Towering dunes along the north shore of Silver Lake put nearby homes at risk of sinking into shifting sands. Though residents have tried moving mounds of sand in efforts to protect their homes, they have watched helplessly as well-built houses were buried right before their eyes. As a local sheriff oversaw the cleanup of a recently destroyed cottage, he affirmed the process couldn’t be opposed or prevented. No matter how hard homeowners try to avoid the dangers of these unsteady embankments, the dunes simply cannot provide a strong foundational support.

Jesus knew the futility of building a house on sand. After warning the disciples to be wary of false prophets, the Lord assured them that loving obedience demonstrates wisdom (Matthew 7:15-23). He said that everyone who hears His words and “puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24). The one who hears God’s words and chooses not to put them into practice, however, is “like a foolish man who built his house on sand” (v. 26).

When circumstances feel like shifting sands burying us under the weight of affliction or worries, we can place our hope in Christ‒our Rock. He will help us develop resilient faith built on the unshakeable foundation of His unchanging character.

He said that everyone who hears his words and put them in the practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The one who hears God's words and chooses not to put them into practice. However, like a foolish man who built his house on sand. When circumstances feel like shifting sands bearing is under the weight of affliction or worries, we can place our hope in Christ rock.

He will help us develop resilient faith built on the unshakable foundation of his unchanging character. Today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Matthew chapter 7 verses 24 to 27 therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock, but everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash. Let's pray. Jesus, thanks for remaining the same, unchanging and faithful and true to your word yesterday today and forever.

Please help us develop resilient faith and power us to demonstrate our trust through loving obedience to you in Jesus name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
