THE MASTER BUILDER
Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. —Psalm 127:1
Is the Lord your builder? Look at your house/life. How is He building? In what ways is He building? Why is He building as He is? Can others see that He is your Builder? Have they heard that He is your Builder? Does your building/life further His building reputation? Are others taking notice of what is being built and who the Builder is? Do you share and recommend your Builder to others?
So, take a look at your house/life, if He is not the builder then what you are building is in vain. Are you building along with the Builder? To do so we need to listen to the Builder and then put into practice what the Builder tells us to build.
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.” —Matthew 7:24-27
So again, I ask, is Jesus the Builder of Your life? What is He saying to you about building your house/life? Are you being obedient to Him? All that is being built which is not overseen by Him, but ourselves, is being built in vain. So, may you and I take a hard look at our lives and ask the question—- Is Jesus the builder of my house/life? If not, then we will be like the foolish builder and everything will come crashing down. Nothing will last for eternity. All will have been in vain, for nought…
Dear Father may Jesus be the Builder of my house/life. Oh, that I would listen and build along with Him according to His desires. Yes, may I build according to His blueprint and not my own sketches. May this be so by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus. So may it be! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdFoMvQ7s48
