YOUR LIFE IS A “HOUSE” – Pastor Chris
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26, 2022
And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified (Acts 20:32).
Sometimes, there’re those who say, “I want to build my life financially, “or” I want to build my life spiritually….” It makes no difference in which area you desire to build your life; what you need is God’s Word. That’s the only material given to us to build our lives. God’s Word will build you up spiritually, mentally, financially, emotionally, physiologically, etc. Read our theme verse again!
Your life, according to the scriptures, is like a house to be built, and that’s why Jesus said anybody who hears, does, and lives His Word is like a man who built his house on a rock. He said, “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” (Matthew 7:25).
However, the one who doesn’t give heed to the Word is likened to a man who built his house on sand and when the storms of life beat against the house, it came to a ruinous end: “…great was the fall of it” (Matthew 7:27). Build your life on the Word; it makes no difference the crises and adversities that come against it; it’ll remain standing, and it’ll be a great edifice! Praise God.
Oh, the transforming and translational power of God’s Word! I’ll forever stand strong and tall, even in the midst of the harshest of storms, because my life is built on the Word. The Word infuses boldness, excellence and dominion into my spirit. It keeps me in health, strength and victory, causing me to experience unprecedented progress, peace and prosperity in my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
James 1:22-25 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
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: 25 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. 26 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: 27 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.
