ImageWhen The Storms come…

Jesus said these words Matt 7:24-25“Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: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.”KJV

Jesus tells us that even though we do the will of God doesn’t mean we are not going to go through trails and storms they are going to come into our lives no matter what,

Jesus is promising you and I hey!  IT’S not an IF but A When the storms will come.  But it matters what you do in the storm that will determine if you fall or rise live or die be victorious or a victim.

He says if you  hear my words  and do them obey them walk them you are a wise man because when the storms and rains and winds come and the beat upon you your marriage family home job finances, ministry your whole world that’s what house means you will not fail, fall or die because you have built your house world upon me the rock. 

The word storm means: a strong wind with rain, snow, hail or thunder and lightning a heavy violent outbreak  and outburst  and disturbance of elements coming down it also means being rushed and attacked.

Jesus said listen they will come..and how many know when they come upon us we need to have Jesus in our hearts and our minds  and also in our acts and walks.  Or we will fail. 

Jesus gives this warning to those who don’t listen to what he says what will happen

Matt 7:26-27 “But those who hear my instructions and ignore them are foolish, like a man who builds his house on sand. 27 For when the rains and floods come, and storm winds beat against his house, it will fall with a mighty crash.”TLB

The key word here is When…..the storms and rains will come into our life’s. 

Listen Jesus tells us about the storms and the rains to prepare us but to lets us know that Salvation is real the Devil is real but most of all God is real he will see you through the storms but you need to trust in him.  God will bring you through the storms. 

When storms come don’t wonder why is this happening to me it happens to all of us

1 Peter 4:12-13“Dear friends, don’t be bewildered or surprised when you go through the fiery trials ahead, for this is no strange, unusual thing that is going to happen to you. 13 Instead, be really glad-because these trials will make you partners with Christ in his suffering, and afterwards you will have the wonderful joy of sharing his glory in that coming day when it will be displayed.”TLB 

The most common thing when Christians go through storms or trails is why is this happening to me for. And the question should be why not. We need to stop being so surprised when we go through the storms nowhere does God’s word say that you will not go through the storms

We forget that we even had them when we were not with Jesus and we got it better know because we don’t go through them alone like we use to.

We got Jesus know we can lean on him we didn’t have no one before to lean on.

Do you remember your past when you didn’t have Jesus and you were alone I do 

I remember it was so sad it was ugly it was scary.. I thank God for Jesus 

I dint have Jesus I had to figure everything out myself and it always got me more depressed and hurt and wrong decisions

We forget this you guys we got it better with Jesus and he promises that he doesn’t leave us in the storm he is right there.   Tell your neighbor he is right there in your storm.

God is with you in the storms  Church everyone Goes through trails everyone around this world every Christians does and if they can make it so can you

  • 1 Peter 5:8-9“Be careful-watch out for attacks from Satan, your great enemy. He prowls around like a hungry, roaring lion, looking for some victim to tear apart. 9 Stand firm when he attacks. Trust the Lord; and remember that other Christians all around the world are going through these sufferings too.”TLB

The devil makes you feel like you’re the only one..  In here right know everyone is going through there storm or will go through one or is going to go through on

But he is with you …..look at your neighbor and say he is with you.

There is a lot of things storms do if you are not prepared and you get hit in the storm without Jesus.

Storms cane bring a lot of Destruction 

If you are not prepared before the storm it will bring a lot of destruction to your life marriage and home and finances this is why Jesus says don’t wait for the storm to hit its going to but the key is preparation

Obey Jesus know…walk Jesus know and it will save you from a lot of destruction that is very unnecessary.  The sad thing about storms is not the storm but the hurts and pains and destructions could have been avoided. 

Storms can affect your salvation 

Some people never bounce back and if they do there is a lot of emotional healing that needs to take place and a lot of misunderstandings there 

It could make a person give up on what God has for them and there family it can take your joy out f your life and your family.  Because of the head is sick the whole body will be too.

This is why parents both of you need to be founded upon a rock,  because of you being the head you bring life and direction and guidance to the body and if you the head is not right the whole body will be wrong and sick 

This is why David said Lord renew a right spirit in me…. Because eit affects everyone around you if your salvation is affected and again it could have been avoided if you did what Jesus told you to do. 

This goes for your marriage your home and your finances and children.  What well what do you mean.. 

What does Jesus say about your marriage…..love one another Husband love your wife like Christ loved the church

Wife God says respect your husband and reverence him and submit unto him for God’s glory if this is not done then when again I say when because they will when the rain comes and beats upon your house the house means your everything within your walls of your life. 

Marriage children home finances ministry it won’t fall because you doing what God says and walking it but if you don’t it will fall and the bible says great will be that fall. 

Your finances…put God first or if you don’t the rain will come and you will be devastated

Your children obey what God says and train up your child in his ways or when the rain comes and they will great will be there fall.

Its sounds simply but many find it hard to do because of pride, compromise, or just a lack of concern

Storms can make a person isolate themselves

I have seen people and I know we have too they go through storms and they fall away from people they withdraw that’s the wrong thing to do.. It’s never right or good to withdraw from god’s people Gods house or God himself.. that only brings confusion and darkness into our lives

Then we get deceived we get weird we get bitter we get offended. When we withdraw from God we get close to Satan always remember that. 

Then you got those that say well I love God but I just am not going to church or with his people. Impossible,  How can you love God but not want to be around his house and his people and his love again it’s easy to get deceived and also justify our ways 

But if you really think about it what would God tell you to do…believe me he won’t say stay away from my people and my house and just handle this all alone. 

God always works in harmony not disharmony and in unity not disunity that’s what thekingdomofGodis all about

Storms can make you want to run away from all that God has for you

I have seen many just give up on all that God has for them and think they will live a life better without God or his will for their life’s. 

Listen all that we have is because of God 

If it took God to get us this far it will take God to get us the rest of the way 

If it took God to get our life’s in order it will take God to keep it in order

If it took God to give us a life it will take God to keep our life and all that’s init.

The enemy strategy is to make you think you can run from God and still have a blessed life its only blessed if God is in it  And God only blesses obedience not disobedience. 

Our life’s do not get better running away from God and what he has for us it only get worse and it’s the beginning of our sorrows not the end.  So many men and women of God had to learn this the hard way.

God wants to be with you in the storm that’s what it’s all about This is what Jesus is saying.. Obey my word and walk in it and when the storms come you will be stable and blessed and happy.

Listen Church there is going to be storms and that’s the way life is still.  And I know it makes us wonder how can God let these things happen to us

How can God just stand by and watch us suffer.  Where is God when it really hurts?  Maybe God is actually closer to us than we think Maybe it’s when were in these situations, where everything seems to be falling apart.  That God gets an opportunity to remind us of how much he really loves us.

I just want to say God loves you and he is with you in the storm.. Pass the TEST.
