Matthew 7:24-27 English Standard Version (ESV)
Build Your House on the Rock
24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”
THINGS ARE DIFFERENT ~
Life changes and if build our house on the truth of God, we will stand
As my daughter and son in law are rebuilding after the fires of Napa, I see how long the process is just to get started. There is more than one person along the way that needs to input in the plans. It has been 9 months now and still no foundation laid. Waiting on the plans to be made and approved. They have their land and it had to be cleared from what the fire left. So many trees destroyed too and now in the waiting stages of what's next. But it was in the fires that little vase survived with the word faith on it. I will never forget how out of the ashes, the only thing was the word faith. That word faith became a strong word.
FAITH ~ is what we need during all times of life. It is something we can not see but we know is there. It takes more than faith at times and we must put action to that faith. Have you heard that action speaks louder than words? God is good and we don't know why somethings happen but they do. We can't see the plan of God, but we know to rest in knowing if we build our spiritual life on a firm foundation, God is able to help us.
My prayers are with you, your family and friends.
