Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? (Ezekiel 33:11)

Where's Your Foundation

Posted on February 20, 2014 at 7:00 AM

       In the parable of the foolish builders,Jesus began to show us an example of one who's foundation,meaning, your belief and trust,your action being demonstrated in calling Him Lord, an example of a solid and good foundation to stand on.                                    Some years ago when i was locked up,i began to experience God in a way i've heard preached,it was fresh and new and i often would think about it,looking at examples he showed me and seeing growth in my life praise God. There was a man,elderly and facing some time. He'll go to church services and we'd talk at different times,but one day his court date was up,so we had prayer that night. The next evening when he got back he was and i do mean visibly shaken and mad. I asked him how did it go and as he shook his head he said,(life)the time he got was basically a life sentence, him being already old. He said he'll never see his grand kids etc.. So me you know,i said hey,don't give up,God is still God and he can turn things for you,........his reply was (i don't wanna hear that)and he waved off his hands to say leave me alone.I went to my cell and felt so sorry for him and being to pray. I asked God to give him peace and restore joy to him and to strenghten him as he prepares to head out to serve his time. This scripture came to mind so i went to the bible and read it,luke 6:46.....................there has been many time i've seen people getting locked up,then go to the  services offered,you know what it is?(they get saved) now don't get me wrong i did the same thing,cause i began to realize that the backround i had and the call on me,the world would not answer,it answers to it's own. What i saw then was,and there's nothing wrong with one coming to Jesus in jail if that's what it takes,but many of them had no foundation to stand on,it was head and emotion knowledge than in the heart. I'm i saying that they all was like that,by no means,but when going thru some sort of trial and it doesn't go your way, and you began to say ah forget this bible stuff and even in your heart,curse at God for not coming thru,then it could be a variety of things why it didn't work out,but one thing i'd like to say is,no matter what we go thru,where is the foundation?. Who is the one holding or shall i say,who are you holding to,trusting and having the belief and demonstrating that belief by acting on what He says too.Jesus said why call me Lord and do not the things i say.  Well you might be saying that doesn't apply to that man situation,that's totally different,noooo on the contrary it is and does apply,just because  a person who starts reading the bible and acting different, doesn't mean you've made Jesus Lord,and it also shows that reading and going to church doesn't necessarily mean your foundation is firm. When you build a house,you have every intention on living in it,so likewise when it come to the word,you're reading,understand,applying and growing,you've moved into a House that's so strong that when winds blow it's still there because it's built on a rock. Let this be your time to re-evaluate and know your house is built on the solid foundation of Jesus the Christ...Blessing in Him....amen                  ref. luke 6:46-48 John15:19
