The Rock that Doesn't Roll - Saturday, November 19th 2016
Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold - the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.
We have seen and perhaps been a part of the 'political process' of listening to and or being persuaded by candidates. It's easy to get caught up in the rhetoric and dialogue and lose sight of who we should be looking to. That's Jesus. His kingdom will ultimately come and demolish the other kingdoms in due season. It's a stone that was cut out of the mountain 'without hands.' It's a work of God and not of a man. We see that the image in Daniel 2:31-33 is top heavy and unstable like all human governments. So why do we let what happens in these earthly kingdoms steal our joy and our peace? The Lord has given us a stone, the rock Jesus Christ that tells us we won't be shaken if we trust in Him.
Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
"Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem,
†† a firm and tested stone.
It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on.
†† Whoever believes need never be shaken."
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.
Life Lesson: We should build this city on a hill (His Kingdom) on the rock that doesn't roll.
Please forgive me when I get my eyes off of You and instead focus on the cares and concerns of this world and it's shaky kingdoms. Help me continue to build my life on Your promises and continue to look for Your return. I know when I trust in You, my life is solid because You won't allow me to be shaken. Thank you Jesus! In Your name I pray, Amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,
