Devotion: Build with God


Psalms 127 : 1-2 ” 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. 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.”

You may work so hard thinking that you are pleasing God, but if that project wasn’t birthed by God, you are doing it in vain. You should never spend your energy on that which God hasn’t approved. That is why we need heavenly mandate to do anything in this world.

Build with God.

Uzzah once did a very good work but unfortunately it was not endorsed by God. He wanted to protect the Ark of Covenant from falling down from oxen. He did a correct job but he wasn’t the right person to do it. God had earlier said the Ark was supposed to be carried by the priests on the shoulders( Exodus25:14).

He died by doing a good job but not endorsed by God.2 Samuel 6 : 6-7 ” And when they came to the threshing floor of Nacon, Uzzah put out his hand to the ark of God and took hold of it, for the oxen stumbled.  And the anger of the LORD was kindled against Uzzah, and God struck him down there because of his error, and he died there beside the ark of God.”

Be careful with your relationships, job, and any other thing that you may be doing now. It may look good but if it is not endorsed by God, you may suffer bad consequences. Therefore ensure that before you build anything or are involved in anything, God should endorse it first.


Prayer: Thank You Father because of your Word. I will never be involved in anything that is outside your Word. I will be lead and guided by your Spirit before I engage in anything. In Jesus Name. Amen.
