If God is for me . . . who can be against me?

We can control our reaction . . .

Though the Rain Comes

By Greg Laurie

 

           

LISTEN 

 

 

 

“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.”

—Matthew 7:24

 

 

 

Storms can seemingly come out of nowhere, and that can be true of life as well. It might be a hardship. It might be anxiety. Or it might be a tragedy. But it’s something that comes rather quickly, seemingly out of nowhere, and it has a significant impact on you.

 

Everyone has their own storm they deal with, and sometimes it’s a megastorm. I wish I could say that you’ve come to a point in your life where all the problems go away. But some problems are just replaced by other ones.

 

So either you’ll be pulling into a storm, or you’ll be pulling out of a storm. The good news is that storms don’t last forever. They have a beginning, a middle, and an end. And storms have their purposes.

 

Speaking at the end of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus talked about two men who built houses. One built his house on a solid foundation of rock. The other built his house on an unstable foundation of sand.

 

Jesus said, “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock” (Matthew 7:24–25 NLT).

 

“But,” He continued, “anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash” (verses 26–27 NLT).

 

The Bible says the rain will fall on the righteous and the unrighteous. We cannot control external circumstances. We cannot control what people say to us or about us. And we can’t control everything that comes our way. But we can control our reaction to it.
