Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 7:24-25(KJV): Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
Our theme scripture gives us an analogy of what it means to be a stable Christian.
As the house of God, you must be immovable and unyielding in the face of life’s worst crises.
Examine your life for a minute. Can you truly say that nothing moves you? Are you sure that you stand steadfast when the storms of life buffet you?
When weighed against this scripture, many Christians are found wanting. In reality, they live up to the scripture in Proverbs 24:10(MSG) which says, “If you fall to pieces in a crisis, there wasn’t much to you in the first place.”
You must learn to fortify your spirit. It must be the testimony of both heaven and hell that nothing moves you.
When a doctor tells you that you have three months to live, you must have the boldness to say, “You are not God, this disease has not heard the final word on this!”
When the naysayers number the final days of your ministry or business add the number of chairs or buy more equipment.
Nothing should ever shake your convictions in God and His vote over your destiny. You know whom you believe, to whom you belong and who you are!

GOLDEN NUGGET: You must learn to fortify your spirit. It must be the testimony of both heaven and hell that nothing moves you.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for my life. If God is for me, who can dare to stand against me? Like Zerubbabel asked, so do I, ‘ Who are you oh great mountain before me?” I am steady, calm and collected, watching God at work in my situations, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
