BUILDING WITH A GODLY PATTERN
The first verse of this Psalm holds the key to a successful life. ‘Unless the Lord builds the house they labour in vain who build it.’
In just about every aspect of life we need a pattern if we are to succeed. I wonder how many of us have attempted to assemble something without following the pattern, only to find we end up in a mess, and are then forced to revert to a piece of paper giving the direction.
Some keys we can learn from this Psalm:
· Govern your own life with Godly instruction so that you will avoid being caught in the trap of striving. It’s vain to rise early and stay up late
· Leaving a legacy is the key to a successful life. Children are a heritage from the Lord.
· A life of significance is better than a life of success.
The bible is full of examples of men and women who built their lives on a Godly pattern.
The Holy Spirit loves to direct the steps of every believer as they travel along the road of ascent.
