The Cornerstone

October 3

Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 27 - 28

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 26:3 – “Therefore thus saith the Lord Jehovah, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner-stone of sure foundation: he that believeth shall not be in haste.”

We come again to a prophecy that is recorded in the Old Testament that the apostle Peter identifies in the New Testament. In 1 Peter 2:6, Peter records these words – “Because it is contained in scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: And he that believeth on him shall not be put to shame.” He unveils the hidden meaning that this stone is none other than Jesus. He is the stone for a sure foundation. This “cornerstone” if laid correctly will establish true straight walls. If we have this “Cornerstone” in our lives – they will be true and straight.

Prayer: Great builder of the Universe, establish a true and firm foundation in my life so that I can live a life pleasing to You. I seek Your direction in all I do today. Amen.
