And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.
The rain WILL fall, the floods WILL come, and the winds WILL blow, so be prepared! Many Christians live their lives under the false assumption that by being a believer their lives are encased in an invisible forcefield of blessings, devoid of trials. Yes, we are under God’s protection. We have access to His counsel. We enjoy fellowship with Him. But the minute we made the decision to follow Jesus, we become a blip on Satan’s radar.
We must base our relationship with God on His Word, increasing our wisdom daily so that we may be empowered to do battle when the fight comes!
