By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 3:10,11 NIV)
Forward Friday! Moving from- momma said there would be days like this to joy unspeakable and full of glory. We have days like momma said- it’s called life. How we function in life depends on foundation we build. When storms of life threaten, how well to do we stand?
Satan’s lie easiest to trick makes one think the Bible is hard to understand. In church all my young life, I did not become serious about reading my Bible until after college. I became determined, can remember vividly. I asked God to help me understand scripture, He was faithful. I was amazed most of our childhood Bible stories came from Genesis. Connection made to strengthen foundation in Jesus Christ.
Foundation in Jesus Christ, is the stability to withstand life situations. I never would have thought my mother would die of ALS when I was 17. Foundation at that time was shaken. As we become a christian, frame work is formed. As we grow in maturity, cement thickens. God’s consistent in our lives. He is always the same- yesterday, today, and forever. Satan in limited power attempts to kill, steal, and destroy. Satan succeeds when foundations are not set.
Experiences prove God is faithful. Many of you agree with God’s faithfulness. For those having trouble with these thoughts, I ask you to trust. Open your Bible and ask Jesus to help you understand. Begin with Genesis 1. You’ll be amazed! More Biblical knowledge gained and applied, stronger cement solidifies.
Forward Friday! Let’s move forward evaluating our foundations. To help others who struggle with building a foundation in Jesus Christ. God is faithful. All of us working together- brings unity to God’s kingdom and produces joy unspeakable, full of glory!
