Listen Learn Believe
When the Sovereign Lord says something do we listen? My mind immediately went to that old commercial 'When EF Hutton talks ... people listen.' I can hear the voice in my head. I am not suggesting that The Lord sounds like the guy from the commercial ... who really knows? What I do know is that we must take the Lord at His Word. When the Sovereign Lord says something we should listen. Sovereignty is defined as a supreme power with freedom from external control or one with unlimited power. Sovereignty is the most excellent, greatest, supreme leader and authority over anything and everything. That's our God. Our Father. Our Lord. Way better than some old commercial guy.
When the Sovereign Lord teaches us, we should learn. When the Sovereign Lord shows us, we should see. When the Sovereign Lord tells us something, we should listen and hear Him. Isaiah 28:16 NLT "Therefore, this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “Look! I am placing a foundation stone in Jerusalem, a firm and tested stone. It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever believes need never be shaken." The Sovereign Lord says that He has given us His precious Cornerstone. The Foundation stone that is safe to build upon. Safe, steadfast and tested. Tried and true. That's Jesus. Our Cornerstone that we can rely upon when our lives are shaky, because He is steady and true.
Whoever believes need never be shaken. Grab hold of that promise. Hold on with all you've got. No matter what happens, hold on to that promise, because The Sovereign Lord says that He has placed His precious Cornerstone - just for us. A Firm Foundation. Listen. Learn. Believe. Stand on that promise. Everyday. Every single day.
