Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
The meaning of “not make haste” is to flee in hasty alarm, or to be ashamed, or to be confounded. He who rests on and in God shall not have the strife of confusion and doubt, nor flee in sudden panic. A believer needs to be firmly rooted on the foundation stone that is Jesus Christ and Him alone. If not, then the believer is in grave danger of being tossed about to and fro from sound doctrine, fleeing from God’s truth at the slightest tempest of the tempter.
