God wants to Build (our house) Will be let him? Will we participate?
Cooperate? Take it seriously?
He has me studying about this right now. it must be important.
“O you afflicted one,Tossed with tempest, and not comforted,
Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems,
And lay your foundations with sapphires.
I will make your pinnacles of rubies,Your gates of crystal,And all your walls of precious stones. ” Isaiah 54: 11-12
Psalm 127:1 “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.”
Proverbs 24:3 “Through wisdom a house is built, And by understanding it is established…..”
1 Corn 3:10 “According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.
14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”
So how do you think we “build with precious things? Any takers? Feel free to share. I love to hear what others are hearing from the Lord about this.
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:” Matthew 7:24
