When I heard the prompt, “support” my mind went in many directions. So many ideas came to mind.
- Support the hurricane victims
- Support your ball team
- Support your local church
- Support Your Local Sheriff (a Western Comedy)
Support me in the whelming flood
But my mind kept going to a phrase from a favorite hymn, “..support me in the whelming flood”. It stayed with me all day so I knew this was where I should go.
The ‘whelming flood .. so many throughout the world are in the midst of literal flooding. Possibly, you have spent much time these past few weeks trying to clean up the muck from a flooded home. But then again, you may have floods of other types
- Your mind may be flooded with thoughts of worry and anxiety,
- You could be drowning in great debt and financial problems,
- Possibly, you are overwhelmed with wave after wave of illnesses.
- Are you sinking in a sea of troubles?
I’m here to say that it doesn’t really matter what floods are coming your way. Jesus Christ is the Solid Rock on which you can stand and be surefooted when all around you gives way. Just reach out and call out to Him. He will reach back and pull you to safety. Lean on Him and let him support you.
We all have times when the darkness seems to hide His face. It feels as though God is nowhere to be found. But we can rest secure in His Grace even though the storm clouds gather. Jesus, the solid Rock will be our anchor.
His promises are true.
He made a covenant to save you when He went to the cross. His oath is sure. God can be trusted. He is our rock in the whelming flood. When it seems the waves have overwhelmed us and we are going down for the last time. He will support us and bring us through.
All we need to do is ask. Give our lives into His control. If you haven’t done this. I pray that you will. It’s very easy to do… Easy as A,B,C
A – Accept that you are a sinner.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
There is no one righteous, no not one. Our deeds are as filthy rags compared to His holiness. Romans 3:10; Isaiah 64:6
B – Believe in Jesus Christ as Savior
God so loved the World that he gave his one and only son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
C – Confess your sins and turn from wrong.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
It’s that simple.
If you have done this today, praise the Lord for what He has done. Get support and instruction from a pastor or Christian in your town. Write me a note. I would love to hear from you and support you online.
The afore written words were inspired by a favorite old hymn, The Solid Rock
