It is simply:
1. Because of God’s foundation in our life, we will be more conscious of Him in our walk
We will all be facing crises of life from time to time, however discouraging or hopeless, we as children of God must remember that the foundation of our hope is God. And that foundation will never be destroyed if our foundation of God is secure, whereby any events of life do not change that. With this foundation in place, we will walk right.
“Nevertheless, the firm foundation of God stands, having this seal, ‘The Lord knows those who are His,’ and, ‘Let everyone who names the name of the Lord abstain from wickedness.'” – 2 Timothy 2:19
2. Because without Him, we do not have life
Everything was made through Him. Life is only found in Him. And with Him, we have the light of life. With this light, we can shine even in darkness. A candle flame may flicker or burns strong depending on the strength of the candle’s wick.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made thru him, and without him was not any thing made tt was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, & the darkness has nt overcome it. – John 1:1-51 ESV
3. Because through Him, you can do all things!
If our relationship with God is secure and strong, we can stand firm on the Word of God which are His Promises.
“For I can do everything thru Christ, who gives me strength.” – Philippians 4:13 NLT
4. Because without God as the Architect, our labour will b in vain
As God created us and planned our lives according to His special blueprint for us, He promises to usher us in His Highest Purposes for our Highest Good. Otherwise, we would labour in vain with much sweat and toil, our efforts would reduce to nothing.
If the Lord doesn’t build the house, the builders are working for nothing. If the Lord doesn’t guard the city, the guards are watching for nothing. – Psalms 127:1 NCV
(Cross reference to Matt 7:24-27 and Luke 6:47-49 about the wise man building his house on the rock.)
Reflection: It is good to be honest to evaluate the quality of your relationship with God- It may give you insights to challenging areas in your life. Do you realise the difference between walking in His Ways and standing on His Word, as opposed to walking in your ways and standing on your own wisdom?
