Rooted on the rock

Six sea limpets sit on the rock, they are clamped on with medium pressure, but as soon as danger comes, perhaps a blast from some passing wave or incoming tide, then they cling onto this rock for their lives.

Love God. Are we rooted in Christ? Do we keep our daily prayers up, after all that is the powerhouse of our faith. I have found that when times of turmoil or testing comes, my prayers leap into action, or I cling to Christ with all my might and soon the danger has gone and I can go back to my routine of prayer and reflection on God.

The limpets have been on this rock for many a year. When the tide rises high and covers the rock, then they move around and perform their duty, their job without question. They move around their home eating algae, and any plant that tries to settle on their rock. They also eat young barnacles.

Walk in His ways. We have been commanded to go forth and proclaim the gospel. The good news that Christ has atoned for all our sins and we are know free if we turn from this sin, give it to Christ and accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour.

In order to survive the low tide the limpets keep a small bubble of sea water with them. They cherish this because it keeps them alive and sustains them.

Keep His Word. We have the Word in many forms today which we can read and meditate on. We must cherish, and keep this close to our hearts as it gives us the very life to get through those low tides.

See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes and His judgements, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess.

Deuteronomy 30:15-16
Dear Lord, help us to always love you, guide our feet to always walk in your way and give us the strength to keep your Word in our hearts always. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
