Christ Is Our Foundation When The Storms Of Life Come

Life is filled with ups and downs, trials and adversity. Someone has said that it’s not a matter of IF you will go through tough times but WHEN. Adversity happens. But how do we handle it?
Proverbs 11:25 says, “When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away,
but the godly have a lasting foundation.” Notice the text reads “When the storms of life come.” The writer doesn’t say “If” the storms of life come but instead “when.” So, we can count on facing adversity.
How do we respond to it? How do we handle it?
The text says “the wicked are whirled away but the godly have a lasting foundation.” So, what is our foundation? It’s the Lord. The Lord gives us strength and during adversity.
How do we get this strength? We get it from our faith… we get it from God’s word… I am not suggesting that it is easy because it’s not. But we have a foundation to stand on.
There is an old hymn that goes;
“On Christ the solid rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
All other ground is sinking sand.”
