I am thankful for the hope and assurance I have in Jesus through His Word. Matthew tells us that while life can have its harder and trying times, we can have peace and stability if we know and are obedient to God’s Word. I think of the song “Firm Foundation” that we sing that communicates the message of these verses well:
Christ is my firm foundation
The rock on which I stand
When everything around me is shaken
I’ve never been more glad
That I put my faith in Jesus
He’s never let me down
He’s faithful through generations
So why would he fail now?
God, Your word is our foundation and anchor in all seasons. Help us to be diligent in seeking You through scripture in our daily lives and to implement what you are teaching us. Thank you for the hope and peace you give.
