Mat 7:24 “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:
Mat 7:25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
Without going into the “how to’s” of what is required to build your house upon the Rock – the point is that HEARING and DOING are required.
Lucky for us though, that the Lord has made us to hear and to do of His good pleasure.
If it is left up to us we would never hear and do.
But He saved us and caused our spirit to be wed with His Spirit so that we are now ONE SPIRIT!
All revelation is by the spirit. In the depths of our being WE DO HEAR HIM.
And out from those same depths ‘we live and move and have our being’.
We are not in the flesh—that is we do not live in the flesh. The old fake identity based upon this fallen earth lives there.
We do not live there anymore- for He has taken us out of that place and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.
We live in the SPIRIT now that Jesus is ONE with us in Spirit.
It is God who is working in us to will and to do for his good pleasure.
If that is true then OUR LIVES ARE BUILT UPON THE ROCK.
No matter what comes against us and what is happening all around us WE REMAIN FIRMLY GROUNDED IN HIM.
We cannot be moved or shaken for the ROCK HIMSELF is our firm foundation.
Nothing shall by ANY MEANS HARM US.
God is our refuge and a very present help in times of trouble.
We are not moved.
Our HOUSE–is God and He is not moved.
We live in Him.
Let waves come, let winds batter – but we shall not be moved.
Jesus could stand in the midst of the storm and command the wind and the waves to BE STILL…and they obeyed His voice.
Because He lived and was HID and was resting in the cleft of the Rock — HIS FATHER.
Only those who live in the ROCK can tell the storm to be still.
Psa 46:1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. A Song For Alamoth. God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.
Psa 46:2 Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Psa 46:11 The LORD of hosts is with us; The God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah
Just at the break of dawn –Psalm 46:5 God shall help her….
Just as dawn breaks is the DARKEST TIME OF THE NIGHT AND THE COLDEST.
God loves to leave it to the last minute to intervene and deliver.
Faith is required.
Supernatural deliverance – not the arm of the flesh is required.
Meditate on that Psalm.
God is our refuge and strength….not up there in heaven BUT WITHIN US–in our heart.
A very present help in trouble….VERY PRESENT–NEAR–INSIDE US!!
Based upon His nearness to us WE WILL NOT FEAR–GOD IS WITH US!!
God is in the midst of her – the RIVER OF JOY that flows out from the holy of holies inside OUR HEARTS…
She shall not be moved!! Those who dwell in the secret place of the MOST HIGH shall not be moved.
God who is with us SHALL MAKE WARS TO CEASE!!
BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD.
Our LORD JESUS who dwells inside of GOD ALSO DWELLS AND ABIDES IN US.
He shall DELIVER US and cause us to walk on HIS HIGH PLACES with Him.
This is why He has brought us to Himself.
Rest my child–I shall be EXALTED AMONG THE NATIONS AND IN ALL THE EARTH.
THE ROCK HAS SPOKEN.
