“Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain.”
If your are like me you want God’s plan and will for every area of life… not just something that is okay. According to the above scripture, if God is not backing your decisions, your plans, your vision then it will be in vain as far as God’s Kingdom purposes. In other words, you can push through your plans or agenda and may even “get the house built” but you will labor in your own efforts and in the end, it will not give you much satisfaction.
What can we do to ensure we are connecting with His plans and purposes? When we face decisions and choices regarding our future, whether your choices involve spiritual things or natural things, we should ask… Lord are you behind my plans? Many times we ask God to bless OUR plans and He will bless them as much as He can. But He can not put His full blessing on what we want. If we want God’s full blessing, then we need to spend time seeking Him for His will and plans.
We must be willing to wait to hear from Him and His approval if we want His highest and best for our futures. Please know that God knows the future better than we know the past. He sees trouble ahead that we have no idea about. He knows what is good or bad for us. Be willing to wait until you are confident that God is backing your choices. He knows where you should work, who you should marry, and where should should live, etc.
God can only bless your plans so far. Why don’t you get God’s full blessing by asking God regarding any new seasons or decisions in your life. If the Lord is not building your house, then it will be laborious and in vain. Get His plans and purposes for every season of life and see His full blessing!
