Unless the Lord Builds the House

Here we are at the beginning of a new year, looking forward to see what the Lord will do with us as we continue our journey to Cherokee. One lesson we have been reminded of again and again is that no matter who we are, what we have done or thought we have done, or who we know or thought we knew, or what plans we have made, “unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain” (Ps 127:1, ESV). This is both humbling and encouraging. This passage reminds us of our weakness and dependence on the Lord, while assuring us that He can establish our plans for His purpose and glory. Of all the worldly vocations Jesus could have engaged in, providentially He was a carpenter, and He didn’t retire went He went to glory (Jn 14:1-4, ESV). Jesus still is the Master Builder, and He challenges us to believe that today. I hope you will accept that challenge and labor with us to see what the Lord builds in Cherokee.
