The real beginning of anything that will last must be in God’s word. Anything that will last whether business, ministry or anything at all must be rooted in God’s words. Many people start things based on their own ideas. They lunch business, ministries on their own ideas and such things end up not lasting. But when God’s word is its true foundation, it will last. The beginning of the whole universe – heaven and earth – was in God’s word and that is the reason it still exists.
Anything not founded on the foundation of God’s word will be swept away by the devil and the flood, tide of life. It will be like the wise man who built his house upon the rock and when the wind, storm and flood came, the house survived. God’s word is the rock that can hold your life, ministry, business, and career. Whatever you are doing on earth, God’s word is vital to it. Anyone who does not take God’s word before starting or begin anything is like the foolish man who built on the sand and the house he built collapsed under the wind and storm. Many people labour, work hard and strive but it is unfortunate that the foundation of all their labour is not God’s word. Such projects don’t have future.
If you are starting or beginning anything outside God’s word, you have not really began. Real and lasting beginnings stand on God’s word.
What are the things God wants you to start this year? Find His word and promises that you will build it on. Whatever is joined to the promises of God cannot fail because God cannot fail.
Prayer: Oh Lord, let your word come to me for the projects and things I must start on the earth in Jesus’ name. Amen.
