DAY 16 SATURDAY: MAY 2020

BUILD YOUR LIFE WITH GOD!

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 (Psalm 127:1).

Every Christian is expected to build his life with God because He is the Master Builder in life. There is no way one can build his life alone without God. It is God that builds one’s reputation and character in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that 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. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed expects him to build his entire life with Him. He should know vividly the fact that without God who is the Master Builder, he would definitely labor in vain to build his life. Hence, a person without God has no reputation and character in life forever.

Jesus Christ illustrated this vividly when He made referenced to a building that is built on sand and that which is built on a rock in life. He went further to say in Luke 6:48 thus, “He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.” Therefore, a life that is not built on the Solid Rock of life which is Jesus Christ is indeed bound to crash in life. Indeed, whoever that is building his life along with God can never experience humiliation in life forever.

In fact, for you to build your life with God you need to walk with Him by faith in His Word in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” In fact, absolute faith in God is the bed-rock in building one’s life in the Solid Rock that abided in life. A Christian is expected to have absolute faith in God by building his reputation and character in the Lord in life. Hence, a life that is totally devoid of God is indeed absolute vanity in life forever.

Daily Tip: No one can build his life without God; therefore, we all need God to build our reputation and character through the Solid Rock of life that abided forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building (1 Corinthians 3:9).
