FOUNDATIONS

   


  Ps 11:1-5
In the Lord I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain. 2 For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart. 3 When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do a?"
4 The Lord is in his holy temple; the Lord is on his heavenly throne. He observes the sons of men; his eyes examine them. 5 The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked b and those who love violence his soul hates.
NIV
Lot was a righteous man but He lived in a land where the foundations were being eroded gradually. A time came, when the foundations of that city could not altogether stand again, the city had to be destroyed for the good of humankind. I am talking about Sodom and Gomorrah. Just imagine what the world would have been like had that brand of corruption that was perceived in Sodom and Gomorrah been allowed to remain and blossom from those early days.
The principles upon which your life is founded can also be known as the foundation of your life. The foundation of your life as a child of God is the truth that God’s word presents concerning you. These are the principles upon which and around which you build your life. Jesus said anyone that comes to Him, hears his word and obeys shall be like a man who laid his foundation on a rock, but anyone who does not do so shall be like a man that laid his foundation on sand. The principles of the kingdom of God should be the anchor and guiding principle of your life. let God’s word be the standard for your life.
Prayer: dear heavenly father. I thank you for your word today. I worship you for being the greatest and the highest. Lord I ask that you help me that my faith in your word will never fail; that you keep me in your peace. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
