Let us not be the builder

Let us not be the builder of our house. Let us surrender the building of our house to God the Creator, Redeemer, The Master Builder.

Our houses being built by God involves our complete surrender of self-will to the will of God, by faith. We must choose daily to die to self, that Christ may live and reign in us through the Holy Spirit. This involves our choice to practice temperance. God will empower us to carry out our faith choice.

Hebrews 3:3-4 KJV
[3] For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. [4] For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.

Psalm 127:1-5 KJV
[1] Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. [2] It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.

Psalm 121:1-8 KJV
[1] I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. [2] My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. [3] He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. [4] Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. [5] The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. [6] The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. [7] The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. [8] The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

2 Chronicles 6:5-6 KJV
[5] Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over my people Israel: [6] But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.
