Luke 6:48-49 (KJV)
48 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.
49 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.
Not only do things immediately fall apart, but the damage is great. It is hard to recover when great damage hits our house. The good news is that it is not too late. You can go to God and repent for not given Him everything. Ask Him to be your rock and firm foundation in everything that you do. Then begin to build those areas according to the word of God. Trouble will surely still come, but when it does, you will not be shaken. God will protect you and keep you safe. He will save and deliver you.
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
You can trust that God will work all things out for your good because you have surrendered it all to Him.
Isaiah 28:16 (AMP)
16 Therefore thus says the Lord God, Behold, I am laying in Zion for a foundation a Stone, a tested Stone, a precious Cornerstone of sure foundation; he who believes (trusts in, relies on, and adheres to that Stone) will not be ashamed or give way or hasten away [in sudden panic].
Jesus is a sure foundation. Everything that is built on Him will last. You might still be thinking that it’s too late. You have already built an empire on a false foundation. I am here to tell you that once you repent, God gives you clean slate. A chance to make things right. He won’t hold your past against you and he will redeem the time. The fruit of your labor will be sweet and will be worthy for the generations to come.
Read 1 Corinthians 3
Father, we thank You for giving us a sure foundation. We are thankful that your mercy gives us a chance rebuild by your strength and wisdom. Help us search out Your word to gain understanding on how to build for the generations. Forgive us for putting You in a box and not trusting You with everything. Today we give it all to You. Come in and restructure our lives and place us on the rock that is our Lord Jesus Christ. We will not be put to shame because we trust in You. We give You all the glory. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
