“For every house is built by someone, but He who BUILT all things is God.”
A lot of what we see every day is built by people. All the buildings, cars, computers & furniture were manmade. Our family absolutely enjoys and is so thankful for the home that God has given us. It was BUILT very well. It was BUILT to last! But a person physically BUILT it.
Today’s verse reminds us that God was involved long before any man BUILT anything. God created the raw materials and the ideas for everything we can see. No human can create; we can only BUILD from what God has already supplied. God alone can create and BUILD eternally and that’s a claim only He can make!
When we need the raw materials to construct our future we must find them in God first. God will show us exactly what’s needed to BUILD a future that’s guaranteed to last! No matter what tomorrows needs, God has already prepared a supply for it. God has a plan for what tomorrow will look like & the process that’s needed to BUILD it.
This week let’s BUILD our future God’s way. Let’s use the raw materials He’s prepared for us. Let’s BUILD what He wants us to BUILD. Let’s BUILD it to last. Here are a few keys from the Bible that’ll help us to build well for our future…
- Need finances… we are to be generous – Luke 6:38
- Need help… we are to help others – Ephesians 6:8
- Need wisdom… we are to ask God for it – James 1:5
- Don’t know what to do… do justly, love mercy and walk humbly – Micah 6:8
