Étape 14 Limoux > Foix
They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.
Today we ride from Limoux in the region of Languedoc-Rousillon to Foix in the Midi-Pyrénées region. Today, the mountain rises before them as they head west into the Pyrénées. When we arrive in Foix there will be a castle built on a rock high above the city. It brought to mind this verse in Luke. This verse and those around it tells us that the people who listen and obey God's Word are like wise men who build their house on the rock.
Lord, we pray that we will be people who listen to your word and obey, so that we can be like a man building a house on a rock. When life's storms come, if our lives are firmly built on the foundation of Your word they will not be shaken. Lord, we pray that people of France will see that your word is the solid rock they need for their lives. We pray that someone today will open your Word and read and as they obey their lives will be built on your Word. Thank you for the foundation you provide. We pray all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen
