Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. – Matthew 7:24-25
Jesus said that many storms will come. These storms come both on the wise people who build their house on the rock as on the foolish who build their house on sand. When you build your house on the rock, you deal with the same storms as everybody else, but your house will remain standing.
There are marriages and churches going through great hurricanes, but still they stand firmly and get through the storm. You are able to get through it with Jesus. Unfortunately, you also see many marriages falling apart, churches are falling apart and cease to exist, and many people do not serve God any longer.
The secret to victory
The secret is not for the Lord God to take away such hurricane; that will not happen. The secret to victory is to build on Jesus. If your marriage is built on Jesus, it will last. If the church is built on Jesus, the church will stand. If your spiritual life is built on Jesus, you will live.
The storms remain, the hurricanes become fiercer and bigger, but the Lord Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, is doing something inside of you which makes you float above the storms and hurricanes. In other words, despite the hurricanes you will still have peace, tranquility and joy.
The storms are around you, but as you have been building on the Rock, you are steadfast. You can be moved, but the Rock cannot; that Rock is unshakable! It cannot be swept away by the hurricane. That is why you are safe with Jesus.
The Bible says that God is a shelter for all who hide with Him. Psalm 91:1 says: ‘Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
