Look, I’ve written your names on the backs of my hands. The walls you’re rebuilding are never out of my sight. Your builders are faster than your wreckers. The demolition crews are gone for good.
Sometimes we can question if all we are doing is making a difference. The size of the task to bring restoration to lives around us can seem overwhelming. We can look at where communities have fallen into disrepair and question if it is worth the investment; but when we commit to rebuilding, restoring, and reviving the places where we live, the relationships and lives around us, God works with us! He gets involved in a miraculous way when we mobilize. For every wall we rebuild, God will help establish it. Not one rebuilt life or place is out of His sight. God’s kingdom is advancing, His people are arising and the builders are hastening.
My prayer today is that every believer would build with new passion that, today, as you commit to a process some have forsaken, you would be strengthened by these words from Isaiah 49: “God is watching over our work; let the builders be faster than the wreckers!” Let’s increase our momentum. Praise him today as you build, for what we are building will be a shelter and place of hope for many more to find Him. This verse goes on to say, “Look up! See, they are gathering!”
I pray that would be our awareness and focus as we capture a vision of all that are going to come to him. So, go to it and know that God sees it all. Greater things are to come!!
