When Richard constructs a building, I always show up to watch the foundation pour, it’s not the first step, but something is interesting to me about the process. There are many steps prior to the foundation pour, like the footers, which have steel rods and blocks. Then it’s sprayed to kill all the bugs, then more steel is laid down, and heavy wire mesh to prepare the ground for the concrete. I’m sure there’s more, but that’s all I see. Richard makes sure I know the day that the trucks are coming because he knows how much I love to watch. God gave me a passion for seeing this portion of the development of a building for a reason, probably because it’s biblical.
Imagine being around when God prepared the foundation of the earth. When God mentions it in the Bible, I think about it like the slab of a building. Imagine the anchors and the steel that it must have taken to pull all of that together!
My imagination runs wild when I hear that the earth is God’s footstool. I think about what educators have taught and imagine a floating, round stool with God’s feet contouring to its roundness. It doesn’t make sense, but that’s okay; one day soon, we will have all of our questions answered, but until that day, I will rely upon the truth of what God has revealed in his Word and try to piece it together with the science taught.
And, “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands; Hebrews 1:10
Thus says the LORD: “Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool; what is the house that you would build for me, and what is the place of my rest? Isaiah 66:1
