Worship Song of the Month

Worship Song of the Month

September 7: How Firm a Foundation

In the original publication of How Firm a Foundation, these words from 2 Peter 1:4 are printed above the first verse:  “Exceeding and precious promises” (KJV).  Verse 1 encourages us to build a foundation of confidence in God’s promises, found in the Bible. 

The author then goes on, in each consecutive verse, to remind us of some of these promises. Verse 2 references Isaiah 41:10; verse 3 calls to mind Isaiah 43:2, Zechariah 13:9, 1 Peter 1:7, and 2 Corinthians 12:9. And verse 4 points us to the many Bible verses that promise that Jesus will never leave us or forsake us– verses like Deuteronomy 31:6, Psalm 9:9-10, Matthew 28:20, and Hebrews 13:5.  When you sing “How Firm a Foundation,” think about these and other Scriptures that speak of God’s constancy and help in times of trouble.

For reflection:  How well do you know Scripture, so that God’s promises come to your mind when you are discouraged?   Look up each of the verses above, and read the promises referenced in “How Firm a Foundation.”  Which of God’s promises encourage you today?

  1. A frequent prayer by Dad and me is that each member of our family will read the Word daily, take it seriously, enjoy it, obey it, cherish it. Thanks for this good word from “How Firm a Foundation!”
