Title: We are nothing without God. God works! 7/9/17
“Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted…Its 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. A family cannot ever experience the spiritual bond that comes from Christ that God brings to the relationship.
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, like in the psalms above. Yet, in all his insight, he fell away from God and spiraled downward later in life. Yet, 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. GOD WORKS! Solomon wanted his readers to know that the bitterness of learning through personal 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 todays 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). Just, be careful to maintain a balance: WORK WHILE TRUSTING GOD, AND TRUST GOD WHILE NOT WORKING, AND REST WHILE TRUSTING GOD! Read the Bible daily.
