Scripture –

Isaiah 28:16 – therefore thus says the Lord God, “Behold, I am the one who has laid a foundation in Zion, a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone, of a sure foundation:  Whoever believes will not be in haste.


Observation –

This is the word of the Lord and in the preceding verse 15, God says the people have made lies their refuge and taken shelter in falsehood.  God has laid the foundation in Zion in a tested and precious cornerstone on which we can rely.  The precious cornerstone which is the only true and solid foundation is Jesus Christ.  Those who believe in Jesus as their Lord and savior can cast their burdens on Him for rest.


In this time, we may be tempted and hear many voices other than that of Jesus which do not represent the truth.  We cannot rely on earthly insight as Jesus is the way, the truth and the light and the word will stand forever unchanged.  I have to trust in Jesus and build my house on His solid foundation to weather the storms that are here and those forthcoming.

Prayer –


Thank you for your grace in saving me.  Let me live a life of faith by loving you and others.  May the power of the Spirit guide me in prayer, action and speech to edify all and honor you.
