The storm is an opportunity in disguise to revisit our preparations for life and readiness for present and future victories. Enjoy these two messages on Digging Deep on Rock and the folly of haste to Build without Foundation. God bless you
Digging Deep on Rock
We trust God that His word will enrich our lives and give us the needed guidance on building on a well laid and solid foundation – the Rock – Jesus – and as such we have christened this series of teachings – THE ROCK….because our prayer is that it will provide insights to having a stable haven in Christ against shakings that have come or yet to come. God will help us to keep standing, keep glowing, and keep burning. Our text is from Luke 6  Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will show you to whom he is like:  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.  But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
Hearing and doing the word is likened to building an house, digging deep and laying the foundations Christ the rock of ages on rock for the Bible teaches us that there is no other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
It suggests in both cases the word of God is heard but not done in the second case. Also in both cases floods and storms arose but only in one case does the house remain standing. I gather from the coverage of the earthquake in Haiti that there was so much damage in Haiti… and often similar earthquakes or floods which devastated poorer nations only shook wealthier countries …why? because of the quality of building and the foundation and reinforcements of construction… We already have seen several storms this year…it seems to be a matter of when and not if…and the issue becomes if I can weather the storm NOT if a storm is coming.

Absence of Foundation
Hearing and doing the word is likened to building an house, digging deep and laying the foundations Christ the rock of ages on rock for the Bible teaches us that there is I Cor 3:  For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
There are lives with no foundation ( simply drifting) …or an uncompleted building waiting to be pulled down… you can perceive something is not right? The foundation is the unseen part of your Christian life… The true determinant of how far you will go …
Many put so much emphasis on the visible acts of religious observation such as church attendance, altar call…joining the church /workforce…meetings and several activities and church events…But these are not foundation…the unseen personal devotions with Christ in your closet…the surrender of your heart to Christ…the repentance in your soul in obedience to Christ..your conversations with your Redeemer, Christ…your personal revelation of his salvation…the word of God – Christ the living word – hidden in your heart. Our complete trust in Christ is our source of stability. Click for more
