How’s Your Foundation?

Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.

But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great.”
Luke 6:47-‬49 NASB

Recommended reading: Matthew 7:24-27 and James 1:22-25

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne O God, and I will search Your word and strive to act upon it so I can muster the storms of life, well built on the Rock of my salvation. I am seeking the city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is You, God. It is there that I shall store up for myself a good foundation for the future, so that I may take hold of that which is life indeed! And when the whirlwind passes, the wicked will be no more, but Your righteous ones have an everlasting foundation in You. Praise Your holy name, amen.
Psalm 89:14/Psalm 97:2/Hebrews 11:10/1 Timothy 6:19/Proverbs 10:25 NASB

🌹For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work.
1 Corinthians 3:11‭-‬13 NASB

O God My Salvation

My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.
My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken.
On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah.
Psalms 62:1‭-‬2‭, ‬5‭-‬8 NASB

Do you know God as your rock? Your stronghold? Your hope? Your strength? Your refuge? Your trust?

Troubles? Burdens? Feel lost?

🌹Wait in silence for God only. Pour out your heart before Him; God is our refuge.

The Rock

The righteous man will flourish like the palm tree, He will grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 

Planted in the house of the Lord, They will flourish in the courts of our God.

They will still yield fruit in old age; They shall be full of sap and very green, 

To declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Psalms 92:12‭-‬15 NASB

The righteous man, planted in the house of the Lord, will bear fruit, even in old age, and proclaim that the Lord is upright and righteous.

🌹 Is He your rock in whom there is no unrighteousness?

Continually Seeking Him,

Everlasting Rock

Who is among you that fears the Lord, That obeys the voice of His servant, That walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God. Isaiah 50:10 NASB

The darkness of the world is all around us. People are living in fear and uncertainty. This environment can cause the one who fears the Lord, that obeys Jesus, is a child of God, to walk in darkness and fear just as the world fears. What is the answer?

“trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God.”

Long for the presence of the Lord. Seek Him diligently. Learn God’s righteousness. Experience His sovereignty.

At night my soul longs for You,
Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently;
For when the earth experiences Your judgments
The inhabitants of the world learn righteousness. Isaiah 26:9

God is at work. Let Him fulfill His will.

I will go away and return to My place
Until they acknowledge their guilt and seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me. Hosea 5:15

Prayer:

“God, You are my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For You, Lord God, are my strength and song, And You have become my salvation.” Isaiah 12:2

🌹Trust in the Lord forever, For in God the  Lord, we have an everlasting Rock. Isaiah 26:4
