Upon A Rock
Life can become like sinking sand. It may seem like we may be stuck in a rut, spinning our wheels, and exerting all our energy, and yet we just aren't going anywhere. Sometimes we may feel like there is a wall all around us, like a horrible pit that we cannot get out of. However, during those times in our lives, God is there, reaching His hand out to us to lift us up and to place us on the Solid Rock. He wants to be our stability and strength, and He also wants to guide and direct our life, but we must have faith and trust in Him. We have to acknowledge that we can't do it in our strength and that we need God's strength. He will give us victory and help us move forward when our focus is on Him trusting in Him. The key is to wait patiently on the Lord. God doesn't work in our timetable, and sometimes we are placed in those pits to have our faith stretched. God wants us to trust Him and to rely on Him throughout our life.
I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
Psalm 40:1-2 (KJV)
