Built on the Rock

Have you ever seen an architect or construction worker building a skyscraper on a beach? Not if they are smart.

Building on sand would even be quicker than digging down in stone and rock, but that house would be destroyed very easily. We know that a big wave may come and tear it down, but truthfully any weak or strong wave will have the power to destroy it. Because its foundation is weak, it will not be able to stand in the days of trouble.

This day comes to everybody!

This skyscraper or house symbolizes your life. And the foundation you choose symbolizes whom you decide to believe in and trust. If you choose the Rock, which is the Word of God, your house will withstand the days of trouble. However if you choose to trust in anything else besides God, one day that ‘something’ or ‘someone’ will fail you. Let us look in the Word of God where it says,

“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.”

(Matthew 7:24)

Those who build their house of the Rock are not defeated by their problems, nor are they deceived by the wrongdoings around them. Perhaps until now your house has been on the sand, and your life seems to be going from bad to worse – choose to rebuild your house of 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.”

(Matthew 7:25)

By your obedience to the Word of God, He will deliver you and strengthen you in the storms of life. Do not let emotions flood your heart and cause you to despise God’s Word. Emotion is what leads a person to build their house on the sand, but intelligent faith leads us to build on the Rock.

May the God of the Bible bless you
