Who built your house?
Matthew 7:24-27, MSG
These Words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational Words, Words to build a life on. If you work these Words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on Solid Rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the Rock. But if you just use My Words in Bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a foolish carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. When a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.
Build on the Rock!
The way we do this, is to seek first Jesus, and then DO what He says. He speaks in many ways, but most often, I find myself reading the Scripture, and suddenly I see a passage that I need to apply to my life, something I am not doing. As I do it, and apply the life principal, I grow, and so does the quality of my life around me.
‘Father God, Build my life! I invite Your love, Your Power to come and bring true construction to our lives. Building strong relationships, family, healthy business, investments, churches in every area of our lives. I ask this in Jesus name, Amen’
