A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE

I have always enjoyed walking and looking at houses…….I have seen all kinds, old ones and new ones.  I often wonder who lives in them, what their lives are like and if they are happy in them.  The old saying of no one knows what goes on behind closed doors is very true.  I wonder too if they honor GOD in their home or are they running in the rat race.

HEBREWS 3: 4  “NOW EVERY HOUSE IS BUILT BY SOMEONE, BUT THE ONE WHO BUILT EVERYTHING IS GOD.”

Houses are built by human hands, but the souls within them are built by GOD.  I am thankful someone built our house to the best of their ability.  It has served us well so far with a solid roof and many rooms of peace and comfort.

PSALM 127: 1  “UNLESS THE LORD BUILDS A HOUSE, IT’S BUILDERS LABOR OVER IT IN VAIN.”

May our labor never be in vain and may GOD build our inner house one step and one lesson at a time.  HE builds a spiritual house within us…….a pure and holy house where HE can reside because HE comes to live in each one of our hearts.

Charles Spurgeon has said this:  “One of the things Christianity cannot bear is laziness.”

And so, in all things and in all building of things, whether it is a home, family or our inner being, GOD builds within us and without.  Let us build upon the salvation of our GOD!  HE is a solid foundation……secure and strong and true.  HE will build within us a spiritual house of HIS making and HE will call it good.

HEBREWS 3: 3  “FOR JESUS IS CONSIDERED WORTHY OF MORE GLORY THAN MOSES JUST AS THE BUILDER HAS MORE HONOR THAN THE HOUSE.”

So be thankful today…….for your home, apartment, condo or whatever kind of roof you have over your head.  But be evermore thankful for GOD coming and building a spiritual home within your heart!  HE will continue to build there and in the end, it will be a glorious place because HE completes all that HE builds. HE will give you a heart of flesh and remove your heart of stone.  What a comfort for all who believe and stand upon HIS promises, a solid foundation for all of eternity!

2 TIMOTHY 2: 19  “NEVERTHELESS, GOD’S SOLID FOUNDATION STANDS FIRM, SEALED WITH THIS INSCRIPTION: “THE LORD KNOWS THOSE WHO ARE HIS.”

  1. As with all your posts, Maxine, I love this. You do shine God’s glory.
    What you said, “But be evermore thankful for GOD coming and building a spiritual home within your heart! HE will continue to build there and in the end, it will be a glorious place because HE completes all that HE builds.” reminds me of Romans 8.28-30, “28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. 29For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. 30Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.”
    And, of course, of the mansion He is building for us now, in John 14.2-4, “2In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. 4And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.”

    He gives us SO MANY promises! He is glorious!

    1. Our Pastor Adam just preached on the many mansions scripture. But it said the most important part of all that is there is that HE is preparing a PLACE for us. Meaning we belong with HIM……..forever!!
      Have a blessed and peaceful Sunday Kathy. Rest in HIM!
