He is our firm foundation

“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

“My life was built on a shifting ground. Just when I thought I had it all together, everything would change.”

That’s the start of a letter we recently received from Ruth, a 42-year-old woman in the Dominican Republic. Here’s more of her story:

On one of the saddest nights of my life, I turned on the radio and found your program. From that moment forward, I was transformed completely. I gave up worshipping trivial things (relationships, jobs, money, etc.) and I turned to God. I remembered you were studying the book of Revelation (it’s still my favorite book) and I decided to follow you every day.

“It was with you that I learned to study Scripture and ask God to open them up to me. Twenty-two years later, my life is built on the solid rock. I have a clear purpose. I know what I was born for and what my God created me for. Today I have identity in Christ. Today I am more than a conqueror thanks to Christ. Sure, I have my ups and downs; but I am still firmly waiting for His glorious coming. I know I am not perfect and that we are sinners. But every day I have an advocate who intercedes for me before the Father: Jesus Christ, the righteous. This would not have been possible if God had not led me to you. I pray many more will hear your teaching and build their lives on the truth as well.”

Praise God for His promise in Matthew 7. Let’s join together in prayer now:

Father as Your Word goes out in the Dominican Republic, we pray many will hear it, believe it, and obey it. Like Ruth, we pray their lives will be changed as they stand on the rock of Your Word. We’re grateful that we can be confident You are our firm foundation from this day forward. In the name of Jesus we pray, amen.

It’s time to put our fear aside and put our spiritual gifts to work. Find out more tomorrow as we pray our way through Guatemala.
