My dear friend, it's a joy to greet you. Today, we are meditating on Luke 6:47, "Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and does them, I will show you what he is like." 

When we read this verse, we see that Jesus is telling us a parable of two men who built houses. One man built his house on a rock, digging deep to create a strong foundation. When a storm came, his house remained unshaken. The other man built his house on sand, so when a storm hit, his house was destroyed. Jesus explained that those who build their homes on a firm foundation by listening to His words and following them will stand strong in the face of problems, rooted in the word of God and confident that God will take care of them. They will not fear bad news or suffering. However, those who do not follow God's word will feel confused and fearful when facing problems and lack peace in their lives. 

So today, my friend, what a joy it is that we listen to the word of God. Let's continue to apply His word in our lives. It's like a parent teaching their child to walk in the right way. If the parents don't follow the practices they preach, the child might question, "Why should I?" Whether it's about walking in the right way, reading the Bible, or being kind to others, if the child sees the parent not practising what they preach, the child might think it's okay to do the same. When parents don't put teachings into practice, children might not follow them either.

My friend, it is important for us to listen to the word of God and follow His teachings, as this will provide us with a strong foundation. When tough times come our way, we will remain steadfast. Therefore, as we engage with the word of God today, let us heed His guidance in our lives. By doing so, we will build a strong and flourishing life. Let's express our gratitude to God and accept this promise today.


Loving Lord, thank You for teaching me to put my trust in You. Every day, as I read Your word and listen to Your voice, help me follow it, Lord. Help me to do Your will, reflect Your character, and do what is right, living a holy life. I pray that when troubles come my way, and problems arise, I will never question that You are near to me. Instead, I will have the confidence that You are guiding me, leading me to a path of victory, and taking control to ensure that I am never shaken. Thank You, Lord, for helping me build my home and my life on a firm foundation, which is Your word. Help me to lead my life by example and bring glory to Your name. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
