-“Who we are under pressure reveals who we really are!”-
These days are filled (or shall I say jammed packed) with activities, to-do items, and just plain business! when the lists mount… so does the stress. stress is too often our re-ACTION to the external environment. Does that mean that we are not supposed to have times in our lives when responsibility and action items need to take place? no… in this life we will have “floods” and “trials.” How are we re-ACTING to them!
This verse really hit me. (if you want to see the entire study I got them from check it out here: http://www.bible.com/bibleanswers_result.php?id=127
Luke 6:48″I will show you who he is like who comes to me and hears my words and puts them in to practice. He is like a man building a house who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came the torrents struck that house but could not shake it because it was well built.” Luke 6:48.
“Jesus didn’t say that once we built our house on the rock that everything would be perfect. No, He said that a flood came in torrents smashing against the house. The key is that the house was built on the rock of Jesus, and the rock of putting His words into practice.
Is your house built on Jesus?
Did you dig your foundation deep into Him, or was the house hastily erected?
Is your salvation based on a prayer you prayed once or is it growing out of a committed relationship to Him?
Do you come to Him every day, every hour?
Are you putting His words into practice in your life?
