Good Morning Warrior!
It’s The Lord’s Day, Hallelujah!
Word for the Day:
(1 Kings 4 & 5)
“A Foundation for God’s House”
Text: 1 Kings 5:17
“And the king commanded them to quarry large stones, costly stones, and hewn stones, to lay the foundation of the temple.”
“A Foundation for God’s House,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Solomon is Building a Foundation for “a House for the NAME of the Lord my God.” And he’s quarrying “large, costly, hewn stones,” for this Foundation.
Unlike the stones of the walls and columns that will be seen and admired by people - these stones of the Foundation will be “unseen,” hidden out of the sight of others.
I thought about this and God reminded me of the “hidden and secret work” He has done in my life, that has laid the Foundation for the “house for the NAME of the Lord My God “in my heart.”
The greatest work God has done in me has been the hidden, deep, and secret work in my heart, soul, and my life that only He and I know…..
Oh yes, these stones were quarried out of the hard places of suffering, where costly and precious lessons of God’s Faithfulness were learned, and hewn with tears by God’s Grace and Mercy.
Oh yeah, these Stones are Large, Costly, and Carefully Crafted by the Grace and Mercy of God Himself for the Foundation of His house in my heart…..
How about you, Warrior? Have you any Stones like these in the Foundation of your house for your God?
I’m sure you do! You have Plenty of these Stones!
Yes, my fellow Warrior, you and I are Building a house for the Name of the Lord our God, and all the materials are provided by the stuff of life we pass through every day. We’ll live in this spiritual house with our Commander, all the days of our life. I think David was thinking about this when he shared with us the One Thing That He Desired and Sought After:
“One thing I have desired of the LORD,
That will I seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD
All the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the LORD,
And to inquire in His temple.”(Psa. 27:4).
So consider this Warrior, in every trial and suffering you pass through, with God at your side, remember He is carefully crafting another Precious, Costly, Stone for your Growing and Expanding Foundation for God’s house in your Heart.” Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
