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. It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.
Thank You for today. Thank You for protecting our cities. Thank You for guarding our gates. Thank You for building our houses. For we know that if we build our house ourselves, it will not be on a firm foundation. Help us to build our homes on the foundation that is rock solid – Jesus Christ! Thank You for giving us rest. You are such a good and faithful Father. You have good and perfect gifts for each of us. Help us to slow down and put ourselves in a position to receive all those gifts You wish to bestow. Help us to each receive!
This we ask in the precious and mighty name of Jesus Christ.
