The Corona virus has shaken the world in a way nothing else has done in modern history. The economic and financial turmoil associated with the virus, crisis in the health sector and the lockdown witnessed across the globe are unprecedented. Everything else that man has relied on was shaken and it’s interesting to see how the many things we put our hope and security on failed to provide security amidst the crisis. This reminds me the importance of building the success of our lives on rock solid foundations for anything else can crumble. Jesus in the scriptures admonished his followers to build their lives on solid foundations that will not cause them pain and loss. We are living at a time when everything can be shaken. Major economies and great countries have been shaken, financial and stock markets have been shaken, businesses and job security have been shaken and nothing appears promising in the world today. God is the only foundation that can provide hope amidst the challenges and difficulties that we are facing today. He is a Rock that has withstood the test of time and none of those that ever trusted him were put to shame. He is the sure foundation that is known to hold despite the storms that comes our way. He gives us hope that goes beyond the challenges of the circumstances. What are you holding unto in this uncertain times? Where do you feel let down by something that you trusted and ended up letting you down? Where are you feeling crushed because you trusted someone who disappointed you? Anything can change and let us down. Only God provides the solid base over which we can build our lives. He is surely the sure foundation of our times!
“He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure.” Isaiah 33:6 NIV
