Proverbs 10:25 As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.
Have you ever gone to the carnival or town fair and found one ride that really tickles your fancy? I’m talking about the one that, if you could, you would build it in your back yard and ride it every day. You get on, get all situated, and then it begins. Nothing else seems to matter for those few minutes. All you can think about is how you feel on the ride at that moment. Then, right in the middle of all this fun, the ride begins to slow down, then stops, and you are ushered off to the side. It is all over.
Although they may not realize it, that is what life is like for lost people in this world. Satan has given them something that distracts them from the reality of life. All they have in mind is the fun for the moment. However, just as the ride at the fair has an end, so does every person’s life. Someday it will all stop, and they will be ushered off into eternity.
Just like a whirlwind which passes, and everyone is talking about it for a while, so is our life. Then, before we know it, it is over, and our life has gone the way of the passing whirlwind. For the lost without Christ, it will be an eternity in hell. However, for the Saved, those who are made righteous by the blood of Jesus Christ, it is an eternity in Heaven. Our Eternity has changed because of the “everlasting foundation” of our life, Jesus.
Do you know someone who is living on the roller coaster of life? The ride seems to have captivated all their attention. Pray today that you, or someone might get their attention and get them off the ride before it comes to its end. Help set their feet on the solid rock. This rock is Jesus.
