Building your life is like building a house. If it is done right then it will stand when the storms come. However, it is too late to build your life during the storms, it must be done during the sunshiney days. You will be secure and will not be fearful if you build it with the right foundation and the right materials.
Proverbs 14:1 A wise woman builds her house but a foolish woman tears it down with her own hands.
The wise woman builds her life on the Word of God so she will be ready when the storms come. She will gain wisdom through the trials to strengthen her life so that she will not be anxious or depressed over the outcome. Neither will she be boastful for she understands that there is a Master Builder who has a design and a plan and He does not make mistakes.
I Corinthians 3:11 For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Psalm 138:2 For You have magnified Your word according to all Your name.
Luke 6:47-49 “Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and act on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; an the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great.”
If you will do exactly as the Master Builder and One who made you has instructed you, then your life will be firmly rooted and will stand strong when the storms come. You will not panic because you acted wisely.
Proverbs 24:3 By wisdom a house is built,
And by understanding it is established;
Finally, if you trust in the Lord and build your life on His Word then He will build it through you.
Psalm 127:1a Unless the Lord builds the house,
They labor in vain who build it;
