What am I standing on?

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

As I was meditating on Jesus recently I became aware of just how seemingly unattached and yet completely grounded we are when we live by faith.

Everything apart from faith is sin.

I used to picture myself walking through this world while God was holding a flashlight on the ground ahead of me.  I think I’ve been wrong!  If my feet are attached to this world in any way then I am not living by faith.  Rather, living by faith is more like walking on Light, trusting God’s word alone.

Living by faith is more like free-floating and yet at the same time standing on the most solid and sure Rock and Foundation, Jesus Christ.  There seems to be a contradiction when living by faith that seems unresolvable.  And it is if one leans on their own reason and logic or their own faith for that matter.

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God–Ephesians 2:8

Thank God for faith!

Faith assures us of things we expect and convinces us of the existence of things we cannot see.  God accepted our ancestors because of their faith.  Faith convinces us that God created the world through his word. This means what can be seen was made by something that could not be seen.  Hebrews 11:1-3

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.

    Hi,
    Where did you get that image of the Cross with “The Solid Rock” printed on it? I’d like to have a poster of that.
