Who would ever think of doing that, you might ask. Well, let me explain the analogy.
First of all, whenever you build something, you need a foundation – the starting point upon which you’ll build your project or idea. And as you know, if the foundation is shaky, everything else is at risk of imploding.
We can easily see this in the natural, physical realm but what about the spiritual realm, which is actually a higher realm than the natural realm? This is where most people miss it.
People say they believe certain things but what is it based on? What is the foundation – the benchmark – the starting point? If the basic premise of what you believe is faulty, then your whole belief system is skewed and in danger of imploding.
We must ask ourselves why we believe what we say we believe. If it’s not based on God’s Word, as the final authority – the benchmark from which everything is measured, then it’s faulty and the devil and all his unbelief, lying wonders, and pretended miracles can get in there and wreak havoc.
We do have a Sure Foundation upon which to build – Jesus Christ, the Chief Cornerstone! Jesus is the Word and we’re to build upon the Word because it’s the ONLY sure foundation that won’t crumble and fall but will see us through now and throughout all eternity!
The bottom line is this: We have to make a sincere and deliberate commitment that God’s Word is The Truth – no matter what anyone else thinks and not even what we think! Since when did humans ever become smarter than God? Really!
So, get into God’s Word, commit to believing it with all your heart, and watch it come alive right before your eyes!
2 Timothy 2:19a (KJV) 19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his.
2 Timothy 2:19a (AMP) 19 But the firm foundation of (laid by) God stands, sure and unshaken, bearing this seal (inscription): The Lord knows those who are His.
Ephesians 2:20 (KJV) 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Hebrews 4:12 (KJV) 12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Hebrews 4:12 (AMP) 12 For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.
John 1:1, 14 (KJV) 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
