As I was travelling to Hayward, Wisconsin yesterday I came across this building made of stone, by looking at it you can tell that when it was built it was built on a strong foundation. I remember as a kid and the house where I grew up in had a stone foundation, the walls in the basement were built with stone, I don’t know how old that house was but it definitely has a strong foundation because it is still standing and my parents bought that house back in 1956 and the previous owners had lived there for quite some time, it didn’t have running water into the house when we moved there, so that tells you it had to have been built a good number of years previously.
Have you ever been walking through the woods and came upon a foundation? When we were kids we would go across the road we lived on and there were a few different foundations there, the town had at one time been there and as years went by others built south of town and those buildings were not used any longer, but the foundations were still there, someone had built a strong foundation, strong enough that us kids would practice our balancing by walking around on the top of the foundation, it never crumbled under us.
Isaiah 28:16 – Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner [stone], a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
The Lord God is our sure foundation, our strong foundation, when we lay our life’s in his hands we are sure to stay firm and if we trust him he will carry us through. Isaiah 28:6 also says a precious corner (stone), if the corner stone isn’t laid up properly then the whole foundation can be out of whack and eventually not strong enough to hold the building up, like us if our corner stone isn’t strong then our foundation will be weak and when a storm comes our foundation will collapse. The Lord God is one that can be trusted and will give us the strength we need to go through any storm in life we may face. Have you made the Lord God your corner stone, your strong foundation?
