Luke 6:49: But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
Hearing God’s word and not doing it is like a person who built his house without a foundation. Building our lives other than on Jesus is sure to have a great downfall. On the other hand, if we hear God’s word and build our lives on it, we shall stay strong and secure on the Rock of all ages.
God wants our life to be centered around Him. To weather every storm that we face in life, our foundation should be strong. A house built upon a strong foundation or upon a rock will weather every kind of a stormy situation. Nothing can pull a strong house down. Likewise, anybody whose life is built on Christ will be able to withstand any kind of a torrent, however, high and mighty. Some people build their lives on their own imaginations, feelings, emotions, culture, and what the society says in general. Such lives will surely not stand tough times. Feelings will change and so is emotion. God’s word is the only thing that will not change and has remained the test of time. His words never change. If you want your life to be blessed and successful, build it on His word.
God’s promises and His nature never change. If we allow our lives to be built on God’s principles, even if the whole world collapses, we will rise up and be strong. Let God’s word mould us and change our life. Therefore, hear God’s word and live by it.
