What is the foundation of your faith? Who do you believe in the most? Do you have faith in Jesus or do you believe in someone else more than Him? It sounds like a silly question but if you think about who you rely on in times of trouble, you might be surprised to see that Jesus is not your first resort. Let’s say you get some bad news. Do you reach for the phone and call a friend or a relative? Do you panic and try to hide under your desk? Do you thank Jesus right away for being your help in times of trouble? Do you say confidently that Jesus is your foundation and you have nothing to worry about? When I was praying yesterday morning I had a great vision about Jesus being our foundation. The Holy Spirit took me on a tour of a place that looked firm and solid. I saw a ground that looked very nice and very strong. There was something very special about it. I quickly understood that the ground I saw was Jesus, our firm foundation.
When Jesus is our foundation, we can stand on Him and keep standing no matter what happens in our lives. There might be earthquakes brought about by sad news and bad events but with Jesus as our foundation, we can’t sink. We can’t drown when troubled waters invade our circumstances. We can see mud and soft grounds around us but our firm foundation keeps us standing. Friend, if you are a believer, you stand on solid ground. It is time that you and I took a strong stand on our firm foundation. It is time we decided to not be shaken by anything that takes place in our lives. It is time we kept on standing tall. It is time we praised the Lord even when we are facing adversity. We have the strongest foundation there is. Let’s live our lives like we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are on solid ground all the time.
Jesus is not sinking sand or a soft soil. He doesn’t bend under pressure and He doesn’t give up when the going gets tough. We are the ones who give up. He remains strong and firm. We ought to always rely on Him. The real Jesus who can’t be defeated and who can’t lose any battles. How do you get to know Him? Through His Word and through isolated and devoted time with Him. He is a Rock. He is a fortress. He is the winner of all winners. He is the firm foundation that will never let you down. He is the firm foundation that you can count on all the time. Meditate on that. You can always count on Jesus. You can count on Him even when it appears that you can’t get out of trouble. Stand on Him. Walk thanks to Him. Run with Him. Don’t let Him out of your spiritual sight. Follow His lead. Your firm foundation never disappoints.
Jesus is the firm foundation that can withstand anything. He is unbreakable. The enemy might be trying to weigh you down so you collapse and fall off your foundation but Jesus will hold you up. He won’t let the enemy get the best of you. Jesus is so solid that all the devils in hell can’t make Him break. There is nothing and no one that can destroy your foundation. Your foundation is all set. Now, it’s up to you to stand on Him and to let Him be part of you. Let Jesus be the biggest part of your life. He said that if His words remained in you, you could ask what you want and you will get it as long as it is in line with His will. When Jesus’ words are the backbone of your life, you can’t fail. You have the best foundation ever. Let His words abide in you and you will walk on solid ground all the time. Trust Him. Believe in Him. He won’t let you down. May God bless you and protect you and remember that He will never leave you!
