A Sure Foundation
Chapter 28 sits among a series of prophecies to the nations. In these prophecies, God gave Judah the confidence to trust in Him because the other nations would ultimately fail to preserve themselves and others. Israel (North) and Judah (South) received prophetic messages concerning their wandering ways and choices. All choices bring particular consequences established by God. We have the freedom to make our decisions, but God reserves the right to pre-determine the consequences. He consistently reminds us that He wants to direct us toward life as He has created it. For those who choose to build their lives upon His foundation, they will receive the blessings of a covenant relationship. As believers in Christ, we receive the opportunity to know God and follow Him through Jesus Christ.
