Build right!


THOUGHT OF THE DAY.

And after this one rose up Judas the Galilean, [who led an uprising] during the time of

the census, and drew away a popular following after him; he also perished and all his

adherents were scattered.

Now in the present case let me say to you, stand off (withdraw) from these men and let

them alone. For if this doctrine or purpose or undertaking or movement is of human origin,

it will fail (be overthrown and come to nothing);

But if it is of God, you will not be able to stop or overthrow or destroy them;

you might even be found fighting against God!”

Acts 5:37-39

 

As I read this scripture a few thoughts ran through my mind.

Are the things I am doing of God or of human origin? Am I 100% certain that God

is in it?

Gamaliel the Pharisee understood this principle.

He knew that if something was birthed of God it could not be stopped!

No matter how hard that thing was fought and resisted it would not be

stopped. Seek God’s guidance in all that you do. There is a blessing in that.

God cares about what you are doing today.

 

In all that you do make sure God is in it. Make sure it’s born of God and not man.

If it’s born of man it will not last. It was be stopped and burned up.

Make sure you are not using your time on the wrong things.

If you are not sure if what you doing is of God then pray.

If you not at peace about anything you doing then that’s a good indicator

it’s not from God.

God wants you to be focused on the right things.

He doesn’t want you to waste time on the wrong things.

Ask Him to come and make things clear.

He cares about you and is passionate about you accomplishing

the things He has for you.

As I close I want to encourage you with one more scripture,

 

“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.

Unless the Lord watches over the city,

the guards stand watch in vain.”

Psalm 126:1

  1. Such a good post. It reminds me to consider what my reasons are for the things I’m doing or planning. We can definitely sometimes make it more about us than the glory of God…
    God bless,

    • Thanks Ali.
      I agree. We always need to ask if we are building with God’s stamp of approval, always making sure He is leading us and not the other way round!
