We’ve been talking about building and sowing into our future the past couple days.
I want to share with you something that has been on my heart. Something that ties into building and sowing into our future.
That is, a strong foundation.
Before building a house, there is one thing that must be completed. A foundation.
So, it is with our spiritual life. We too, must have a strong foundation. What is that foundation?
Isaiah 28:16 says; Therefore, thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am the one who has laid as a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation.”
Our sure foundation is found in Jesus Christ. He is the tested stone, the precious cornerstone of our sure foundation. That, my friend, is good news!
1 Corinthians 10:4 says; and all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ.
I love the old songs that talk about being built upon the rock. Our Rock is, again, Christ!
Our foundation is built upon Jesus and it is built with the word of God. The powerful, living, unchanging, word of the Living God!
John 1:14 says; And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
The word, itself, became flesh, in the body of Jesus. Therefore, we can take the word of God and build our foundation. Jesus tells us how in Matthew 7.
“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: 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.” Matthew 7:24-25
Luke says it like this; Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. Luke 6
Unshakable faith. An unshakable foundation is built one way…on the word of God. When we are standing in faith for something, we can’t just make it up. We must find it in the word of God and build our foundation on that living, powerful word.
There are so many promises in the word of God. I am sure you can find the answer to any problem in the word of God. We find healing in the word. We find prosperity in the word. We find relationships in the word. We find peace of mind in the word of God. Whatever you have need of is found in the word of God. We even find deliverance of nations in God’s word. All we need is there. And Jesus, Himself, tells us how to build any foundation we need to build. He shows us how to make a strong foundation.
Hear what He says in the word and do it. Hear it and do it. It’s so simple. As you hear the word of God. Or read the word of God. Put it into practice. Do what the word of God says. As you do, you begin to build your strong foundation. Your unshakable foundation.
All God has is ours. It’s His promise. We only have to study His word and do what it says. I thank God today, for our strong foundation!
“If we don’t prosper in our innermost being – our soul – we will never prosper Gods way in the natural.” KP
