Every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God
Happy 200 prayers together.
This verse stood out to me last night as I was reading the word. I jumped around within a few different books as I started in Luke and made my way through some psalms and then back to Luke and ended in Hebrews.
While reading through the first few chapters, I came across chapter 3. The title is Jesus Greater Than Moses. The whole chapter speaks to how Moses was an esteemed man in history and one that does deserve validation and respect, but if you respect Moses, then you have to understand that Jesus was a step above Moses in that he was 100% man. So it’s not to bash on Moses but really to speak on the power of Jesus. Really speaking to how Jesus is superior to Moses just as a builder is superior to the home.
This verse just stopped me in my reading, and I wanted to stay here for a little while, just really meditate on that. God is the builder of all things. It was such a perfect verse for today’s prayer.
Together we celebrate consistent prayer. I don’t care if you started praying with us last week or back when I started this podcast in June; we’ve all been praying for some time now. If today is your first day, I encourage you to keep tuning in.
When I look at this community, I am thankful. Thankful because I know who the builder is. It’s not me; I am no one. But Jesus uses us all to build His story. We all play a role if you see it or not. Every day, you come into contact with people, and you have the ability to become the hands and feet of Jesus right where you find yourself. It’s a blessing to be able to do life with Him, and it’s a blessing to be able to do life with this community.
I am eager to grow deeper in my faith, and I am honored you have joined me on the journey.
As you go about your day today, look at the things around you. He is the builder of all things: your home, your relationships, your careers. If any of these things feel as if they go in the opposite direction of God’s will, then maybe you forced a door on a pillar of your life in which a door was not intended. Interior designers need permits to reconstruct walls, don’t start building doors when they aren’t approved by the architect.
Father God, thank you for building this beautiful community. Thank you for 200 prayers together. Thank you for 200 times we stopped and thought of your goodness, reflected on your word, surrendered our morning to you. Thank you for being the builder of our lives. Thank you for the relationships that surround us. Thank you to the community of believers that tune in each morning. We ask that you bless the next 100 episodes. We love you with everything in us; please bless the day ahead of us. It is in your Holy name that we pray, AMEN!
