1. There is unassailable safety by /in/with/on the Rock. This is different from just comfort or stability but things can go really bad and degenerate so much that faith is overwhelmed and you are close to give up. Our text is from Psalm 61 – David knew this kind of overwhelming trouble...

    Psalm 61[1] Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. [2] From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. [3] For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. [4] I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings.

    David cried to God even from the ends of the earth...David is said to have written this Psalm from exile-perhaps after the Absalom rebellion. The tabernacle was God’s visible abode and David missed God...more than He missed the throne, his people, his luxurious palace...what will you miss if you feel separated from God through sin...and have run into trouble...and have lost assets, position. Most will miss their position and reputation ...David missed the tabernacle...even as he cried to God for help.

  2. What are the benefits of the foundation laid on Rock...There are at least three. 1. Stability in the wicked waves of storms and shakings 2. Endurance to bear the normal weights of life and 3. Protection and insulation from the hostile underground environment...

    I want to of focus first on the third...though we cannot overemphasise that shakings prove the verity of the foundation that we have...and it is also equally important to note that there are things ( weights) of living that must be endured...even as we are helped by the foundation to carry the weight...thus making His “burden” light. But perhaps most important is the unseen wicked underground - a very hostile environment that without the foundation will slowly devour the base of the building causing it to crumble or be home to vermin, rodents and foulness.

    The foundation supervises our growth making us like Christ...the foundation in Christ ensures we have a strong spiritual desire and a yearning for perfection...though imperfect. Today being Christ-like is called fanaticism...but it is our potency that makes us the salt and light...not our dilutions of truth or lukewarmness.
