The Foundation

Matthew 7:24… ESV
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man
who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds
blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

Each day I awake with an expectation of a proceeding word. Not just for me,
but for all those that the Lord has placed in my life. This requires a personal
relationship with the Lord that has been established on a firm foundation and
is in agreement with the written word. As we stand on this “Rock” (who we are in Him)
we are lifted into a higher level of relationship and come to trust in His faithfulness
alone for our daily provision. It is a pressing into the Kingdom each day that takes us
beyond our past insecurities (our house built upon the sand), and causes us to enter in
to the security of being seated with Jesus in His Throne, at the right hand of all power
and authority (our house built upon a rock). Here, as we rest in the victory that Jesus gained
for us upon the cross, our Heavenly Father, who brought Jesus forth into resurrection life
from a grave that appeared to be a total defeat, will also lift us and all those He has placed in our
lives from a place of discouragement and mixture into the overcoming victory in His presence.
