When the earth quakes and its people live in turmoil, I am the one who keeps its foundations firm. Psalm 75:3 NLT
Earthquakes, floods, wildfires.
Tyranny, oppression, anarchy.
Scandal, excess, fraud.
Loss, despair, sorrow.
If ever we needed a firm foundation it is now.
However, we often confuse what exactly the foundation is.
It is not in government or finances.
It is not science or medicine or philosophy.
It is not is possessions or accomplishment.
It is not even in wisdom or planning.
The foundation is God Himself.
It is God’s character. His lavish grace. His inexhaustible mercy. His boundless love.
It is His unfailing promises. It is His unmistakable presence. It is his strong right hand.
God keeps the foundations firm.
God keeps MY foundation firm.
God keeps YOUR foundation firm, as well.
Praise His name.
