24 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:
25 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.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

MESSAGE: – Open Heaven 5 February 2019 Tuesday Daily
As seen in today’s Bible reading, the Holy Spirit often uses
the characteristics of storms figuratively to teach about human situations. I
therefore believe that understanding the nature of storms will help us triumph
over the challenges of life. In the physical realm, storms are violent
disturbances of the atmosphere, usually accompanied by rain, strong winds,
thunder, lightning or snow. Approaching with high speed, storms often render
their victims virtually helpless, leaving them with few or no options in terms
of defense or counter attack. For this reason, storms can leave behind a trail
of destruction of life and property of catastrophic magnitude.
The good news is, irrespective of their nature, God has control over storms! Even the strongest storms are subject to His authority. Nahum 1:3 declares that the Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and several other passages of the Bible depict God as walking on the wings of the wind and riding on storms (2 Samuel 22:11, Psalm 18:10, Psalm 104:3).

Job 38:1 tells us that God answered Job out of the whirlwind as though He has been reclining there, and in Mark 4:39, amidst a terrible storm, Jesus Christ arose, rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, “Peace, be still!” in obedience to His command, the wind immediately ceased, and there was a great calm. In the Name that is above all other names, I command every raging storm in your life to cease now.
Since little or nothing can be done to neutralize a raging
storm by way of prevention or defense, the Holy Spirit teaches that the wise
thing to do is to prepare for it. Preparing for the storms of life ranks so
high in importance that today’s Bible reading classifies all of mankind
according to their preparedness. The well prepared ones are tagged wise, while
the unprepared are called foolish. Note that both the wise and foolish will be
subjected to the adversity of the storm, and no one will be exempted. You
therefore need to be adequately prepared for storms by holding on to Jesus, who
is a shelter in the midst of the storm! God will deliver you from every storm
of life in Jesus’ Name.
