“When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away, but the godly have a lasting foundation.” Proverbs 10:25

Have you ever watched the massive, heavy trucks hauling tons of goods down the highway? I have sometimes wondered how something like asphault, which basically has the consistency of sand, can support so much weight.

The answer is in the preparation, in how the foundation is laid.

The pavers have to prepare the road bed properly, or the blacktop above will crumble. No matter how pretty and smooth it is, if what isn’t seen isn’t right, the highway will collapse upon itself when the pressure mounts.

Solomon, the wisest man who lived, knew the importance of putting our spirits in proper priority. He knew that we have to look ahead and build our lives on something solid – a Godly life.

Our foundation, our strength, comes when we prepare ourselves with the word of God. We aren’t promised that every day will be paradise here on earth, but we are promised that if we put our trust in Him that we will make it through.

Is it time to examine your foundation? The time is never better than right now to make sure you have everything in place to help you weather life’s storms.
