When we hear that a storm is coming we rush to our homes to find safety. We have made sure that it was built on a solid foundation. But what do we do when the storms of life come our way; where do we run? Is your house of faith built on a strong foundation? Will it stand strong no matter what winds of trouble Satan may hurl your way?
Our house of faith should be built on our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. “How do I do that?” You might ask. We build our foundation of trust by getting in the Bible on a daily basis; not just reading it but actually studying it. Before we start our study we should confess our sins to God and our Father will forgive the sins we confess and cleanse us of the sins we are unaware we committed. 1 John 1:9 Then we ask God to speak to our hearts and show us what we need to learn from the day’s scripture. Of course we should also be in a church under a pastor/teacher’s teachings. And we spend time with God in prayer talking to Him. You can’t know someone you don’t spend time with and you can’t trust someone you don’t know. That’s how we build our house of peace and faith. He tells us in Psalm 55:22 to cast all our cares upon Him and He will give us rest. He will actually carry the burden for you. But you need to build that house of trust brick by brick of learning and claiming God’s principles. We test God’s Word to see if it is true. He doesn’t mind, in fact He tells us to in Malachi 3:8-10. I can tell you this, the more you test the more you will see that God does not lie. He has always kept His promises and He always will. There is absolutely nothing too strong and big for God to handle. We are His children and He wants His children to trust Him and rely on Him. Just as we want to spend time with our kids God desires to spend time with us. So I urge you to take a little time every day and set it aside for you and God; use that time to talk to Him and get to know Him. I can tell you the more you know Him the more you will want to know Him. God is good all the time.
God bless you and thanks for stopping by.
