Strong In The Storm - Day 2


"The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Matthew 7:27

One of these houses was built on rock, the other was built on sand. One stood strong, and the other collapsed. You can have a great-looking house, but if it's in the wrong location, watch out!

Lasting success isn't determine just by what you build, but by where you build it. Too many people have built their lives on an unstable foundation. They've built their lives upon what's popular, or what's culturally acceptable. They've built their lives around the political agenda of the time. It looks good ... until a storm comes!

When you build your life on the foundation of Christ, the storms of life won't take you out. You may feel overwhelmed and you may get hurt, but your foundation will stand firm.

Put it into practice! Write down one goal for this week that will help you build on the foundation that is Christ. Maybe you can pray for a few minutes each day, or spend some time in God's Word. Whatever you do, take action!
