinking and how we go about making choices in life. What are your guidelines? From where do they come?

In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus said, “whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house [his life] on the rock” — not on sand. When the storms of life come, the wise man will be found standing.

Delight in the LORD

What does it mean to delight in something? Isn’t it something/someone that brings much joy and wonder?  Isn’t it something/someone that gets you fired-up?  And, isn’t it someone/something you value deeply? 

Do you feel that way about God? Do you feel that enthusiastic and energized about His Word? We can spend our lifetime here on earth barely scratching the surface of understanding God and His amazing Word. We are not able to fully comprehend the depth of His goodness, wisdom and power. Our finite minds can’t even grasp the magnitude!

How can you find pure joy in God today? What practical ways can you show value to His Word? For starters, you can invest time in reading the Bible and applying it to your life. His Spirit is your guide; He will light your way!
