Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.-Psalm 127:1
What is the writer of this Psalm telling us? What message is he trying to convey to us? The message is really very very simple. And it is this: following God’s will and plan for your life will lead to success. For you see we want to try and build successful lives around our own plans and the things we want to do. And we we completely ignore God and the plans he has for our life’s. We then wonder why we never succeed in life and why our plans always seem to fail. They fail because they were never built on a firm foundation.
Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.-Matthew 7:24-27 NIV
Build your life on the firm foundation of God’s will, plan and purpose for your life and it will be successful.
