He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure. Isaiah 33:6
People are always looking for a solid foundation for their lives. They want a secure job, a secure bank account, a secure retirement account, a secure house and much more. They want to know that what they are trusting in will work and not fail.
Many are seeking this foundation in the things and ways of this world. Everything that this world produces in and of itself will fail at some point. Nothing will last forever that is man-made. Empires have risen and fallen, economies have risen and fallen, along with everything else that man has made.
Isaiah is looking forward to a future time with Jesus. He is looking to a time when God will be the sure foundation, the solid foundation that provides salvation, wisdom and knowledge.
Following the ways and things of this world is an unsure foundation. There is no guarantees in this life with this world. Many are living in fear because they do not have a solid foundation in their life, everything is fluid.
The one who follows Jesus has a solid foundation. It is only in Jesus that one will find salvation from the trouble of this world. True wisdom and knowledge is found only in following God with all of one’s heart and life.
Jesus is the only one who can save a person. Putting one’s trust in God alone, will give him a solid foundation in this life and prepare him for the life to come.
The believer will be able to stand on a sure foundation while the rest of the world is in a panic and living in fear and being unsure. He has a hope that the world does not know or understand.
As you put your trust in God, you can know that you have a solid foundation under your feet. You can know that God has forgiven you of your sins. You can know that Jesus is going to return to bring you with Him. You can understand what is going on in this world.
Do not allow yourself to live in fear as the world does. As the world is crumbling around you, stand upon the promises of God, the sure foundation that will withstand the sands of time and eternity.
I pray today that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will know the salvation God provides; that you will have a solid foundation in Jesus; and that you will live for God with all of your life.
