MATTHEW 7:26_shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand.
Why do we make foolish decisions? Because we make them. For goodness sake, where do we come up with the idea we know what is best for ourselves? We’re sinful people born with a sinful nature. When left to ourselves we make foolish decisions.
Psalm 14:1(KJV) “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” Someone made a foolish decision to make that statement!
If there is no God we are all doomed.
Destined to build life on sandy soil.
No secure life built on the Rock.
No becoming salt and light in our dark world.
No hearts filled with genuine, unconditional, compassionate love.
No true wisdom, understanding, and knowledge.
Most of all, no hope of eternal life.
The one true God gives us, Psalm 16:9 (KJV), “Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.”
Psalm 31:24 (KJV), “Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.”
Psalm 38:15 (KJV), “For in thee, O Lord, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.”
There is nothing sandy about soil filled with hope!
God of Hope, All my hope is in You! In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ is true and eternal—He gives me hope!
