THE BUILDING PROCESS

Building is a process that takes several materials, skills, effort and time to produce an outstanding product. While some things are born, most amazing things are built. While you were born into the world, there are many amazing things that God is building in your life.

Therefore let us learn to subject ourselves to and even enjoy the building process we find ourselves in. Instead of trying to just become, we engage the process of building so as to become. There is a building process going on with you right now and you have to appreciate where you are in the process, what is required of you so you can maximize the moment.

Time, effort, skill, longevity and continuity are all part of the building process. You must give time to whatever you are building as you put effort and skill into it, with a long term approach understanding that continuity is paramount. Your next miracle is being assembled by God and you are an active participant in this process.

SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 6:46-49 “But why do you call Me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do the things which I say? Whoever comes to Me, and hears My sayings and does them, I will show you whom he is like: He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock. But he who heard and did nothing is like a man who built a house on the earth without a foundation, against which the stream beat vehemently; and immediately it fell. And the ruin of that house was great.”

DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, teach me to give time to whatever I am building. May I build under your building process, amen.
