“Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labour in vain…” Psalm 127:1a
What is God’s Heart for the Home?
What does a house being built by the Lord look like?
What does He promise to bless and give His support to in it?
These are crucial questions we must answer. Why? Look around: The state of the family in our country today is in crisis! There is so much distortion & confusion about what the family is, what God has intended it to be and how it is to function for His glory. It is so easy to become discouraged, anxious, fearful, and feel helpless when we see what is going on around us and we don’t know how to stand on the truth of what God promises to build the family upon.
But be encouraged loved one! God is the designer and architect of the home. He instituted it (Gen. 2) and He knows how it is to function for His glory. By His grace, He has given us the blueprint for it through His Word and has promised that if we stand upon His Word in faith & daily seek to obey Him by the Spirit, He will bless it & build it for His glory, no matter what is going on around us. Remember: God will always bless that which He builds!
