How to Stand in Any Storm
Jesus gave us the full proof plan for surviving any storm life throws at us, and we need that now more than ever. It is found in Matthew 7:24-25 NCV
“Everyone who hears my words and obeys them is like a wise man who built his house on rock. It rained hard, the floods came, and the winds blew and hit that house. But it did not fall, because it was built on rock.”
It goes on to say that the person who does not obey His Word will be destroyed.
I saw a news report yesterday of some multi-million-dollar homes that slid down the hill into the sea because they were not build on solid rock. This is what will happen to anybody’s life that is not built on the rock of God’s Word.
So, what it the plan?
Hear Jesus’ Words.
Obey Jesus’ Words.
It is that simple. But it is not that easy. Why? Because Satan does not want you to stand and will do everything He can to get you to move off the Word of God.
In Mark chapter 4 Jesus tells us that IMMEDIATELY after the Word of God is sown into a person’s life, Satan comes to take it away. What is Satan after? You would think it is you, but actually it is the Word of God. Satan knows that if He can take the Word of God out of your life, your doomed.
That is why you need to hear the Word of God, believe the Word of God, and do the Word of God – no matter what, and for however long it takes. Some storms are shorter, and some longer, but the plan is always the same.
What is God saying to you? How has He spoken to you through His Word, by His Spirit, in a dream, through other people? Whatever it is, do not let Satan steal it from you. Believe it. Do it. And when the storm is past, you will still be standing! Jesus said so.
