Matt. 7:24, 25 says, “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.”
Jesus is giving us a picture of a house and the foundation upon which it is built. The purpose of His “sayings” is not physical but rather spiritual and emotional. Have you ever had the rain of heartache descend upon you? How about a flood of pain? Or, perhaps, the wind of the boss breathing down your neck? Our lives should be build on “The Rock, Jesus Christ.” We should hear and obey His Word; and then when the issues of life flood over us, the biblical foundation will keep us standing. If Jesus and His biblical principles are not your foundation, today is the day to come to Him and begin building properly!
