Gods Building

God’s Building
While looking at Psalm 127, I am seeing how so many people (believers included) have taken into their own hands the building of their families. I see in the Word of God that man and wife are like Christ and the Church. I see also that our children are like God’s children. If our families are going to be the way God wants them to be we are going to have to let God build them the way that He wants.
I do not believe that we should establish our own dreams and goals and then try and get God’s blessing and help with it. I do believe that we should seek for God’s purpose and assignment for our families and follow His dreams and goals to establish that purpose in the earth.
I strongly believe that every Christian family should be a picture of God’s kingdom to all who see them. I do not mean that we are all so perfect that we just float around all the time singing and going hallelujah. No, I am talking about the life, order, power, covenant, the- thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven picture. So that people could see what God is really like and what a child of God would be like in His kingdom with Christ and His bride (the church) being one and carrying out the will of the Father together.
Now, before any of that can be done we must see who gives the children and how many. Yes, I know that some eyebrows are raised, but that area must be established first before the building of the house. You see if one stone is left out of the place that it should be- the building could fall.
Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is His reward. (Psalm 127:3) The world, under satan’s leadership has convinced people that having a lot of children is a curse and something must be done to stop that. So we have available to us multiple forms of birth control. These are designed to stop what god calls reward and blessing. (Deut. 28:1-14) Now note Psalm 127 verse 4 & 8, then Verse 11.
It is easy to see that God’s blessing is numbered differently than the worlds. We can always judge by this standard: What is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. (Luke 16:15)
We are praying and doing all sorts of things to stop abortion in this country, yet it is happening among professing Christians every day. It happens in the form of birth control methods, open acts of aborting the conceived babies in the womb. (For more details on this subject read the teaching, Abortion in the Church)
 Even many pastors and counselors are telling believers the lies of the devil saying—Well God gave us good sense and we should use it in this area, Birth control methods are just God’s way of helping us keep things in control and not get more than we can take care of, You know that it’s better to give quality time and care to one or two children than it is to have so many and not be able to spend time with them, Besides it is a wicked world and a terrible place to bring children in to. Beloved, that is a pack of lies and does not agree with God’s Word at all!
 Quiver –Full isn’t what we may decide is enough. Quiver –Full is based on God’s vision, purpose, and assignment for our families. What if Jesse the father of King David, had decided to cut it all off after 6 sons or 7? Then David, the man after God’s heart who fulfilled His will. Fed his generation and ours would not have been born. We could add many more examples here.
 
The Bible tells us that Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them. (Psalm 127:5) let’s look at them. First, they are the children that God has given – not what man decided to have. Second, they are as arrows in the hand of a mighty man.
Who is the mighty man? Well, it could be you, it can be the Holy Ghost, and it can be the hand of God. The point is that they are supposed to be the powerful instruments of fulfilling God’s will. An Arrow is something that is shot at an enemy by one that is skilled and strong in hunting the target aimed at.
Brethren, the house- the city that God is building at your address and mine are to be powerful forces to subdue the enemies of righteousness and advance the kingdom of God. I do not expect my children to grow up and have a taste of the world before they decide that to serve God is better. No! My wife and I are training warriors that will take up the cross with us and make our assault stronger on our enemies. We are not fretting or fearing about their safety, health, provision or any other thing concerning them. Except the Lord keep the city, the watchmen waketh but in vain. (Psalm 127:1)
What God gives- God takes care of. Yes, we live according to the Word of God using all that he has given us for the covenant promises of God to be in force. But the bottom line is that I can not do any of these things for my family, it would be foolish to try. But, faith in my God will and does do it for us! He takes care of His own. Amen.
The army we should be about training is one that sees everyday whether at home or abroad that God’s Word is true and God’s way works, that God’s promises in Jesus Christ are real and there is nothing that compares! Therefore they are not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, nor to believe God for victory, wisdom, and abundant life. They sit at the gates of the city in the place of the wise and powerful. They are ever watchful, defending what God has built, speaking to the enemies with the authority of the believer, knowing that they have a heritage to pass on to the next generation of even larger, more powerful, wiser children of God!
I encourage you beloved to stop wearing yourself out and weighing yourself down by trying it some other way than God’s. Labor to enter into His rest and when you do He will show us all a more glorious way! One that flows from His heart to yours! Amen.
