As I prepare this message to you, the New Orleans area, particularly here on the West Bank, is under a stalled storm system which is creating flooding and hazardous conditions. This condition reminds me again of the inability for us as creatures to control the elements of the Creator. Surely, the "earth and all that is in it" belongs to Him. Jesus spoke about the rain, the winds and the floods. He used the natural to illustrate a spiritual truth. The "wise man" (or woman) builds his/her house on the ROCK (Jesus!) and when the storms of life come, the house will stand the test. But, on the other hand, the foolish person who depends on anyone (anything) other than Jesus Christ for the answer is building a house on sand and it will fall. Friend, I hope you are trusting the Lord Jesus for your salvation today. THERE IS NO OTHER! God bless you this week!
