You, Lord, Laid the Foundation

Hebrews 1:10-12 And, “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands; 11 they will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment, 12 like a robe you will roll them up, like a garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end.”

2014-01-05 - You, Lord, Laid the Foundation (IMG_1762_AC)An unusual view of the waterfall on Flat Fork CreekCaesar Creek State Park, Waynesville, Ohio.

This photograph was possible only because of a solid foundation afforded by the thick ice resulting from the recent sub-zero temperatures here in southwest Ohio.  Of course the weather will eventually warm up, the ice will melt, and this foundation will be lost, though not anytime soon according to the forecasts.

If we put our faith in the permanence of the things of this world, like the ice in this photo they will eventually disappear, and we will be disappointed.  However, if we put our faith in the Lord who “laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning,” in “Jesus Christ [who] is the same yesterday and today and forever,” (Hebrews 13:8) we will never be disappointed and will always have a solid foundation to stand on.
