“…as a skillful architect and master builder I laid the foundation, and now another man is building upon it. But let each man be careful how he builds upon it.” – I Cor 3:10
Any house that will stand the test of storms and fiery wind must be erected on a firm foundation. Where the foundation is faulty, destruction is closer than imagined. Failing to build wisely is giving the devil the reason to make mockery of your life and to maneuver you out of God’s master plan for your life. So, to know God’s master plan for your life is crucial to building wisely and successfully. And it will take only a foolish man to build on the sand instead of on Christ, the solid Rock (Matt. 7:26).
Wisdom is very fundamental to every building process. A Christian who wants to flourish and remain standing in the face of opposition, distraction and discouragement must be willing to build his spiritual life with the right building blocks. Anything short of applying the building blocks of the fruits of the Spirit will pull down your spiritual life.
You must be driven by the force of righteousness to keep building lest you give the devil the chance to creep into your life with offers to distract you from continuity and flourishing finish. Let righteousness be your motivation and the Holy Spirit your Chief Instructor for a perfect construction. Don’t leave any outlet or opening for the devil to penetrate into your life. If you don’t build wisely, the devil will bust into your life to execute his devilish plans. May you not be a victim of unwise and wasteful living in Jesus name.
