JESUS as the FOUNDATION of Our Life, Home, and Work

 

2 The Lord is my rock, 
and my fortress, 
and my deliverer; 
my God, 
my strength, 
in whom I will trust; 
my buckler, 
and the horn of my salvation,
 and my high tower.

Psalm 18:2 
King James Version

Fifteen months ago, I surrendered my whole life and work to the MASTER Builder -- JESUS.

Material things of the world, and its constant bickerings, don't concern me anymore, for only God has control over how anything would turn out.

I prefer building my "house" (my soul, my whole life, my whole work), upon the STRONGEST foundation of all -- JESUS.

He is the Builder, the Rock, and the Foundation.

JESUS is ALL.

These verses testify to the infinite strength, glory, and wisdom of the LORD, upon whom we must all build our lives, homes, and work.

Find permanent STRENGTH in these powerful verses:

5 My soul, 

wait thou only upon God; 

for my expectation is from him.

6 He only is my rock 

and my salvation: 

he is my defence; 

I shall not be moved.

7 In God is my salvation  and my glory: 

the rock of my strength, 

and my refuge, 

is in God.

8 Trust in him at all times; 

ye people, 

pour out your heart before him: 

God is a refuge for us. 

Selah.

Psalm 62:5-8

22 In whom ye also are builded together 

for an habitation of God 

through the Spirit.

King James Version


24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, 

and doeth them, 

I will liken him unto a wise man, 

which built his house upon a rock:

and the floods came, 

and the winds blew, 

and beat upon that house; 

and it fell not: 

for it was founded upon a rock.

and it is marvellous 

in our eyes?

on him 

shall not be confounded.
