BUILT

When the storms of life come, are you BUILT?

When the rains descend, floods rise and winds blow, are you unshakeable and unmovable; are you unstoppable?

Is the storm:

  • A relationship

  • A disappointment

  • A fear

  • A compulsive and destructive behavior

  • An under resourced vision

  • A biological weakness

PSALM 127:1-5 NKJV (Solomon said) Unless the LORD BUILDS the house, They labor in vain who BUILD it; 

  • QUESTION: HOW DOES THE LORD BUILD THE HOUSE?

MATTHEW 7:24-27 NKJV (Jesus said) Therefore WHOEVER hears these SAYINGS OF MINE, and DOES THEM, I will liken him to a WISE MAN who BUILT his HOUSE ON THE ROCK: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who BUILT his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.

 

TO BE BUILT MEANS I MUST…

THINK it till I FEEL it,

FEEL it till I DO it,

and DO it till I LIVE it!

Real Faith in the Word says, “If God says it is true, it is.”  If God says He is the strength of my life, He is.  So I go about doing my work because He is what He says He is, and I am what He says I am.”

  • If He says I am STRONG, I am.

  • If He says I have JOY, then I do.

  • If He says SERVING OTHERS gives meaning to my life, then that is what I do.

  • If He says that GIVING FINANCIAL to His Kingdom is what multiplies my own resources, then I give.

  • If He says that MY FORGIVENESS OF OTHERS is a choice of obedience that frees up my life, then I forgive.

  • If He says that I HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN and guilt has been removed, then I am forgiven and act as though no more guilt exist.

OTHER SCRIPTURES:

PROVERBS 4:20-23 NKJV My son, give ATTENTION to my WORDS; Incline your EAR to my SAYINGS. 21 Do NOT let them DEPART from your EYES; KEEP them in the midst of your HEART; 22 For they [are] LIFE to those who find them, And HEALTH to all their flesh. 23 KEEP your HEART with all DILIGENCE, For out of it [spring] the issues of life.

PROVERBS 23:7 NKJV For as he THINKS IN HIS HEART, so [is] he…

JAMES 1:2-8 NKJV My brethren, count it all joy when you FALL INTO VARIOUS TRIALS, 3 knowing that the TESTING OF YOUR FAITH produces PATIENCE. 4 But let PATIENCE have [its] PERFECT WORK, that you may be PERFECT AND COMPLETE, LACKING NOTHING. 5 If ANY OF YOU LACKS wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ASK IN FAITH, with NO DOUBTING, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For LET NOT THAT MAN suppose that he will RECEIVE ANYTHING from the Lord; 8 [he is] a DOUBLE-MINDED MAN, UNSTABLE in ALL his ways.

JAMES 1:22-25 NKJV But be DOERS OF THE WORD, and NOT HEARERS ONLY, DECEIVING YOURSELVES. 23 For if anyone is a HEARER OF THE WORD and NOT A DOER, he is like a man OBSERVING his natural face in a MIRROR; 24 for he OBSERVES himself, goes away, and IMMEDIATELY FORGETS what kind of man he was. 25 But he who LOOKS INTO the perfect law of liberty and CONTINUES [IN IT], and is NOT A FORGETFUL HEARER but a DOER OF THE WORK, this one will be BLESSED in WHAT HE DOES.
