Build on the Foundation of the Word
Unless the Lord builds your house
It is like a tottering fence;
Like a house built by a mouse,
Like a city without defence.
Unless you’re standing on the Word,
You’re building castles in the air
And vanity will be your reward
The truth in this matter is crystal clear.
As for me and my household
We will let the Lord build our house
So that we can stand, strong and bold;
When the storm and wind blow on every house.
We choose to build on the foundation of the Word,
Regardless of what the world says.
We choose to be guided by the counsel of the God
And hold fast to what God commands and says.
Psalm 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. Amen
The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks.
Conscious of their own natural defenselessness, the conies resort to burrows in the rocks, and are secure from their enemies. My heart, be willing to gather a lesson from these feeble folk. Thou art as weak and as exposed to peril as the timid cony, be as wise to seek a shelter. My best security is within the munitions of an immutable Jehovah, where His unalterable promises stand like giant walls of rock. It will be well with thee, my heart, if thou canst always hide thyself in the bulwarks of His glorious attributes, all of which are guarantees of safety for those who put their trust in Him. Blessed be the name of the Lord, I have so done, and have found myself like David in Adullam, safe from the cruelty of my enemy; I have not now to find out the blessedness of the man who puts his trust in the Lord, for long ago, when Satan and my sins pursued me, I fled to the cleft of the rock Christ Jesus, and in His riven side I found a delightful resting-place. My heart, run to Him anew to-night, whatever thy present grief may be; Jesus feels for thee; Jesus consoles thee; Jesus will help thee. No monarch in his impregnable fortress is more secure than the cony in his rocky burrow. The master of ten thousand chariots is not one whit better protected than the little dweller in the mountain’s cleft. In Jesus the weak are strong, and the defenceless safe; they could not be more strong if they were giants, or more safe if they were in heaven. Faith gives to men on earth the protection of the God of heaven. More they cannot need, and need not wish. The conies cannot build a castle, but they avail themselves of what is there already: I cannot make myself a refuge, but Jesus has provided it, His Father has given it, His Spirit has revealed it, and lo, again to-night I enter it, and am safe from every foe.
“He shall gather the lambs with his arm.”
Our good Shepherd has in his flock a variety of experiences, some are strong in the Lord, and others are weak in faith, but he is impartial in his care for all his sheep, and the weakest lamb is as dear to him as the most advanced of the flock. Lambs are wont to lag behind, prone to wander, and apt to grow weary, but from all the danger of these infirmities the Shepherd protects them with his arm of power.
He finds new-born souls, like young lambs, ready to perish — he nourishes them till life becomes vigorous; he finds weak minds ready to faint and die—he consoles them and renews their strength. All the little ones he gathers, for it is not the will of our heavenly Father that one of them should perish. What a quick eye he must have to see them all! What a tender heart to care for them all! What a far-reaching and potent arm, to gather them all!
In his lifetime on earth he was a great gatherer of the weaker sort, and now that he dwells in heaven, his loving heart yearns towards the meek and contrite, the timid and feeble, the fearful and fainting here below. How gently did he gather me to himself, to his truth, to his blood, to his love, to his church! With what effectual grace did he compel me to come to himself! Since my first conversion, how frequently has he restored me from my wanderings, and once again folded me within the circle of his everlasting arm!
The best of all is, that he does it all himself personally, not delegating the task of love, but condescending himself to rescue and preserve his most unworthy servant. How shall I love him enough or serve him worthily? I would fain make his name great unto the ends of the earth, but what can my feebleness do for him? Great Shepherd, add to thy mercies this one other, a heart to love thee more truly as I ought.
The Lord is my Shepherd

But his delight is in the law of the Lord and on His law he meditates day and night. For he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth his fruit in due season. His leaves also shall not wither and whatever he does shall prosper. (Ps1:1-3 Heb4:12, Prov4:22-24, Ps119:105,130,165)

Therefore neither death, nor life nor principalities nor powers impending or threatening, nor things to come nor height nor depth; nothing shall by any means separate me from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus. In all these things I am more than a conqueror. (Rom8:37-39, John11, 20, Num14, Jos1)

Ask of me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance, the uttermost part of the earth for your possession.

SHRINK YOUR FEARS
|‘When I am afraid, I will trust in you.’ Psalms 56:3|
Mary loved being a homemaker. She’d been married for thirty years to John, a successful businessman. Because John had always taken care of things, Mary had learned never to take risks. As a result, her biggest fear was that she’d be left alone one day. Sometimes she would tell her friends, ‘I hope I go before John because I don’t think I could handle things by myself.’ But then John became ill and Mary was placed in the position of caring for him, plus having to make all the decisions for them both. It was nerve-wracking at first. But once she put her trust in God and decided to take charge, she made an interesting discovery: Security doesn’t lie in having things, but in handling them! She found that facing her fears was easy compared to the years she’d spent feeling inadequate, helpless and dependent. Facing your fears is always easier than living with helplessness. In fact, when you let fear stop you, you end up living with feelings of dread and helplessness that are a hundred times worse than if you had just faced your fears and moved forward. The truth is, if you tell yourself often enough that you can’t do something, you will be unable to do it-even though you have the talent, time, resources, strategy, and friends to accomplish it. Only those who say they can, do. Saying you believe in yourself and the God who lives within you may not guarantee your success, but saying you don’t will guarantee your failure. So today, face your fears head on, and watch them shrink.
