Build Your Life Upon the Rock

By Andrea Merrell

For who is God except the Lord?

    Who but our God is a solid rock?

Psalm 18:31 NLT


From jackets and snow boots to tee-shirts and flip flops … all in a matter of hours.

It’s amazing how quickly things change. In fact, I’ve heard it said that the only constant we have in this life is change.

I drive down the street looking for my childhood home—the place where so many memories were born—and it’s no longer there. Leveled to the ground. The old “swimming hole,” as we used to refer to it, now filled in and replaced by a fancy subdivision. Friends and family who have passed through my life … now gone.

Even though in this world nothing remains the same, there is a constant that—or rather who—keeps us safe, secure, and filled with hope. The same yesterday, today, and forever, God’s love never fails. He never gives up on us or leaves us. His promises are yes and amen, because His Word never returns void. And His plans and purpose can never be dismissed or derailed. If He said it, we can count on it. When we belong to Him, He even engraves our name in the palm of His hand.

We all experience different seasons. Friends and family may come and go. Situations and circumstances can change as quickly as the weather. But God never changes. He is the Rock upon which we build our lives.

Have you built your life upon the Rock?
