IT FELL NOT: FOR IT WAS FOUNDED UPON THE ROCK.
Jesus saying this word in Matthew 7:25 gives us a path to life.
Matthew 7:25 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.
We can pick different things from this word spoken to us if we also take our readings from the previous verse we shall see that…
A man that do the will of God always will not fall but stand, no matter the circumstances.
When you build your life around truth there is no shaking for you. Truth is a wall that stands when every other walls fall.
Truth is a foundation that holds a life from falling even when errors fly around. So strong to hold the life firm, so firm to keep it from shaking.
Where a life is founded matters a lot because of the days of shaking. Truth of God’s word is the surest foundation for life.
Where you are founded guarantee your stand or your fall. Truth holds a life and built the life. Truth in God’s word is it.
Every man seek not to fall but not all dare to know how not to fall or what can keep them from falling. Many have not cared on what can keep a life for ages. We hear of some building that has been for over 100-200years that still stands. This is due to their foundations even the builders that built it. The materials for building is important even as the foundation.
Strong foundation makes a strong life, not a hard life.
Truth will keep a man for life. Jesus gave us the reason why a life can stand and endure the shaking that may come. It fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
No wonder Jesus speaking to Peter he said not because Peter’s name mean stone but upon this rock, He was the rock, and He said I will build My church and the gate of hell shall not prevail against it.
Jesus was the rock. He said in another place, I am the way, the truth and the life. Truth is the rock, when a life is built on the truth of God’s word he will abide forever. Jesus building the Church upon the Rock which is Him, looks to holding His Church forever and not falling such that the gate of hell can not prevail against it.
This always is true for God’s economy system, never to run dry.
Stay with the word, abide by the truth of God’s word and keep it, then your life is guaranteed to endure and stand forever even when others fall.
