Build Upon the Rock

In chapel this week, we looked at a passage from Matthew.  In Matthew 7:24 – 27, Jesus tells a story about two kinds of people.  He speaks of one person who built their house on the sand and another who build his house upon a solid rock.  When a storm came, the house built on the sand could not withstand the wind and the waves.  It was destroyed.  The other house, the one built on the rock, was able to withstand the storm.  When the storm was over that house was still standing.

In our lives, we will face many storms and challenges.  There will be times of trouble and seasons of struggle when it seems like the winds and the waves are relentless.  Storms will come.  Christ promises that if will build our homes, our lives upon His word, then we will be able to endure these times of trouble and seasons of struggle.  Like the person who built his home on a solid foundation, when the storm is over, we will still be standing.

My prayer for you is that this week would be a good week.  I pray that all things will go smoothly and each day would be worry free.  But in the event that storms come, I pray that you would continue to stand firmly on God’s word, knowing that He is with you and that He will bring you through the storm.
