THE RAIN, THE FLOODS, AND THE WINDS OF LIFE

"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]

According to Matthew 7:23-28, two men built their houses, then the rain fell, and the wind blew against them. Rain in the Bible means blessings. In other words, the blessings of God fell on the houses. Your life is like built houses. The houses look the same outwardly but when the blessing (rain) fell on both houses, one fell. It fell because it was not built on a solid foundation. The Rock is Jesus. Many Christians today have backslidden because of blessings; they fall because they lack a solid foundation. In 1 Kings 3, King Solomon had the same problem, after God blessed him; he went out with strange women: 700 wives and 300 concubines. The women turned him from God. The two houses were built and one could withstand the wind, the rain and the flood but the other couldnít. Flood speaks of the devil and his temptations. In Isaiah 59:19b, the Bible says, "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him." Nobody wants a flood of problems. Job didnít bargain for it before it happened to him. In Job 28:11a, it is written, "He bindeth the floods from overflowing." That means when the flood comes, God will say, "Stop"! God sits on the flood but if you build your house on sand, it will fall if the Word of God is not in you. The flood will shake you back and forth; the flood of problems will start taking you to witch doctors and fake prophets. Beloved, build your life on the solid rock (Word of God).

When wind blows, it blows away anything on its way but if you are on the rock, you will remain. Mark 4:37 says, "And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full." In verse 39, Jesus arose "and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm." The disciples forgot that Jesus was in the boat, and therefore the boat could not sink. Jesus lives in you. You cannot sink. He controls the wind, human life, and all situations. Build your life on the rock not on the sand because when the wind and rain comes, you will not backslide, you will not be moved and shaken.

PRAYER/CONFESSION:

Holy Spirit, begin to work in my life, help me to study the Word of God and put it to practice so that the rain, (blessing) the floods and the winds will not make me fall, in the name of Jesus.

FURTHER READING: Matthew 7:23-28

WORDS OF WISDOM: Do not allow the blessings of God make you fall.
