Build Your House on the Rock

Stop thinking about the problem. Whatever you focus on you multiply in power over you.

Focus on the finished work of the cross. Search for and focus on scriptural promises that relate to the issues that seem to be pressing in on you.

Dream dreams. Envision yourself wrapped lovingly in the arms of the Father. Speak life over your situation. Encourage yourself in the Lord. Stir up your hope by guarding your heart and mind from contaminating influences. Set your heart and mind on things above, not on earthly things.

Everything, everything, you see with your eyes is transient. Keep an eternal perspective. Hold everything and everyone loosely. Only one thing is constant and unchanging.

Build your life on God and His word and the flood waters of life when they come won’t take you under.

“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. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
-Matthew 7:24-27
