“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. Matthew 7:24
Inner peace is something we long to have to be at peace with oneself. It is sure to come when we pray and ask God to reveal himself and his will for us through the reading of his Word. The story of the Wise & Foolish builders in this same chapter of Matthew verses 25-27-give us a clear picture of what the outcome is-when we are hearers of the Word and not doers of the Word. Let us put into practice Gods Word- Be wise and built your spiritual life on the Rock and not be complacent and build it on sinking sand. When the rain comes down and the stream rises, the winds blow and beat against our home- will we stand firm or will we fall with a great crash.
Prayer: Sovereign Lord and Savior, there is none like you. You are the author of life and giver of each and every day. Help us o Lord to build our life on the solid rock and not on sinking sand. Empower us to stand faithfully on your Word and to daily seek you as we read your Word. Amen
