“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” Matthew 7:24

Does my faith remain strong under life’s pressures? Do I continue to believe God loves me and is in control of all my circumstances when things go badly wrong? Knowing Jesus’ words is not enough. Do I put them into practice?
