Everyone who hears my teaching and applies it to his life can be compared to a wise man who built his house on an unshakable foundation. When the rains fell and the flood came, with fierce winds beating upon his house, it stood firm because of its strong foundation. Matthew 7:24-25
This week may have shaken you but guess what? You’re still standing! Looks to me like perhaps you’re one of the wise ones who have actually applied what you’ve heard. Being a doer instead of just a hearer makes all the difference in the world. A good foundation does that you know.
The rains may come and they will. the water may rise and threaten to wash away what you’ve build, but guess what? If God himself has to stand as a shield to the floods, He will. If He has to stand between you and the strong winds, He will. If your foundation is built on His Word and you hold fast to the truth of it, nothing can destroy you.
But verses 26-27 say this: But everyone who hears my teaching and does not apply it to his life can be compared to a foolish man who built his house on sand. When it rained and rained and the flood came, with wind and waves beating upon his house, it collapsed and was swept away.
It’s all about application, isn’t it? You can have paint in a paint can but until you apply it to your walls, they won’t be finished. You can have multiple bibles setting around your house but until you know the Word (Jesus) and apply the truth of Him to your life, He remains a story hidden within the book.
Don’t get so caught up with life that you forget the Giver of life. Relationship changes everything.
Until Next Week,
