The first day of this New Year, I woke up early with a burning desire to spend time with the Lord. My coffee and Bible in tow, I walked up the stairs in hopes of hearing what He had in store for me. As I sat at my weathered farm desk, wrapped in a cozy blanket, I heard Him speak, "Unless I build the house, you will labor in vain." As these words emanated through my soul I quickly turned to Psalm 127:1. There His Words so powerfully and beautifully were penned... "Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain." I must admit these words so powerfully moved me that I passionately declared out loud in prayer, "YOU GOD ARE BUILDER THIS YEAR!"
I encourage you to allow the Great Architect, God our Builder, to build every area of your life... your marriage, your friendships, your relationships, your ministry, your business, your finances. He has the perfect "Blue Print" already designed and laid out. All you have to do is daily submit to His Lordship, His leading, His Spirit, and His Word. And as you do, your life will be built in a way that is unshakeable and immovable, firmly established and prosperous. We no longer want to labor and toil in vain. God's way is the best way. You God Are Builder in 2018!
