How Is Your Foundation?

by | Jul 5, 2023 | Distraction, Foundation

“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: “Whoever believes will not be in haste.”’” (Isaiah 28:16 ESV)

“For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 3:11 ESV)

According to google, a foundation is “The lowest load-bearing part of a building, typically below ground level.” A foundation is supposed to be strong enough to hold up a building. If it isn’t, the whole building can fall.

We need to have a strong foundation in Jesus, too. We need to be firmly rooted in Him. A foundation based on God produces steadfast faith and life and allows us to be living examples to others.

How’s your foundation? 

I know mine has some gaps. Maybe a few bricks short of a complete wall. But I am working on it. I am trying to shore up my foundation. I am trying to study more and pray more, especially in tongues. For me, praying in tongues helps to clear out the cobwebs. It helps to clear my mind, and every time I do, it helps to replace the missing bricks in my foundation.

Some days are easier than others. Some days, I have no issues studying my Bible or praying. Some days, not so much. The not so much days are the ones I need to make an extra effort. But for some reason, I just don’t do it. Lazy? Maybe. Tired? Most definitely, but not a good reason. The main reason is that the devil comes to kill, steal, and destroy. And believe me, he loves to try to destroy us. He tries to distract us by throwing problems at us.

But if our foundations are strong and steady, we can withstand whatever storm comes our way.
Have a blessed day, everyone.
