Strong foundations endure.

On vacation in Florida over Christmas, we witnessed the damage Hurricane Ian caused three months prior. Wooden stairs, the only thing remaining from a crosswalk, and empty lots where houses once stood. But one place stood alone, the entry stairs and deck gone, the firm foundation withstood the hurricane winds, the home still intact.

We will encounter hurricanes in life, storms that sweep us off our feet, causing us to fall to our knees and cry out to God. In our darkest moments, the Lord answers, our firm foundation in times of trouble.

“I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.” Psalm 121:1-3

When the storm hits, lift your eyes to the hills and receive strength from the Lord.  God never sleeps, always watching. The winds may blow, but with Christ, you can sustain them.

Lord, thank You for watching over us, never sleeping, constantly vigilant. Plant our feet firmly on the rock when the storm winds blow; hold us steady until they pass. IJNIP. Amen
