Be still and hear from Him -- hear how and then build.

"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him." Psalm 37:7

You'll be so glad you did.. I promise, you'll be glad you did.

Remember the last time you did something important and then you were like totally stoked out that you didn’t forget to. Wait on the Lord -- not worth forgetting. 

When the wall is lying in rubbel, rust and ruin... so broken burned out and with lots of weeds everywhere.. know that there's always a right man for the job.
Remember Nehemiah the builder, The protector, the man of God? He needed a lot of money to repair, restore and rebuild the wall... perhaps he could have started a GoFundMe page? Naw.
Listen, when you're doing God's work you're going to face mocking maligning meanness and perhaps mushrooming opposition ......and it might cost a bit of money too.
But where God guides.. he provides, where he leads.. he feeds, where his finger points.. his hand of abundant provision opens. We don't need to resort to worldly manipulation or corrupt Telethon Tuesday TV evangelists ways.
We can pray and obey -- God will provide. Your part in building matters -- you matter to God and so do your friends. Your family does too! Every one of us has a part to play so to speak.

Be still before Him -- before God!

As you live your life of intimacy with Christ, there will of course be times to be busy working smart, building.. as well as daily times to be still alone with Him. His Love and mercy never run out. They are new every morning -- He loves you regardless of your performing.
The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth to strengthen the people God wants to work through. Would you be that person? Would you go tell, invite, and bring a friend to where they really need to be?
Lord, what we know not.. teach us. What we have not.. give us. What we are not.. make us. So many lives need Your rebuilding.
