Psalm 127:1 The Lord is the Master Builder, Governor, and Protector

Psalms 127:1  A Song of Ascents. Of Solomon. Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain. (NKJV)


The Lord has to be first in our lives and in our endeavors.


He is the Master Builder.


He is the Master Governor.


He is the Master Protector.


It is never in vain thing to put God first.


This takes time, prayer, and action in our walk with God. He will reveal a lot of things to you. Things you need to give to Him. Any fears and doubts. Any hopes and dreams. Everything He deems necessary so that you are built up and complete in Christ. The Holy Spirit will help you do this. The Word is our guide.
