Psalm 124-127 B

“Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.” 127:1

The verse is washing over me after a long week of stopping myself from Doing. (Bless Bethany’s heart, she is on the receiving end of my ups and downs. Find yourself a good friend like her, who will discuss religious sin cycles and Veronica Mars with you in the same text thread.)

Isn’t that verse great? We don’t need to waste our time and energy coming up with plans or our own projects. We don’t need to labor in vain.

This verse says more than I ever could, so I’ll keep my response brief. How does this hit you?

Are you spinning your wheels on something? Eating the bread of anxious toil? This is not of God. When he drops building materials and blue prints in your lap, peace will wash over you.

He makes it so easy, and we make it so complicated. Maybe the project itself won’t be easy, but at least you’ll know it’s of Him and not of yourself.
