Today Reminder - 19 January 2012

My prayer for you for today is that you will renew your foundation in Jesus so that you can build knowing you will not fall. In Jesus Name

1 Corinthians 3:10-11
Because of God's grace to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ.

Are you building, renovating or breaking down? Building a house or even just renovating can be a stressful business. How is it going to look, how long will it take and what is it going to actually cost you? When it finally starts there are delays, problems and changes and yes naturally there is the rain. I can’t help thinking of Psalm 127:1-2

Unless the LORD builds a house,
the work of the builders is wasted.
Unless the LORD protects a city,
guarding it with sentries will do no good.
It is useless for you to work so hard
from early morning until late at night,
anxiously working for food to eat;
for God gives rest to His loved ones.

To live a life as a Christian is much like building a house. We start with the foundation and that is Jesus. This is the rock that the wise builder used. As time progresses the walls will come up, the piping and wiring, the windows, plaster, the roof, doors and the finishing touches. To build your house you must use the right material. The word of God, the Bible is your bricks, friends can be the paint or plaster, the Church could be your doors, worshipping can be part of the finishing touches and God is your roof. When you build on your house today, build with the master builder, build with God. Let Him help you to reinforce your walls against the attacks of the enemy, let Him be your roof so that every time you look up for help you will see Him, let Jesus be your foundation, so that where ever you walk you will see Him and know Him. 

Psalm 121:1-2 I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth!

My prayers are with you, friend of Jesus. Today is going to be a beautiful day created by a great and amazing God. Wherever and whatever you find yourself building on your house today, know that with Jesus you are building with the right foundation, the right material and the right tools.

Have a nice day.
