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.” Psalms 127:1 KJV

We are that house in which God is building. Our duty is to allow Him to build in us that which He already predestined and preordained us to be.

Many are struggling to build their body structure. By going to the gym, by building their mind or by reading all kinds of novels, which is not all wrong. But God Almighty commands us to exercise ourselves in Godliness (that is spiritual exercise) so that He can build us up.

For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.” 1 Timothy 4:8 KJV (Read also 1 Peter 2:1-2)

Someone is saying: “but how can God effectively build in us?” It’s simple. When we spend time to read our Bible, pray and practice the instructions He gives to us. That is the how.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father,
I thank You for Your Word. I am glad to know that You want to build in me. I agree with Your plan in Jesus name, Amen.
