Building Your Foundation

You have probably played a game called “Jenga” sometime in your life. You build a tower with all the pieces of blocks that you are given. Each player must take a turn and pull out a piece of block from the tower. The goal is to not knock down any blocks from the tower as you pull a block out and place it at the top. Someone will eventually pull out a block and the entire tower will fall down. When the blocks are not equipped with the right foundation they will tumble. The weight of the pieces on top and missing sides will make the tower unstable. Eventually, the tower will come crashing down. What does your foundation look like? Is your foundation strong enough to endure hit after hit? Your foundation has to be set in Christ. What is the root of your foundation?

We can be easily swayed by the pressures of life if we are not rooted in the foundation of Jesus. It is easy to keep stacking the pieces on top of each other, even when the foundation is rocky. When the foundation is not steady, it will eventually collapse. Now you will find yourself starting to build again from scratch. You do not have to have an unsteady foundation. If you are not sure of who you are, then your core values will waver. There is power in knowing that your roots are set by the Holy Spirit. If we are constantly led in shaky ground, how can we effectively see what God is doing in our lives? Whatever you are praying for do it with unwavering faith. When you are surrounded by friends, be intentional about those relationships. Ground yourself in His word. Position yourself in His steps. The foundation is the source of everything; let it be embedded in God’s purpose. A house cannot stand without the proper foundation. Unsteadiness cannot coexist with stability. Build a strong foundation in Christ and watch God do the unthinkable and move the unmovable in your life.

Your foundation is the basis and lead for everything that you do in life. Your foundation has been set in God. Why are you still fearful? What is holding you back? There is peace in that foundation. You do not have to go back-and-forth with yourself. You do not have to live life with one foot in and the other out. You do not have to settle in the unsureness, insecurities and uncertainties of this life. You can be confident in your calling. You can be firm in decisions. You can be set in your dreams and goals. Learning to build your foundation in Christ is essential. Once you have a solid knowledge of God in your life, anything that you do will now be done in confidence on sturdy ground. Finding stability in your anxiety and worries will anchor you forward in your groundwork in God. How are you building your foundation?

“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.” -1 Corinthians 3:11

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” -Matthew 7:24

“He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built.” -Luke 6:48
