If you follow me on social media, then yesterday, you would see, that we had the privilege to watch the foundation being poured for our God-given home
Someone asked me why I would want to see that happen, as it’s only “boring concrete”? I replied that this was a more significant moment – for us as a family – than the walls or roof going on…
You see, the foundation (to us) is a prophetic declaration of the way forward.
If you don’t get the foundation right, everything else is affected.
The foundation is what sets the “stage” for what is to come.
Friends, I can think of Scripture after Scripture of ways God talks about the foundation or the Word of God needing to be on solid ground because once laid, it is the president of the building ahead…
Walls can be torn down, broken, and disregarded, but the foundation is what we don’t usually see unless it’s stripped right back.
A mansion cannot withstand a foundation of sand, or a high-rise needs a certain depth of foundation to remain secure.
We need to think of ourselves as a house of God. Therefore, the foundation must be from the Word of God, and the cornerstone should only be, Jesus Christ, because then, no matter what life throws at us, we remain firmly planted, safe, and in the knowledge that as for me, and my family, we will serve the Lord!
Yesterday, wasn’t just concrete being poured to us, because at that time, we laid a Bible in the foundation – right at the entrance way of our home…why?
Because everyone that steps into our home, will be standing (literally) on the Word of God, and we are believing for everything God says, for not only our lives, but also, for those who are friends and family.
We are a walking testimony of God’s goodness and grace. Twelve months ago, our dreams of a home had died…yesterday the foundation was laid…and tomorrow God’s house will start to rise
