Faith is like a house; it must be built on a strong foundation if it is going to stand tests and storms. Faith’s foundation is the Word of God. You cannot build a great faith life without it. The best part about this truth is that the Word of God will never fail. Its success rating stands at 100 percent.

Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses” (1 Kings 8:56 NIV). God’s own Word—His promises to the children of Israel—became the foundation for the Temple itself.
