What is your foundation, friend?


At the bottom of everything in your life

what is your security

your strength

your purpose

your reason to live?


Maybe all you know

is to believe in your self.


And what happens when you fail?

Every self does.


Is your foundation crumbling?

Or is your foundation secure?


Because the only foundation

that will not crumble in the end

is Rock


My Rock is Jesus


He will not fail

He will not crumble


And because I am secure in Him

in His Truth

in His Word

in His Love


when I fail

I know He won’t


And we all need a foundation


for the walls we build

the walls of knowledge

of good works

of family

of purpose


will fall

without The Foundation


What a gift,

my Foundation

in Him

Those people who are listening to Me, those people who hear what I say and live according to My teachings—you are like a wise man who built his house on a rock, on a firm foundation.  When storms hit, rain pounded down and waters rose, levies broke and winds beat all the walls of that house. But the house did not fall because it was built upon rock.  Those of you who are listening and do not hear—you are like a fool who builds a house on sand.  When a storm comes to his house, what will happen? The rain will fall, the waters will rise, the wind will blow, and his house will collapse with a great crash.

– Matthew 7:24-27 (VOICE)


Therefore the Lord God says this, “Listen carefully, I am laying in Zion a Stone, a tested Stone, A precious Cornerstone for the [secure] foundation, firmly placed. He who believes [who trusts in, relies on, and adheres to that Stone] will not be disturbed or give way [in sudden panic].

– Isaiah 28:16 (AMP)


Come to Him [the risen Lord] as to a living Stone which men rejected and threw away, but which is choice and precious in the sight of God.  You [believers], like living stones, are being built up into a spiritual house for a holy and dedicated priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices [that are] acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.

– 1 Peter 2:4-6 (AMP)


Jesus Christ is the Stone on which other stones for the building must be laid. It can be only Christ.

– 1 Corinthians 3:11 (NLV

Wait with Hope

Right now you may be waiting for something from the Lord.  Matter of fact, most people I meet are in some sort of holding pattern.  (I Certainly am!)  They have something on the horizon that they’re trusting God for.  (I certainly do!)  And their hope is not misplaced.   He is good to those who wait for Him.  He is good to those who seek Him.  We have nothing to fear.  And we certainly have no reason for living each day crushed by guilt or shame…

Contrary to popular opinion, God doesn’t sit in heaven with His jaws clenched, His arms folded in disapproval, and a deep from on His brow.  He is not ticked off at His children for all the times we trip over our tiny feet and fall flat on our diapers.  He is a loving Father, and we are precious in His sight, the delight of His heart.

What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?

Since He did not spare even His own Son but gave Him up for us all, won’t He also give us everything else?

– Romans 8:31,32 (NLT)


For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

– Jeremiah 29:11 (NLT)


God proves to be good to the man who passionately waits,
to the woman who diligently seeks.
It’s a good thing to quietly hope,
quietly hope for help from God.
It’s a good thing when you’re young
to stick it out through the hard times.

– Lamentations 3:25 (MSG)


Those who do not hope cannot wait; but if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it.

– Charles Spurgeon
