Strong Foundations

"Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”(Matthew 7:24-27)
We have seen recently what a severe storm can do to a house, a vehicle, even a sturdy bridge. Man is no match for the power of the wind and rushing waters. All the many rebuilding mission trips I have participated in have taught me one thing if anything: the only true foundation upon which we can stand is Christ! He alone will allow one to survive a storm! I have heard many testimonies of lost homes, evacuated towns, and even loss of family members' lives, but one thing has stood out from all the testimonies: God remains faithful! The ones who have faith in the promises of God and not the hopes of man make it through. Faith in the Creator will keep us through any storm. Knowing ones life is kept eternally secure in Christ is indeed a security beyond all understanding. Where is your faith today? Is it in your retirement plan, your investments, your home, or in Christ? Are your prepared for the waters to rise and for the winds to blow both literally and spiritually? Houses can be rebuilt. Vehicles can be replaced. A soul however has only one hope . . . make your choice today! He alone ensures our eternity!
