Your life is built on the rock of Jesus.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain fell, the torrents raged, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because its foundation was on the rock” Matthew 7:24-25, Berean Study Bible.

Jesus talks about the wise man who hears and applies His words. He likens this person to someone who has built their house on the rock. My sister, all of the revelation and understanding you’ve been receiving from the Lord over the years. All of the teaching you’ve been moving from your Thinker to your Knower. All of the looking for ways to apply God’s word to situations you face. All of it has prepared you for the storm. People around you will look in amazement because you may be experiencing the worst storm of your life, but you will not crumble.

God truly lives within you.

It’s not that you’re so strong. It’s God’s display of mighty strength in you. It’s Jehovah Gibbor Milchamah, the Lord Mighty in Battle, working in you and helping you stand. It will amaze even you. You don’t have to fear the heavy rains, floods, and strong winds when they come because you know that you know your life is established on the foundation of Christ.

Prayer: Father, I thank you that my life is built on the rock of Jesus. Thank you for preparing me for the storms of life. Every time you nudged me to come away and pray and spend time in your word, you were preparing me. Every time you gave me understanding and a new way of seeing things, you were preparing me. Every time you helped me apply your word in a situation and do things your way, you were preparing me. Thank you, Father. I ask that you continue to strengthen my foundation in you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  6. It sounds tiny but these days I don’t steal anything even when broke (I know I’m ratchet). But this is a big improvement in my faith cuz previously I thought it didn’t prosper me to follow God’s rules. My main problem is not cussing random ppl out in everyday life, raging explosive at petty things. I know I really do suck. Working on it tho.
