Shared this message @ Cape Christian for anyone who’s going through the storms of life.. the title is “what’s your foundation?” Based on Matt 7:24-26 & I pray it gives you strength to make it thru the storms that we all face..

 

heres my notes: 

title: Patient Zero “Whats your foundation?”
 
intro: everyone reacts to storms differently 
-some people freak out
-some people get excited for them
-some people get crazy
-some people get stupid 
 
 
1. Spider next to my door 
-built his house in the storm 
-as the winds rose he hung on
-he didn’t crash cuz of his strength
-he hung on cuz of what he was tied to 
 
2. Scripture text 
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
 
matt 7:24-25
 
3. How to weather the storm: 
-my house survived because it was up high (we need to focus on above)
-my house survived because it was close to the power (we need the Holy spirit) 
-my house survived because it was near help (we need each other) 
-my house survived because it was boarded up (we need to protect our house)
 
4. How to not weather the storm
-have shallow roots
-have a wide base
-dont be pruned back
 
 
5. Scripture text: 
26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
 
matt 7: 26-27
 
 
 
6. You will go through a storm (examples) 
-financial 
-marital 
-personal
-physical
-spiritual 
 
 
7. the spider after the storm
-he got blown away
-he came back stronger 
-you can’t have a testimony w/out a test 
 
8. What are your storms?
-are you going through one right now?
-are you rebuilding?
-is one on the way?
