Unless the LORD


Where do you live?

Who built your dwelling?

House, apartment.

The builder is very important.

Consider this passage:


Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman keeps awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, To retire late, To eat the bread of painful labors; For He gives to His beloved even in his sleep.
–Psalm 127:1-2

What if we took the first six words of this passage and changed it to apply to our own situations?

Unless the LORD earns the degree….

Unless the LORD secures the job….

Unless the LORD moves the family….

We need God’s blessing on our endeavors, whatever they may be.

Though we work and strive to accomplish something, if it is not what God wants, it will not be what it could have been.

Anything plus God equals complete sufficiency.

Anything minus God equals a terrible deficit.



Unless the LORD…….
