Rock Foundation

It was a cold, rainy, overcast, and cloudy day up in Sequoia National Park. My wife and I climbed up Moro Rock not expecting to see much because of the clouds. On the way up we couldn’t see anything but white all around us and part of the path in front of us. Neither could we see our destination at the top of the mountain. But yet we continued to climb higher and higher together. And as soon as we got to the top of the rock, the clouds broke, the rain stopped, and everything was clear! We could see for miles! It was a spectacular sight to behold! Definitely in the top 10 most amazing views I’ve been privileged to see in my short 32 years. Life is a lot like this… In life, the rain of sorrow may fall upon us and clouds of confusion surround us so that we can’t see our way clearly. And yet God calls us to keep climbing higher. At first, we may not see clearly where He’s leading us. But as long as we stay upon the solid Rock foundation of His Word, and keep moving forward in the path of faith one step at a time, He will bring us to the top of the mountain of victory. It is there that we will be able to see clearly that which was at first cloudy. Are you surrounded by the clouds of worry and confusion and don’t know your way? Stand on the rock, stay on the path, keep climbing higher and claim this promise… "Worry is blind, and cannot discern the future; but Jesus sees the end from the beginning. In every difficulty He has His way prepared to bring relief. Our heavenly Father has a thousand ways to provide for us, of which we know nothing. Those who accept the one principle of making the service and honor of God supreme will find perplexities vanish, and a plain path before their feet.” - EG White
