You or God?

Unless the Lord builds the house,
the builders labor in vain.
Psalm 127:1

Woman, if you love the Lord, let your Master build your house.

Any striving is worthless.

Your Lord will build your house— just move out of the way.

The woman, who trusts in the Lord, believes he can do what only he can do.

To usurp his domain is to put yourself up as supreme.

That always ends in disaster.

If you say that you serve an all-powerful God, then prove it.

You stay quiet and serve, and watch, and wait, and while you watch and wait, love your neighbor.

Love your husband.

Love your daughter-in-law, your mother-in-law, and simply put, everyone.

Or you can play God, and strive in vain.

Which way do you walk?

Is it narrow, and simple, and with love?

Is your burden easy, and do you cast your cares?

Is your mouth filled with praise, and like the birds, do you not worry about tomorrow?

Who is praised with your mouth?

Who is exalted in your heart?

You or God?

I pray that you will seek the Lord, at all times, and that he will truly be your Lord.

All else is a total waste.
