Solid Rock

The Solid Rock, Christ Jesus

This is an excerpt from a recent YouTube video from Jane Hansen Hoyt. View the complete video message.

I’m going to reference an old hymn. “My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness.” Listen to this verse.

“His oath, His covenant, His blood supports me in the ‘whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay.”

You look at the turmoil or things in your own life, but God looks at the Christ within you. And He is pleased. He is the One we stand upon in difficult times, in changing times. Our feet are planted on solid ground, on the solid Rock that is Christ Jesus. It’s amazing! It’s wonderful! It’s the way that He has provided for us to walk here in the earth through difficult things. God bless you. It’s going to be ok!

Know Him

Draw Us Close to You, Lord

A common desire for just about everyone is to live a predictable, safe lifestyle. The unknown can sound exciting until is actually begins to take place in the things around us. It’s at that point that our human nature kicks in and desperately looks for the known and predictable.

Yet, God’s desire is for us to know Him in greater depth and breadth. For that reason, He will sometimes allow those unknown things to come into our lives to draw us towards Himself. He wants us to cling to the peace, the calm and the safety of His Presence in our lives, even in the midst of chaos. 

This is a great time to focus, to step aside from the rush of news, from the sound of chaos, and from the things that tend to disturb our peace and let it all move us into a place of greater depth and breadth with the One who holds it all in the center of His will.
