The Power of Foundation
Isaiah 46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me V.10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
The Holy Spirit has developed and established a treasure within my character that I find to be the basis of all that exists around me. The treasure is the power of wisdom within a defined foundation. I have experienced intense devastation when this has been denigrated by doubt and unbelief by adversaries.
I hold dearly in my spiritual, yet practical processes of life, that a person cannot achieve a strong and enduring character or anything with value without a prepared and established foundation where God can rest His blessing upon.
We notice in Isaiah 46:9 that God has framed the world from the end result to the beginning plan. God determined the end and then framed the beginning. God has set and declared His final work and then He filled in the space with His plan.
Almighty God has a plan in place that is completely reverse from human understanding. It is planning from the end. Oh, how marvelous are thy ways oh God!
This truth applies in all phases of life. Only after we conclude the final objective, can we begin the framework and strength of the foundation.
The size and strength of the foundation in a building is always relative to the weight and size and purpose of the structure.
Many Christians operate as it were auto pilot on an airplane. Whatever happens in life is all like the law of gravity.
Nothing goes right. Sloppily we trample through life never understanding the excellent principles that bring us to places of rest, strength, courage and spiritual resilience.
Seldom is splendor found in a foundation. Seldom are we in awe of a foundation.
It is toward the structure where all the value and admiration are directed. I have never found anyone to live inside a foundation nor have ever found a structure without a foundation.
Luke 14:28 For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?
What is so powerful about a true foundation? It is a place of structural rest. It is a place where plans have a place to prosper. It is a place where tests and trials surrender. Within it's perimeter, battles stay contained.
It is a place that is not on someone else's territory. Upon this established place others do not trespass. It is a place of containment. It is a place of authority that gives you confidence. The marvelous power of this foundation is, it has been established by a Builder greater than I.
Jesus is this foundation and all the promises within this foundation are mine to see fulfilled.
2 Corinthians 1:20 For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. V.21 Now He which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;
This anointing is the common union between Him and us for His purpose and His glory. It is to be noticed by those who walk under the constraints of the enemy, and including the enemy himself.
We now clearly understand that we have been placed upon a purchased foundation, solid as eternity.
The provision has been complete and final in Jesus. Almighty God's plan is to fulfill and prevail by faith and strength with the overcoming power we have been placed upon.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
Our foundation is the most powerful and enduring act that man ever needs to glorify the heavenly Father. The exceedingly firm foundation we have is the very one that God has set in place when He declared the end from the beginning.
We are in Him and completely in His plan, my Christian friend. You are anchored in a place of victory and miraculous overcoming power and you need no further provision. Only faith to fight. Remember faith fights and it fights the most powerful fight known to man.
Fight the good fight. You will always win when your fight is good!
