Running with Jesus 2015


Luke 6:47-49  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.


                  One of the most burdensome things I see in this generation is the deterioration of the home and family. My heart hurts to talk to children who are from broken homes. I want to be sensitive here because I know many are in this place by no choosing of their own. But once again we find help and hope in God's Word. The problem is also prevalent in the church today. Homes are not being built on a Godly foundation. 

                The foundation of a home should be built upon Biblical principles. The problem most Christians go to church but never apply the Word, God's principles in their personal lives. I know this first hand. My life was crumbling until I latched onto God's Word and began to live by them. 

                Jesus taught His disciples those who hear my word's and obey them will have a house that will withstand the storms of life. A home built upon the earth, other translations say sand, will wash away and the house will fall. 

                  Oh Church wake up! Satan has diluted and polluted your thinking. You are believing and falling for the same lie Eve did in the garden many years ago, Genesis 6:36 "And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat."

                The world paints us a much smoother path to run on but it is filled with hidden pitfalls that will slow you down and cause you injury. 

                 God's way is the best way, don't leave His side for a moment press on as hard as you can. If you have gotten off the path for a little while get back on and catch up because the race isn't over till the finish line. Get in the Word of God and start digging in as deep as you can.


Father, help us build our foundation so we can stand the storms of life. Thank You for always being there waiting for us to return when we stray and thank You for being our Sustainer of life. Open the eyes of the body and give them a hunger for Your Word. Lord, You don't promise storms want come in our lives but You promise to help us run through the storms.   We love You, Father!


Change your shoes, going to run on new ground tomorrow!

Headed to Capernaum! Don't quit much to see in this place!
