Firm foundations survive storms.
There seems to be no shortage of storms in the world right now. Glance at the headlines, and you will soon discover storms coming at us from all directions. COVID19, personal safety being at risk, and the like are causing storms. While it may be a particularly stormy time, storms are nothing new to life.
Proverbs suggests we build our lives on a firm foundation to survive these storms. Solomon writes in 10:25, “When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away, but the Godly have a lasting foundation.”
How do we build this foundation?
- Develop a relationship with the Lord by spending time in the Bible.
- Seek wisdom through prayer.
- Search the Scriptures for answers to life’s questions.
- Always strive to do what is right.
Building on this foundation is not easy, but it is worth the effort involved. Jesus tells a parable of two builders. The first builder did not take the time to dig through the sand to place his home on a rock foundation, while the second builder dug through the sand to rest his home on a rock foundation. A storm came, and flood waters rose. The first house was swept away, but the second house stood, unmoved by the tumultuous waters.
As we are weathering a stormy time, how firm is your foundation? Do you need to allow the Lord to add stability?
