Day 170 Laying foundations takes the longest time...

1 Kings 6:37& 38 "The foundation of the temple of the LORD was laid in the fourth year, in the month of Ziv. In the eleventh year in the month of Bul, the eighth month, the temple was finished in all its details according to its specifications. He had spent seven years building it."

As we are the temple of the Holy Spirit, what do we consider foundations to our faith in Christ?
Isaiah 28:16

So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.
Isaiah 33:6 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.

Solomon did have gold, silver, precious stones but we have the cornerstone - Jesus to build our lives around. It's how we align ourselves to the "key to this treasure" that makes all the difference.

Luke 6:49
"But the one who hears my words and does not put them into practice is like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struck that house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete."

So what word do I bring into this day for me..In all decisions and assessments I make today of circumstances and people, will I let the peace of God act as umpire over my soul?

Colossians 3:15 amplified bible
And let the peace (soul harmony which comes) from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which as [members of Christ's] one body you were also called [to live]. And be thankful (appreciative), [giving praise to God always].

May my Amen be visible today.
