Except the Lord…4
Psalms 127:1 “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.”
Romans 9:15 “For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.”
Romans 9:16 “So then [it is] not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.”
He said, “…not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.” It’s all about His great mercy!
I want that to sink into your spirit! He also said, “…I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” You can’t do anything about that!
All your hard work, “hustling” and keeping late nights to work means nothing, except the Lord builds! Hear this:
Psalms 127:2 “It’s useless to rise early and go to bed late, and work your worried fingers to the bone…”(MSG)
Friend, it has been all about Him and it’s high time you recognised your limitations and give Him all the glory. It is not about your hustling, willingness and running after wealth that brought it to you, it’s because He showed you mercy!
As this great year gradually draws to a close, I want you to sit back meditate on God’s goodness. He has indeed been faithful.
Somebody once told me that the security in his area is good because they have a police post and vigilante group patrolling their area. That is good but then, “…except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.”
Except the Lord gives you sleep, your expensive bed is useless. Except he keeps you, the police, vigilante group and even soldiers can’t protect you, bullets don’t stop demons, I hope you know!
Except the Lord gives you appetite, that delicious looking, well garnished food is in vain!
EXCEPT THE LORD…Selah!
