[The Glory Unveiled]
“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.”
( Psalms 127:1 )
God is the original version of whatever we try to produce or reproduce. He is the pattern that makes way for the realities of heaven to be displayed through creation and the creature. In a certain sense we are like puppets in the hands of God. We can do nothing on our own and by ourselves. Whatever we display on the scene of life is what the master permits directly or indirectly through us. Everything takes its source and meaning from God and without God, they lose their meaning. Even from the very core of our being, it is the spirit (breath of God) that gives us life. And every other thing we need for the sustenance of that life comes from God. Whatever we do thinking we don’t need God’s input is actually Gods input that made us realize how to do what we want to do. So at every point in time, God is the one [permitting] all things through us. So that the apostle Paul would say ( see Galatians 2:20) that the life He now lives in the flesh, he lives by faith in the son of God. Except the Lord builds, nothing stands up from the ground and except He watches over us, nobody and nothing is protected in-spite of the watchmen and the security systems that may be in place. By implication, our verse of scripture admonishes us to involve God in all things because without Him whatever we do is in vain.
Prayer_Bead: Omnipotent father, source who builds before anything can stand as built and watches for the watchmen to be seen as effective, display your glory through me.
