The foundation is the base starting point to anything you are desiring to build.
This beginning piece will be an essential factor before you go on to the next levels of your project.
How do we make sure the foundation is built the way we need it to be, to withstand every storm?
It must be founded on the Rock. This Rock is Jesus.
Whatever your plan is, without including Jesus 1͎s͎t͎ , all else will ultimately fail.
To not have Him in mind first is foolish (Matthew 7:26), because without Him, you cannot do anything!
As Christians, we should learn from our past. I don’t know about you all, but before I had Jesus by my side, my mistakes dug me into a deep hole. One that I wasn’t able to get out of my own, in my own strength. If it wasn’t for my Savior, I would have continued into the depths of chaos and fears. Who knows where I would have ended up!
Thankfully, God met me in my mess. He grabbed my hand and insisted this was no longer a battle I had to fight on my own. Where no one else was to be found in my times of need, He revealed to me that He was. I just had to be willing to finally surrender and lean into His hope.
“And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”Colossians 1:17, ESV
He is the Vine, we are the branches (John 15:5).
To be successful in anything that we do, we must make sure God is first in our lives and we remain in Him.
We have been appointed by God, not to do the things of the kingdom on our own (John 15:16).
If we are not grounded and united with the Father we are more than likely going to fall at some point.
Save yourself the trouble and enter His rest.
Our talents, gifts, and light do not come from our own doing, but from the Maker Himself!
