“Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.” – Psalm 127:1 (KJV)

The almighty God, although distinct from creation, is an embodiment of creation. In other words, no aspect of creation can exist without Him (John 1:3). He makes everything in heaven and on the earth relevant. He is responsible for giving the builder the ability to build and the watchman the ability to keep watch and ensure security.

God has a different way of relating to the those in the world, and His children. Those who disregard Him, like King Belshazzar, only have a short lifespan (Daniel 5:1–30). However, those who acknowledge Him and walk with Him live their lives to the full to the glory of His name, like Abraham (Genesis 25:8).

Dear beloved, have you set God aside? As a child of God, you proceeded from Him and cannot live a meaningful life without Him (1 Peter 1:23). You must work with Him and give Him the first place in your life to keep watch over your soul, and He will enable you build a wonderful life, family, business, etc. If He gave King Solomon wisdom to build his life and the nation of Israel, He will give you much more under the new covenant to do even more for Him. Hallelujah! Be an overcomer!

Prayer Point: My loving heavenly Father, I’m grateful to know that without you, nothing good can come out of my life. Please watch over my life, lead me, and guide me in everything I do. Stir up your wisdom in me to build my life to your glory, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
