Your Word is My Foundation

God, listen to me shout, bend an ear to my prayer. When I’m far from anywhere, down to my last gasp, I call out, “Guide me up High Rock Mountain!” You’ve always given me breathing room, a place to get away from it all, A lifetime pass to Your safe house, and an open invitation as Your Guest. You’ve always taken me seriously, God, and made me welcome among those who know and love You. [Psalm 61:1-5, the Message] 

Holy Spirit You inspired Isaiah to write, “All flesh is grass, and all its loveliness is as the flower of the field. The grass withers and the flower fades because the Spirit of the Lord blows upon it; surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of God shall stand forever.” [Isaiah 40:6-8, MEV] I know that I can not only stand on the foundation of what is written in Your word and begin my faith. I have come to dearly cherish Your word and to seek wisdom daily from it.  

Holy Spirit Your word says: And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of His glory. Let it be so, Amen. Amen. [Ephesians 1:13&14]
