THE WORD for the WEEK

Title: Let God Build your Life!                                                       11/5/17

 

Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted…It’s useless for you to work…anxiously working…for God gives…to his loved ones” Psalm 127:1-2

 

Life without God is senseless. Whether we build a house, establish a career or raise a family, we must have God as the foundation.

The above scripture is attributed to Solomon as the author. Solomon became king after his father King David died around 970 BC. He asked God for wisdom in the early part of his kingship   (1 King 3:9) and became the wisest made alive. The Lord was indeed with Solomon who made him to study, teach, judge, and write stories and poetry. Yet, in all his insight, he fell away from God and spiraled downward later in life. Solomon looked back over his life with an attitude of humility and repentance. He came to realize that life without God is meaningless. WE ARE NOTHING WITHOUT GOD! Solomon wanted his readers to know that building his house is useless without God; that the bitterness of learning through personal bad choices and experiences can be avoided; learning that everything lived including the secret things, good or bad, everything apart from God is empty, hollow and meaningless. God commands us to follow his instructions that are written in his Holy Word but moreover, he calls us to be obedient and do what he says.

In today’s world, Satan tries to condemn our Spirits by the negative things he tries to tell our minds. He tells us things like “you will never make it”, or “Nobody cares about you because if they did you would see it” or “you made it this far by yourself” or “I can eat that” “I can drink that”. He likes to cause separation and isolation and destroy relationships and family. God is not against hard work (Proverbs 31). We must be diligent to be careful to maintain a balance: WORK   Pray fully TRUSTING GOD, AND Pray fully TRUST GOD WHILE NOT WORKING, AND REST WHILE TRUSTING GOD!    Read the Bible daily.

Why, you may ask?

WE ARE NOTHING WITHOUT GOD!

We, at Med-Life-Fit are here for you!  We want to encourage you to continue what you have learned in Lifestyle Change Medicine. Make God your highest priority and let him do the building! Remember Deuteronomy 31:8, “It is the Lord who goes before you!”
