Isaiah 27-28 B

“Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: ‘Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken.” 27:16

It’s easy to find hope in this verse among the other heart-breaking paragraphs in these chapters. But what does it look like to build your life on Christ?

1. We are safe with him, despite our circumstances.

2. We are perfectly known by God and do not need to prove our identities or find ourselves. We can be found in him.

3. There is immense freedom in submitting your life to God. Freedom in submission? Yes.

“On Christ the solid rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand.” These lyrics from an old hymn are worth building your life around. Money, careers, relationships, the economy and people come and go. But your relationship with God? It’s the only thing it can count on. It’s ever-lasting, eternal, deeply enriching and can never be shaken.

What have you built your life on?

    I really like where you went with these verses. I especially like where you say we don’t need to “find ourselves” because we can be found in Him. I need to keep remembering that.

    The end of chapter 28 stuck out to me, where he’s talking about how things are harvested. Then he says “all this also comes from the Lord Almighty, whose plan is wonderful, whose wisdom is magnificent.” Did God teach them how to farm?! I guess it makes sense, how else would they have known how to harvest and what to harvest? But it’s just a really cool thing to think about!
