How many have grown a bigger room for Jesus? Are your other rooms bigger? The key room in you should be for God! Not for anything else but God. Some have sick rooms bigger than God. I want a bigger room for God.
Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. (Psalm 127:1 NIV)
Unless the Lord builds it, you’re laboring in vain. Too many are wasting time doing their own building. Love keeps your house together. Unless God, love, or word, builds this house, it’s in vain. God, Love, and Word must build the house or you’re wasting your time. Without these you will fail!
If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. (John 15:10 NIV)
God is love…keep His Word! God blesses your decisions, not your feelings. You must put Him first, regardless of your feelings. He wants to build your house so it won’t fall when the storms come. Too many haven’t tasted disasters…we will all experience the storms soon. We must be ready for the end times. This is the power that can get you through anything. It’s simple. Jesus only did what the Father told Him.
The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.” “No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.” But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.” Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.” “Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door. (Genesis 19:1-9 NIV)
Too many want people to like them. You’re going to have wickedness all around you.
