Isaiah 28:16 – A Sure Foundation

Isaiah 28:16
16
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

A foundation, by definition, is the lowest load-bearing part of a building, typically below ground level.  The Lord became the foundation of all our righteousness and worth; but in order to do that, he had to go down.  Way down.  The Bible tells us that before Jesus ascended back into Heaven, “he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth.” (Ephesians 4:9)  Jesus went lower than any of us could have gone so that He could bear the load of sin that none of us could have borne.  He promises that whosoever trusts in Him will be able to survive the storms of life because our foundation is a rock.  (Matthew 7:24-25)  Things can never get so low that Jesus Christ can’t support us; for even when the bottom drops out, “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms” (Deuteronomy 33:27)
