If you had a choice to have your home build, there would be much to consider to making sure your home is build like you like it. However you choose to build your home, what you focus on the most will determine your priority. Whether it be the walls, the floors, the foundation, or the type of materials used, will determine if your home will be able to withstand the elements.
If you build your home on materials that look good, but are not durable, how long will your home stand? Storms come, and your home sways from one side to the other, and the materials of your home are slowly being blown away. But one strong storm comes, and takes away your home. That’s when you realize, but it’s too late, it’s not about the look, but the strength and the material of the foundation of which you’ve build your home.
We are God’s building, and He is our foundation. If we build on God’s foundation with the things of this world, every storm of life will have its way with us. Every storm will slowly take away a piece of us, destroying us, until satan is ruling us.
We must be wise what goes inside of us, and that it aligns with what God has build within us. How we continue to build on God’s foundation, will determine if we are able to stand against the storms of life. If we continue to build ourselves with the word of God, no storm and no man will be able to stand against us.
Let’s not be concerned about how good we look with what we have around others. But, by keeping your foundation strong by reading and meditating on the word of God, praying to our Father, listening to him, waiting upon Him, and trusting that he will see you through. By doing so, no weapon will prosper against you.
Matthew 7:24-27 (KJV) – therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And everyone that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
I Corinthians 3:9-11 (KJV) – for we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation, and another builder thereon. But let every man heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 54:17 (KJV) – no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
