Many times I have wondered why I always seem to end up back at the beginning of my walk with Jesus. That is at the very beginning. All around me is a pile of torn down walls. This is usually after going through a hard time.
This is because I have built my house on the sand. When I build my house upon the sand I have built it based on my fear, my rejection, my insecurity. This can leave me thinking that Jesus loves me less then other Christians, if at all. It can leave me thinking that Jesus doesn’t actually want to rescue me from sin. It can leave me feeling alone and miserable. Hopeless.
Sinking and sinking quickly into a pit of despair.
Building my house upon the Rock is when I walk in faith knowing that he is deeply in love with me, he loves me as he has created me. It is the freedom to know he is there to help me in every situation, he will never abandon me. It is knowing that he actually likes who I am.
Today I will tear down the parts that are built on the sand and rebuild upon the rock.
What is your house built upon?
