BUILT - NEW PREACHING SERIES

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

TODAY'S EPISODE NOTES 

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

  • HOUSE – represents any and every sphere of your life:

    • Spiritually/Walk with God/Prayer Life/Faith Life

    • Physically/Health/Strength

    • Mentally/Emotionally

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.
