Positive Ground

Paths to Hope, #4#4_SolidGround_by David Mark from Pixabay

Life is ever-changing. Our place in time and space fluctuates with vacillating circumstances and relationships. Seismic shifts shake our well-ordered lives and we find ourselves on unfamiliar paths. If we want to walk strong and sure, it’s critical we find ground that is firm and true—no sink holes, shifting sand, or marshy muck—no reliance on wavering emotions or skewed perspectives.

The one foundation that offers consistently stable, rock-hard ground is the Bible. The path it offers is a groundwork of truth—all truth, only truth, nonfluctuating truth, solid truth. The Bible’s words and its Author never shift.

Jesus said that the wise dig down deep and lay a foundation on rock. When floods come (and they always come) the house will be hit, but not shaken. (Luke 6:48)

Unshaken. That’s how I want to walk out my moments, days, and years—not shifting and tripping, mired or entangled, fearful or uncertain.

Let’s pound the road before us on the positive, reliable truth of God’s Word—a rock sure foundation.

He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. (Ps 40:2b)
