Topic: Get Your Foundation Right
Scripture: Through skillful and godly Wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation]. — Proverbs 24:3 (AMPC)
Message: The definition of foundation is “the basis or groundwork; that on which anything stands, and by which it is supported”.
Countless people have asked me through the years, “What has been the most difficult aspect or experience of your ministry?” I always respond, “Not giving up when we were laying the foundation.”
Though we have faced our share of situations that tempted us to want to give up, nothing has been as challenging as staying diligent during those early years. We wanted a fruitful ministry, but we knew we needed a strong foundation before we could build one.
Whatever you believe God wants to do in your life, be patient as He brings it to pass. Don’t long for too much too fast, but be thankful every day that God is establishing a foundation that will support the growth, expansion and new opportunities He will bring into your life at just the right time.
