Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain.
– Psalm 127:1
We are men who build and craft. We build cities; we build ideas; we build ministries, but the real skill of craftsmanship is rooted in the craftsman. If we allow the Lord, the maker of all, to build our ministry, our ideas, our lives, then we will see prosperity; we will see divine prosperity, that which no man can accredit himself to. We can construct ministry strategies with the most theological and creative of ingredients, but unless the Lord is the builder, we work in vain. We alone can accomplish nothing of eternal significance; when the Lord is our builder, we will witness and be apart of the most canorous and poignant of constructions.
