Time with God - October 14, 2016

 

Matthew 7:24-27

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 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. 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. 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.”

God’s word is the solid rock on which to build your life!

Substitute your own name for “everyone” in Jesus’ words above and re-read today’s passage.

Do you see God’s message to you today? Satan wants to get your attention away from God’s word. He wants to distract you with busyness, to consume you with fear over the future, to overwhelm you with the stress of your circumstances. But through all those things come the simple clear words of Scripture, reminding us of God’s great life principles and setting our course through the storm.

Build your life on those principles and you will move peacefully through every storm, confident of God’s involvement in your life, confident to stand on his promises, confident that he is your mighty Rock.
