The Master Builder is your strength and power. He is the One who builds your house.
I AM HE
You struggle so hard to ‘work’ your life. Your intentions are good, but sometimes intentions can become a distraction and you can forget that I AM the One that builds the house.
“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep.” Psalms 127:1-2
I know your frame, for I created it and I AM fully aware of what needs repair–it is I who sees you complete. For I had a blueprint of your life long before, just waiting for the moment you’d open that door and allow Me to begin.
The structure is built one piece at a time; sturdy and strong to assure it will last. But perfection takes time, please have patience with Me. You see, I have more than your blueprint in My Heart; I’ve known the finish–right from the start and…
I won’t stop until I AM there.
Continue to allow Me time to build. But, to see the project through–you must yield.
We have the rest of your life to do this, and then all of eternity to celebrate a job–
“For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not your own doing, it is the gift of God–not because of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:8-10
“As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6
He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:9-14
“And his gifts were that some should be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, for the equipment of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ; so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the cunning of men, by their craftiness in deceitful wiles.
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every joint with which it is supplied, when each part is working properly, makes bodily growth and upbuilds itself in love.” Ephesians 4:11-16
“For in him the whole fulness of deity dwells bodily, and you have come to fulness of life in him, who is the head of all rule and authority.” Colossians 2:9-10
“–that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, to lead a life worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.” Colossians 1:9b-12
“And I am sure that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6
“Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more abundantly than all that we could ask or think, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever Amen.” Ephesians 3:20
