“He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.” (Luke 6:48).
The Lord Jesus in the verse above talked about the wise builder; the one who hears the Word and puts it to work. Whereas, He likened the one who hears the Word but doesn’t act on it to a man who builds his house on the sand. Such a building is without a foundation, and when the storms of life beat against it, it comes to ruin (Luke 6:48-49).
God’s Word is the material given to us to build our lives; therefore, it matters that your life is built on the solid foundation of God’s Word, and not on religious assumptions and theories of men. You must take heed to build your life according to the prescriptions of the Word. It’s like the admonition the Lord gave Moses in the Old Testament, which is reiterated for us in Hebrews 8:5,“Who serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the tabernacle: for, See, saith he, that thou make all things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount.”
The Word of God will make you what God wants you to be without your having to struggle. Remember the words of Jesus in Matthew 4:19, He said,“Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.”God’s Word will catapult you from one level of glory to a higher level; it will build your life and make you a success. If you desire good health, strength and vitality, the Word is the medicine and recipe you need. So be a wise builder; build your life with the Word, and you’ll experience tremendous progress, peace and prosperity in your life.
My path is as the shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day, because I see and live by the Word. I prosper in all things; I’m positioned and inspired by the Word to be a source of blessing, nourishment, edification, encouragement, healing, joy and inspiration to my world,
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
