19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
So many people today are shook up. Devastatingly so, in many cases. Life hasn’t gone the way they wanted it to. Now, read what I said again: Life hasn’t gone the way THEY wanted it to. It’s sometimes a difficult thing to come to understand the plans of God for our lives. Yes, Scripture makes it clear that God has a plan for our lives (Jeremiah 1:5 & 29:11, Romans 8:28, Proverbs 16:9, among many, many others), but we are raised up, especially in America, with the ideal of setting out to make life the best for ourselves. Many set out to do things their way with no true regard for God. I further that statement by saying that it isn’t only happening amongst unbelievers. Many in churches today are not patterning their lives in such a way to seek out God’s plan for them. In fact, sin and disobedience are so rampant that finding the plan by “accident” isn’t going to happen.
We must get intentional about what is truly important. Jesus died so that we could live for Him. His plans need to be our plans, and we should wake up everyday seeking His direction, instead of conveniently trying to shoehorn His plans into our own. As cornerstone to all we are building, He comes first…always. There is a better way than what is offered to us by the world and even our own selves. We must make Jesus the source of our stability. What’s your foundation today?
