"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" (Matt. 7:24-25).

For years now I've been telling people to spend time in the Word. Almost everywhere I preach, no matter what topic I'm talking about, it seems I always get back to the importance of putting the Word first place in my life.

You may have heard me say it a hundred times. But you know, hearing it isn't enough. It's doing it that will give you success.

Jesus taught us that principle in Matthew 7. There He told about two men. Both of them had heard the Word, yet Jesus said one of the men was foolish and the other wise. What made the difference between the two? The wise man acted on what he heard and the foolish man didn't.

You may know full well that you need to spend time in the Word. But unless you act on that knowledge, it won't do you any good when the storms of life come.

So take action! Begin now to set aside time for the Word each day. Begin now making it the number one priority on your schedule. Don't wait until you're faced with some terrible situation or some storm of life to do it.

Have you ever tried to build a house in a storm? Ken has been through several hurricanes, and he has seen the wind blow so hard that coconuts shot through the air like cannonballs. Just think about some poor fellow out there trying to build his house with the wind blowing at 120 mph!

Don't do that. Don't wait until you're desperate to make time for the Word. Make the decision and start today.

Then, when the storms of life come against your house, you'll be sitting inside in front of the fireplace just rocking and praising God. You'll be glad that you didn't let the devil talk you into being too busy for the Word.

Speak the Word: I am a wise man because I hear God's words and I do them. (Matt. 7:24)
