Midweek Meditations – Psalm 127

My Control Is No Control At All | The Secure Woman

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain.

Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.

In vain you rise early and stay up late,toiling for food to eat—

for he grants sleep to those he loves.

Psalm 127:1-2

As we start to rebuild our lives, our homes, our work lives, our industries, our services, our country, we must build on God’s ways, God’s principles, God’s justices, God’s mercy, according to God’s laws, for if we don’t then really it is all in vain, and it all may come tumbling down amongst us again.

Unless we build our homes surrendered to God it is all in vain, no matter how beautiful we make them.

Unless we build our churches on the love of God it is all in vain and they will not be the places of refuge and worship they should be.

Unless our defences, our safety is trusting in God it is all in vain for no security is found except in God alone.

Unless our industry and services are built on the principles & justices of God, then it is all in vain for greed and corruption will quickly leak in and spread insidiously among the people.

Unless our work lives are surrendered to God and we work as if serving Him then it is all in vain, all our labour and burning the candle at both ends is in vain; even if we amass a bundle of wealth and material possessions, it is all vain and gives fleeting pleasure.

Unless our lives are centred and surrendered to God and His ways, we will never find our peace, our resting place.

Unless ….

Unless ….

Unless the Lord …..

The Lord …

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain.

Let us build with God, let us build as God directs, let us build according to His ways, let us trust in Him alone for His providence, His supplies, His wisdom, His mercy and His love.
