“And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon the house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.”
Matthew 7:25 (KJV)
All of us have or will experience a storm at some point. What will determine if we get through the storm, will be the foundation on which we stake our lives. If our foundation is the things which hold no value and will pass away, then we won’t make it through the storm. Yet if we build our foundation on Jesus who is the rock and is everlasting, we will go through the storm and come out stronger.
Lots of times we view our trials from the wrong perspective; seeing them as punishment from God, instead of opportunities for him to strengthen us to perform what he has called us to do. Remember that God can turn any situation into triumph because we forever have the victory through Christ. And the first step to obtaining that victory is building on the right foundation.
