The strength of any building is seen by its foundation. Any builder will tell you that they can tell whether a house will last by looking at the foundation of that house. They actually can even tell the nature of house it will be just by looking at the foundation for the foundation of a simple single room apartment is not the same as one for a bungalow and is very different from a two storied flat.
This is also true for us as children of God, we ought to have the right foundation for the power of God to work. As a builder can’t put three storied flat on the foundation of a simple bungalow, in the same regard also you can’t build your life, family, finances, ministry on the weak and unstable things of this life lest they will all stumble and fall before you because of the wrong foundation.
The right foundation which is Christ and His Word anchors you in all the trouble that life brings and sets you up on top of the park, immovable and grounded in Him.
SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 6:48-49 KJV He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock. But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, teach me to build on you as my solid foundation. May I remain strong and immovable in this life in Jesus name. Amen.
