This is what the LORD says to you: ‘Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God's.’
- When we are facing challenges and insecurity, we can get discouraged. - Discouragement robs us of our joy and of our peace. - Today, the Lord wants to say to you: ‘Do not be discouraged!’ - The Lord will fight for you, because He loves and cares for you.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for the strength, joy and peace You bring into my life. I will not allow a spirit of discouragement to torment me, because You have told me not to fear or be discouraged. Amen.
Daily Bible Verse: Luke 2:14

A Sure Foundation That Will Not Be Moved
November 18, 2019
A SURE FOUNDATION FOR YOUR TIMES
Life is a series of seasons and times through which we pass. Each season has its own challenges and difficulties. Trouble is a part of life. It is not a matter of if we have trouble but rather a matter of when we have trouble. If the foundation is sure, we will be able to stand. Perhaps you are facing a difficult season or time right now. If you are, then hold onto the sure foundation, God will see you through and bring you out on the other side.
Isaiah 33:6 He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure.
This scripture indicates that this sure foundation is a treasure in our lives. There is a key to experiencing this treasure and it is the fear of the Lord in our lives!
A SURE FOUNDATION THAT WILL NOT BE MOVED
The foundation that God is offering us is a foundation that will not be moved. It is a tried and tested foundation upon which the saints have relied and trusted and it did not fail them. Think of Joseph, David and Abraham. Just as the foundation has carried others, it can carry you as well. If we will build, rely and trust in this foundation then we will not be ashamed, nor will we give way under the pressures of life, nor will we be destroyed when troubles come.
Isaiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the Lord God, Behold, I am laying in Zion for a foundation a Stone, a tested Stone, a precious Cornerstone of sure foundation; he who believes (trusts in, relies on, and adheres to that Stone) will not be ashamed or give way or hasten away [in sudden panic].
Let’s build on the SURE FOUNDATION!
