Topic: You are Standing Upon a Sure Foundation [TREM 8 September 2018 Daily Devotional]
“Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.” Isaiah 28:16 (KJV)
Not too long ago, one of my sons was leading in devotion, and he said, “When there is a shaking or an earthquake, things get re-arranged. What is here will move to another side and vice versa.” Therefore, what God is doing in the present situation around the world, is that, things are being re-arranged and you are being re-positioned. People who have never been millionaires will now have opportunities to be millionaires. It’s a re-arrangement.
In Isaiah 28:16, the Bible says “Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious cornerstone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.” Just like earthquakes shake foundations; so also the things that have been rooted over the years that have been difficult to uproot in your life will be uprooted. You are entering a season of new things. I am excited because without any fear of contradiction, I know that you will testify.
Hebrews 4:1, it says “Let us therefore fear, lest a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.” God is telling you what to fear. In other words, don’t fear the devil or what he’s doing because the devil has been dealt with. He said the fear you should have is the fear of not entering the rest that God has prepared for you. Verse 9-11 of Hebrews chapter 4 says, “There remaineth therefore a rest for the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also has ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Let us labor therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.”
You must learn to enter your REST by believing in what Jesus did for you.
