“ …a wise man who built his house on the rock.” – Matthew 7:24
IF YOU happen to be one of the lucky individuals who are currently studying A Level Economics, your subject leader would have no doubt told you that the theme for your exam next summer will based around the topic, “Risk and Uncertainty.”
That the exam board has chosen this topic will come as no surprise – especially if you live in Britain because of the never-ending uncertainty over “Brexit” – which perhaps might be over given last week’s General Election results where the Conservative Party won a thumping majority over its nearest rivals – the Labour Party. According to some, the victory now gives Boris Johnson – the Party’s leader a clear path to negotiate a deal for Britain to exit the European Union.
But for some businesses the risk still remains especially those that trade within the EU. Moreover, no one has foresight into what will happen in the months and years following a deal (assuming it actually happens). However, there is one person who knows the future and can take away all the uncertainties that we’ll ever have in our lives and that is the “everlasting rock” and the “ancient of days” – the Lord God.
Jesus says that we should be our house on the rock because when the storms come – whether its Brexit, a job loss, sickness, the loss of a loved one – nothing will be destroyed because it has been founded upon the rock that is Christ. (Matthew 7:24-27 ESV).
Therefore, as you begin a new week know that it is only God that can give you a peace that transcends all understanding in the midst of any uncertainty that you are facing (Philippians 4:6-7). Just trust in him and he’ll make your path straight (Proverbs 3:5 ESV).
