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.
I love this entire verse. Especially the phrase, "...yet it did not fall..." One of the greatest joys of living a life in obedience to the teachings of Jesus is the did not fall.
The house might shake and crumble a little. The siding might need to be prepared. Some shingles might fly off. You might need to do some painting where the leaks were. But when the storms of life come... which they will, the house will not fall.
Praise God for His word today. His living and powerful word that will change us.
