Build your house on the rock

Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock, Matthew 7:24 NKJV.

God isn’t looking for hearers only my friend. He is looking for doers of the word, for those who hear and do. He wants us to "hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred." Mark 4:20.

Hearers only, are those who when they hear the word, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts, or those who immediately receive the Word with gladness; but because they don’t practice what they hear, they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a time. Afterward, when tribulation or persecution arises for the word's sake, immediately they stumble, and some of course are those who hear the word, but the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things enters in to choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful in them. 

But He says "whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock."

It works great for you to be a doer of the word my friend, much in every way. The Lord says,"For My thoughts" and "My ways," are higher than your ways and your thoughts. He says, "For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there, But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. "For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace..." Isaiah 55:8-12. He sent His Word for your good; to proper you in your ways. But it works only for you my friend, when you hear it, receive it, and do it.

James 1:22 says, "But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves."

The Lord said, "But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand." and he finished saying, if you will not practice the word, great will be the fall of you or whatever that you’re trying to do will be in vain. We are a result of our life choices, but you my friend build on the rock.

I hear Paul say, "Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it. For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in those who heard it." Hebrews 4:1-2.

You can only benefit from this word my friend, when you hear the word and mix it with faith - practice that you hear my friend.  

God bless you,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

Why is finding God so difficult?

  God says, ‘Here I am’ My hands stretched all day long for you, but “... when I called, you did not answer; When I spoke, you did not hear, But did evil before My eyes, And chose that in which I do not delight," Isaiah 65:12. He said you’ve walked in a way that is not good, i.e. according to you own thoughts. That’s why I "was found by those who did not seek Me." ‘Here I am!‘ The good thing with God is he reveals himself to you, but sadly we choose not to see, seek, listen nor to find him. To “find God” is an expression that can mean different things to different people. For some, is getting religion, whatever religion that may be. For others, to “find God” means to “clean up one’s life,” usually with his help. In any case, to “find God” involves a change in someone’s attitude and behaviour. Biblically speaking, to find God means to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. It is only through Jesus that anyone can come to God (John 14:6), and receiving Christ results in a

You are a chosen generation

Reverend Muzembi  " Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded " 1 Peter 2:6 KJV Christ, is very precious to God. He is a chief corner stone upon this spiritual house God is building. You’re precious to God too, and " as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ " 1 Peter 2:5. We’re priests, who offer to God those things that please him - you matter so much to God. Christ is precious to you who believe in God through him, for without him we can do nothing, all our royalty is because him, and to those who reject him still he’s  precious, that when iniquity abounds they may fall. But you are not like them, for  through Christ you have been chosen by God himself, you are God's very own - all this so that you may show to others how God called you o
