Lent Day 12: The Stone

Jul 21, 2023


Welcome to It Is Well Living Church's Lent Day 12! In today's devotional, we delve into the symbolism and significance of the stone. Join us on this spiritual journey as we explore the power of faith and beliefs.

The Stone as a Symbol of Foundation

Throughout history, stones have been regarded as strong and durable foundations. Just like a building relies on a solid stone foundation, our faith in God serves as the bedrock upon which we build our lives. As we reflect on Lent Day 12, let us ponder the steadfastness and unyielding nature of the stone.

The Stone in Religious Texts

In religious texts from various faith traditions, the stone holds deep symbolism. In the Bible, for instance, we encounter stories where stones play prominent roles. David, before he became King, defeated the giant Goliath with a single stone. Jesus, after his resurrection, had the stone rolled away from his tomb.

These stories highlight the power and transformative nature of the stone. They remind us that no obstacle is insurmountable and that faith in God can move mountains. Lent Day 12 encourages us to draw strength from these narratives, recognizing the stones in our lives that need to be moved and conquered through faith.

The Stone as a Metaphor for Faith

Beyond its physical attributes, the stone serves as a metaphor for faith. Just as a stone is unchanging and steadfast, our faith should remain unwavering even in the face of adversity. The Lenten season is a time for self-reflection, repentance, and strengthening our relationship with God. It is a time to meditate on the power that lies within us, just like the potential energy held within a stone.

Building Strong Foundations

In our pursuit of spiritual growth, we must strive to build strong foundations. The stone reminds us of the importance of a solid grounding. Cultivating a robust spiritual life requires consistent care and nurture. By engaging in prayer, meditation, scripture study, and acts of service, we lay down a solid foundation for our faith to flourish.

Let the stone be a constant reminder to embrace steadfastness in our beliefs and practices. Like a well-constructed stone pathway, our spiritual journey becomes smoother and more purposeful.


As we come to the end of Lent Day 12, let us reflect on the lessons learned from the stone. May it symbolize our unwavering faith, our commitment to building strong spiritual foundations, and our ability to overcome obstacles with God's guidance.
