Foundation is defined as the basis or groundwork of anything, the natural or prepared ground or base on which some structure rests. the lowest division of a building, wall, or the like, usually of masonry and partly or wholly below the surface of the ground.
A foundation supports something. The foundation of a building determines whether it will stand when floods, wind, rain, or earthquakes come. If the building is built on a solid foundation it will stand.
Luke 6:46-49 tells us that Jesus and His words are the foundation for all believers.
“And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without a foundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beat vehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.”
Jesus is the rock. He is the believer’s foundation. He is the only way of salvation. His words are the only words that are trustworthy, life changing, and will never fail us. Complete obedience to His word puts us in the center of God’s will for our lives.
That is a solid foundation!
