There is a favourite song that is sang by most of us, which says "On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand"... But in sincerity their stand have shifted and now sinking with with the sand because anything outside Christ and doesn't have Christ as the focus is the sinking sand.
When you declare Christ as your stand, it means you believe in Him, you stay focused on him and you are confident in His power that is able to save you through every phase. The moment you begin to think that your money, influence, fame can get you through without God in it, it is am evidence that your believe has shifted, your focus changed and your stand on a sandy ground. This sandy ground has brought such people into confusion, uncertainty and for some reason no matter what they have they deem unsatisfied. The question here is, is Christ still your rock? Do you still diligently seek Him? Is he still your first love or have gotten so familiar with him that you feel you can do anything at your will. Ate you still burning for him. You know those things you have and see as your god/stand can rock you on for a while but know this they will not keep you standing eternally. Christ is the only solid rock, when other ground sinks he keeps you standing.
There may be bumps along the way, it may get narrow as you go in the way of Christ, friends may even leave you but so far Christ is your rock, you're not alone. Be sure to get through victoriously. Won't you rather take your stand in the rock that is eternal, secure and sure than the things that are temporary and sinking. Check your stand today is it on Christ the solid rock or the rock of the sandy world. It is a costly risk to think that you can substitute the resource for the source. If you are not stand on solid rock (Christ) you are not standing at all. It's time to take a stand!
