Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.
Psalms 127:1 ESV
Doing anything outside of the way the Lord would want it means that it won’t last. You can spend your time planning, assembling resources and putting a plan into action, but if God isn’t in it, forget it!
This means that God is in control. This means that you have to let God be in control and trust Him. This is hard sometimes because His ways are not always our ways. But we have the assurance that if we let Him do it, it will last.
The heart of the issue is trust. Do you trust the Lord to do it? Is He really God or just a habit or a “feel-good” for you?
Trust goes to the fact that He is All-Powerful, All-Knowing and He will come through for His people in His time.
It might be that your prayer needs to be “Lord, help me to stay out of Your way! Help me to let You take-over.” Then wait and let Him do it.
Remember, He can do more for you in one second than you can try to do for yourself in a whole lifetime.
Do you need to step back and let Him build in your life? Trust Him, Give Him time and see what happens!
Father, help me to relinquish control over to You. Be the builder in my life so the things that You do in me will last.
