"Firm Foundation" - 12/20/13 Hebrews 11:1-12:39

"The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see." (11:1-2)

Perhaps, just thinking, the key to Faith and Trust, is actually how we look at the trials and tribulations we are going to go through.  What if, we were to look at them in excitement - knowing ABBA has everything under control.  Knowing when we get through the experience, He has something even better waiting for us.  What if, we were to be thankful in and for all things.  What if, we were to not take our focus off of Him?   What if, we were to carry His Word within our hearts.   Stand firm in it and live by it?  What if, He were our "firm foundation"?

Perhaps, we would believe how firm our foundation is.  We would sink our feet in, grip our toes down into the promises He has given us.  We would stand, bend, kneel, as He directs, no matter the elements that come our way.  But, we wouldn't break.  We would follow our Leader's directions. 

Without hesitation.  Without doubt.  Without fear. 

We would know He is "our handle on what we can’t see."

Just thinking, we need Him to be our "firm foundation".
