Leaning on God

Psalm 127:1 says; “Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted.  Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good.”  Do you believe this today?  God must be in control of your life inside and out.  We can build and buy the best things this world has to offer, but they are meaningless without God.  Jesus calls us to seek first the kingdom of heaven in Matthew 6:33 while preaching the Sermon on the Mount.  He continues by saying that all the things that you need will be added to you.  We must cultivate a relationship with God in Christ and place Him first in our lives.  Our hearts will be intertwined with His will and the Lord will become the one that provides the earthly things that we need.  May God bless us as well seek Him first and allow Him to build up our lives and provide for our every need according to His will and good pleasure.
