The Word Is the Foundation


It Is Written, Matthew 7:24-27,  therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock;  and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house;  and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand;  and the rain descended, the floods came,  and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell.  And great was its fall.
We have all heard the story of the two builders, and how they built their houses. 1 on rock, and 1 on sand.  It all makes sense to most people.  When Jesus told this parable,  He told the crowd that whoever did His sayings was like the first builder, and whoever didn't was like the second.
The foundation He was talking about was the Word.  When you study and meditate on the Word of God,  and do it,  your faith becomes like the solid foundation built on rock.  Whatever storms in life hit you,  your faith will get you through it,  because it is solid.
If you find that in your mind you don't have time for the Word because your life is too busy, you are building on the worst kind of sand with inferior materials.  If you were building an actual house, would you build it in a swamp,  or on shifting sands?  Probably not.
Your faith is supposed to be working on your eternal home.  Check the plans, (the Bible) can your foundation take what satan throws at it?  Have a blessed day. Praise Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
