You know, I often find that the Bible is not just sound advice for our spiritual lives, but it’s also loaded with good common sense and if you believe with all your heart, God will use the Word to work miracles in your life.
When I had my house built, I made sure to have it constructed in the highest lot I could find. I had prayed to God to show me where to build my house. After I had prayed, I took my Bible, closed my eyes, and found a random verse with my index finger.
The verse I found was Matthew 7:25
“And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.”
Of course, anyone who lives in the Lowcountry knows there ain’t diddly in the way of rocks big enough to build a house on, but I took this advice seriously and I did the next best thing. I took it as a sign from God and I found the highest, most solid ground I could to build my house on.
What do you know? I’m high and dry! It sure beats living in a fume-ridden FEMA trailer.
I feel bad for all these people who lost their homes in the flood, but… maybe they should read their Bible more often. God lives and He does perform miracles for those who believe!
