Isaiah 28:9–16

A Sure Foundaton

From single-dwelling homes to skyscrapers, the foundation is a key part of every structure. In order for a foundation to give the right support, its design and composition must be congruent with the type of bedrock on which it rests and environmental forces the building might be subjected to, such as earthquakes or hurricanes.

More important than a building’s foundation is that of our faith. Just as surely as buildings will encounter the forces of nature, so will our faith be assaulted by Satan. But our loving Heavenly Father has provided us with a foundation that will withstand all the fiery darts of the enemy of our soul.

See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation, the one who trusts will never be dismayed (Isaiah 28:16).

This sure foundation is not made of concrete. Our foundation is Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:4). When one places his trust in Jesus as Savior, Shepherd, Counselor, Healer, and King of kings and Lord of lords, he rests upon a sure foundation that shall not be moved.
