2019 – MONDAY 25 MARCH
“The bricks have fallen down,
But we will rebuild with hewn stones;
The sycamores are cut down,
But we will replace them with cedars.”
BUILD YOUR LIFE ON SOLID ROCK
Solid rock is under the surface soil.
Some people build superficial lives on the surface soil.
Others dig down deep until they hit solid rock.
Others dig through the first layers of rock to go deeper – to build taller.
BUILD YOUR LIFE WITH FLEXIBILITY
To survive the movement of unexpected earthquakes – buildings are built with great flexibility – to withstand the tremors.
People who succeed in life have inbuilt flexibility – without compromising their foundational convictions.
YOU CAN ONLY BUILD YOUR LIFE AS TALL AS YOUR FOUNDATIONS ARE DEEP
Huge skyscrapers that mark our horizons – are built on massive and deep foundations. The below ground work can take a long time before there is above ground evidence of success.
YOU CANT REBUILD WITHOUT CLEARING AWAY THE RUBBLE
When life does bring destruction and ruin – it is impossible to rebuild until the rubble is removed.
You can never rebuild on the rubble of broken dreams. Clear the site – put it under the blood – get forgiveness – then spend time digging deeper – so there won’t be a next time.
You cannot cover over a collapse – with business as usual.
YOU CAN REBUILD STRONGER AND BETTER
God is in the reconstruction business. Never let an earthquake – no matter how damaging – destroy your future.
There are better days ahead.
But the rebuild will be costly and time consuming.
God is the restorer of ruins – and He gives you grace to rebuild.
THIS TIME DIG DEEPER
BUILD WITH HEWN STONES
USE STRONG CEDARS
YOU CAN JOIN 1000 SHIELDS AND BE PART OF THIS EMERGING ARMY
