Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 28:16 which says, “So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.”
This is a clear picture of Jesus! Because Jesus is “the precious cornerstone”, He is the “stone in Zion” and He is the “tested stone”, ”
Jesus said to them,
“Have you never read in the Scriptures:“‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; this was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? (ESV Mathew 21:42)
Well that is what Jesus said, and He was the capstone, He was “the stone the builders rejected”, even His own people rejected Him, but why? He died so that we could go free! He died so that we wouldn’t have all of God’s wrath on us, at the cross Jesus took the sins of the whole world, and not only that, but He had all of God’s wrath on Him, so that we wouldn’t have to, thank you so much Jesus.
In the later part of that verse (Isaiah 28:16) it says that the one who trusts in the stone (Jesus) will never be dismayed, and in Christ we will not be dismayed, even if at times it may seem like everything is going wrong, and even if it seems like God’s plan for us is not right, God always knows whats best for us, like David, He wanted to build the temple, but God told Him that his son would do it, even though David really wanted to build the temple, but even if we get disappointed, we will never be dismayed in Christ.
Do you trust in the cornerstone, or are you rejecting Him? (Him meaning Jesus)
