Topic: You Need The Help Of God
Author: Pastor Abraham David
If the LORD does not build the house, the work of the builders is useless; if the LORD does not protect the city, it is useless for the sentries to stand guard.Psalms 127:1 GNB
Everyone needs God’s help because without His help, everything one does is a wasted effort, only with His help can one do something great and reasonable.
Some people think they have all they need to build anything they want, but don’t know that what they actually need to build anything they want to build is God; He is the Master builder and the one who would bring all things that you need together, and also see to it that everything is done according to His divine plan.
Our scriptural text in The Passion Translation (TPT) says, “If God’s grace doesn’t help the builders, they will labor in vain to build a house. If God’s mercy doesn’t protect the city, all the sentries will circle it in vain.” So, when we talk about God building the house for a man or watching over the city, it is not Him coming down to do it in His person, but His grace at work in whoever is building it, and His mercy speaking for the man, protecting the man and what he builds, and keeping them safe from evil.
A house represents any project, business, career, family, and relationships. The first thing anyone needs before other resource materials is the grace of God to work greatly in him and for him, bringing favour, acceptability, and making everything to be done effortlessly; and also for God’s mercy to speak safety, divine exemption from evil, and divine backing and protection.
Without the grace of God at work, whatever anyone is building would only be full of labours with no reasonable result, that’s why many have been working tirelessly but keep wondering why they still have nothing to show for their labour; grace can’t be working with you and you would have nothing to show for your labour, so you need grace more than anything.
Some people have built something great, great business, career, and different projects, but somehow, everything got ruined and they are wondering and thinking that maybe someone is working against them; you need mercy to speak for you, when mercy speaks, everything you embark on or build would stand with nothing able to bring it down or demolish it. When mercy is at work, no one would be able to destroy what you build, and all your things would be safe with no thief able come in to steal your thing. Let the grace of God work for you, and let His mercy speak, that’s all you need.
The grace of God works in me and works for me, now I can do all things excellently and successfully through Christ who works mightily in me; the mercy of God speaks for me, it speaks greatness, success, divine protection, and provision for me. Hallelujah!
