PRAYER: Lord, Help Me To Build Through You, My House Of Life

Humans are accustomed to building houses, but God creates people. According to the Bible, without God builds the house, no matter how wonderfully a person constructs it, their labor is in vain. Without God, the house cannot stand. Without God, our families and lives cannot prosper.

Chapters 1 and 2 of Genesis are excellent revelations of God's will. God intended for Adam and Eve to live contentedly in a lovely home. In order for them to live there, He created the Garden of Eden, where there was no damage or pain and where everything was in its proper place. You are free to eat from any tree in the garden, but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, God stated to Adam and Eve. The verse demonstrates God's will and providence. God wished for Adam and Eve to heed His commands, welcome His coming, and worship Him in the temple He had erected.

However, Adam and Eve disregarded God's guidance when they were constructing their house of life. They constructed it how they saw fit. They plucked fruit from the tree of the understanding of good and evil, a representation of God's might. What came out of it? They stopped feeling love for one another and began blaming one another. They were forced to eat by the sweat of their brow and go back to the place where they had been plucked. Therefore, people who construct their houses of life independently of God would do it in vain.

The house that God builds for you will be your house of life if you walk in close relationship with Him by praising and relying on Him. The home that you and God construct together won't sway during a downpour or a flood. The work of the builder will not be in vain, but rather fruitful and significant. Your life and everything related to you will be preserved by God. Do not rely on anyone else.
