“And the rain…the floods…the winds…slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.” MATTHEW 7:25

Let not even the one who builds on the everlasting Rock of Ages think that there will be no more warfare. He or she is not out of the reach of temptation. It still remains for God to prove the grace He has given. Even the wise ones will be tried as gold in the fire, tempted not less than those who do not know God—perhaps abundantly more. For Satan will not fail to try to the uttermost those he is not able to destroy. The rain will furiously descend—only at such times and in such manner as seems good, not to the prince of the power of the air but to Him whose kingdom rules over all. The floods, the torrents, will come; they will lift up their waves and rage horribly. But the Lord sits above the waterfloods. He remains King forever, and He will say to them also, “Just to here shall you come and no farther. Here shall your proud waves be stayed.” The winds will blow and beat upon that house as though they would tear it from the foundation. But they cannot prevail; it does not fall, for it is founded upon a rock. The wise ones build on Christ by faith and love; therefore, they shall not be cast down. Though the waters rage and swell, and the mountains shake at the tempest, still they are safe under the shadow of the Almighty.
