Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel according to the revelation of the mystery according to the commandment for obedience to the faith. (Romans 16:25-26)
The natural inclination of man is to seek security. Before we can be secure, we have to be first of all established. For one to be established they must have a foundation, something immovable on which to stand. Without a firm foundation, security is sought in vain. There is only one true foundation, Jesus Christ and His Word. As the old hymn says, “All other ground is sinking sand.” Whether you are building a relationship, a family, a business or a church, you must build on the foundation according to the gospel of Christ. God will establish you according to His gospel, the revelation of the Word and through your obedience to the faith. There are no shortcuts. There is no other foundation. Therefore, if you find yourself insecure, check out your foundation. If it is cracked, it is not built on Christ. If you are established on Christ then build accordingly.
