“Be to me a rock of habitation to which I may continually come; You have given commandment to save me, For You are my rock and my fortress.” (Psalm 71:3). Many passages in the Bible describe the Lord as our rock and our fortress. Have you ever tried to break a rock? Have you ever tried to drill a hole in it? A rock is solid and strong. Our Lord is solid and mighty strong. It’s good to focus on His indestructible characteristics. It helps our faith and it brings a lot of comfort. My encouragement to you today is to turn to God and ask Him, the Rock, to make your life solid and strong. He knows exactly what being solid takes and He can solidify the areas of your life that need to be strengthened.
We all have parts in our life that could be better and stronger. We all deal with weak areas that need improvement. It could be our finances, our family relationships, our job, our health, our spiritual life. However, we are not always aware that they can change and that they can be better. God cares about every single part of our life. He doesn’t just look at our spiritual life. He is a God of abundance and that’s what He wants us to receive from Him. He doesn’t want us to lack in anything. This is important to remember; God doesn’t want us to lack in anything!
This week, make an inventory of the areas in your life that are not strong. Ask the Holy Spirit for direction so you can get a clear image of what’s going on in your life. The Holy Spirit will help you be objective and He will give you the discernment you need. Once you have a good idea of what needs solidification, turn it all over to the Lord. Call everything by name. Be specific. For instance you can say “Lord, my finances are not in a good condition. They have too many cracks and they crumble all the time. I am asking You my Rock, to make my finances stronger. I need you to strengthen them so that nothing can break them and nothing negative can enter them. I turn them over to You and I am asking You to give me the wisdom I need to see an improvement and I believe You are working on this now in Jesus’ name.”
Whatever prayer works best for you is the one you should use to turn things over to your Rock. Praying over those weak areas will seal them with the blood of the Lamb and the Holy Spirit will assist you. Keep doing it. Don’t give up on it. God’s timing is perfect and just because your situation is not solid yet doesn’t mean that the Lord isn’t working on it. The Lord will turn your pile of dust into a solid rock that can’tI be destroyed. Turn to Him and He will also make your blessings solid. Your blessings will be continuous and uninterrupted. God will give you a solid portion of nonstop blessings. Trust in Him. God is going to to turn your life into a rock. Just wait and see!
