Each of us has built, is building, or will attempt to build a variety of things throughout our lives. Whether it be a career, a relationship, a marriage, or a family, we build over time and then we seek to protect that which we have invested our time in.
When we work solely by way of self-sufficiency, we are working in the dark, out of sync with God’s plans and purposes for good. When we seek to ensure that the Lord be the master builder of all that we undertake, we can be confident that He will establish a lasting result that is solid and true. While we are to remain watchful over all that is in our care, it is in God’s hands that we must ultimately place our reliance for security.
This morning, let’s keep this verse in mind and take a moment to seek the Lord’s guidance before hammering the first nail of the day. With God’s direction, we have the opportunity to make something built to last.
