Rock Solid

Rock Solid

By: Susan Deborah Schiller

There's a plan, a provision for every contingency, and a purpose for all the pain. God is making something beautiful out of your ashes. He's making you rock solid.

This is a promise – a truth – I have been standing on for over two decades, and even today as I enter the battlefield to fight for other women and children, this is the basis of my faith. It's the Rock of my life – these mountains of truth that I've dug hard to build my life upon.

You see, I asked God to give me His hardest tests. Naive, I was – not brave. I sensed His voice reply to me,

Dear Little One,

I have shaken what could be shaken, because I am giving something that cannot be shaken. I will not allow your life to be one of instability, so I am making you rock solid. You shall bring stability to the heart and minds of others, for as you have been tested, so you have been strengthened.

In this shaking I have removed and strengthened things in your life. I am giving you something unshakeable – an unshakeable faith, an unwavering will, an enduring hope, and an everlasting covenant with me.

This covenant extends to your family as well. Though they have been shaken, stability will come and the enemy will no longer be able to have his way with you, but I will have MY way with him!

You are a rock, one who cannot be moved. You are one will STAND regardless of the nonsense swirling around you. That is why the battle has been so severe, so fierce. The devil has fought hard to abort you, yet God himself has stood for you.

If you've ever wondered why the battle has been so fierce in your life… why you have to endure so many different trials… it may be that you once gave Him your whole life, your very being. He's forming you into something rock solid and as beautiful as a diamond.

These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold–though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world. ~ 1 Peter 1:7

He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. ~ 2 Corinthians 1:4
