What's your foundation?

Matthew 7:24-27 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Over the past weekend, we had some incredible storms with snow falling up north at Mount Hermon, and rain falling across all of Israel. I'm always amazed at how fast the rain creates rivers in the desert. Anything caught in the middle of its path finds itself destroyed.

Right now, we're in the part of the rainy season called the "malkosh" or the latter rain. In this passage, Yeshua (Jesus) is talking to Jews, of course. They were familiar with the rain and how vigorously it comes down in these seasons. They knew not to build their houses on sand — or else they would quickly collapse when the rains came!

The Lord is warning us about building our houses on weak ground. He knew that stormy seasons would come and He wants us to be prepared!

We don't want to be one of the many whose houses will collapse because they were built on fame, fortune or even seemingly innocent things like family, tradition and good works. We want to be of those who've established our foundation upon the ROCK of the truth of His Word and who will be able to weather the coming storms because of it!

Are there storms raging about you today? Let's hurry and examine whether our lives are completely built upon the Rock.
