Matthew 7:24 “Everyone then who hears these words of MINE and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.”
Each word in HIS WORD is a footprint with depth.
Some go deeper whilst others rest higher.
There are anchors for Faith and uplifting announcements
for those who will follow HIS steps.
On paths walked uniquely by each of HIS own,
so some stand on HIS steadfast foundations.
Yet between Doubt’s extremes will most others still shuffle…
apart from the peace of Heav’ns Home.
Before “traffic” — directing; take heed to your ways then
ensuring HIS WORD is alive in your life!
Then CHRIST’s compass shall guide you to preach about Calvary’s
most precious and firmest foundation!
As HIServant in your service building only on the ROCK,
Devotional: Matthew 7:25 “And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the ROCK.”
In Matthew 7:24-25 we see that the wise build on the bedrock for their homes. Construction of tall buildings today are no different. It’s common sense when you look at the following verse.
Matthew 7:26 “And everyone who hears these words of MINE and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand.”
As such, no bank would ever fund a huge skyscraper which was built on anything less than bedrock. Our analogy, though quite clear and basic, is spiritually true as well.
Psalm 127:1 “A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.”
If we choose not to walk with GOD WHO builds our temple, aren’t we foolish? No matter how much we plan our own paths and build on what we think in the Flesh…it will always be as Solomon cried out. “Vanity!” Pointless, worthless, and ending in destruction.
It’s almost like saying one who builds out of Pride is striving FOR Destruction given these written truths HIS WORD shares. But GOD! HE gives us Hope and a Future BY building wholly upon HIMSELF!
Psalm 18:2 “The LORD is my ROCK and my Fortress and my Deliverer, my GOD, my ROCK, in WHOM I take refuge, my Shield, and the horn of my Salvation, my Stronghold!”
Glory! Give all glory to our MASTER BUILDER WHO formed our temples for the journey until redrawing our souls to Heaven!
1 Corinthians 3:11 “For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is JESUS CHRIST.”
Lastly but far from least, stability in Life only comes from HIS firm foundation. 100% on CHRIST. Not any other ratio, not any combination of self righteousness and HIS perfection.
Just JESUS! Go then and build likewise with others! Deconstruct every portion which isn’t HIM and build daily with those of like faith!
Amen and amen!
