“And the rains fell, the floods came, the winds blew, and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.” Matthew 7:25 Amplified
In reviewing our verse for today it seemed appropriate that just a few days ago we remembered Hurricane Katrina and the devastation it wreaked on my home town of New Orleans ten years ago. For those who went through that it may have been tough to relive all of that destruction again, most have tried to put it behind them. Many people were forced to leave that area and after resettling elsewhere never returned.
Storms of all kinds come into our life and how well we weather them is based on our foundation. In our verse today Jesus is telling us, “everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts upon them, obeying them, will be like a sensible, prudent, practical, wise person who built his house upon the rock.” Conversely He goes on to say, “everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not do them will be like a stupid foolish person who built his house upon the sand.”
Your house, the spirit man, is built on the foundation of what you believe in, whether it be yourself or others. Please listen to Jesus words and make Him the foundation of your house to help you weather the storms that come into your life.
