When it all falls down, what’s underneath? When it seems your world is crumbling before you, what can you stand on? Growing up I didn’t actually realize how privileged I really was. I’m blessed to have grown up with Pastors as parents. The foundation that they build our family on has been shaken but never broken. Due, to the morals, values and principles they invested into my life as a child I have a sturdy foundation.
This foundation has literally separated me from so many. The cloth that I was cut from is completely different from what my peers are custom to. Certain situations I have the ability to bounce back because my foundation is strong. What is this foundation that I speak of? God. No, matter what I’ve been through God has been my foundation consciously and sub consciously. He has saved me from many treacherous waters. Needless to say, I have scars and I’ve bended in many situations but he has never allowed me to break. Isaiah 33:6 says,
“He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure.”
A great foundation with God guarantees stability during your trials and tribulations. No, things won’t always be easy and you may even get shaken but that foundation will always sustain you.
A stable foundation is built on faith and faith alone. God doesn’t promise that you won’t suffer with him but he does promise you won’t be alone. If you’re dealing with a broken heart……he’s near. If you’re dealing with a loss…….he hasn’t forsaken you. The core of your life should be placed on solid ground. Majority of the time if our foundation is faulty God tends to over and over again give you a chance to rebuild with him in mind. Does a contractor build with hay and straw? So, why build your foundation with broken promises, lies, rejection and pain? Always, these things will fail you. It’s impossible to get through this life without a foundation that can withstand any high waters and mind blowing winds. Psalm 71:3 reads,
“Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.”
When your foundation is based on God, your strength is always renewed. When it all falls down let one thing remain consistent, let your faith be the pillar to pull you through.
