A Wise Architect


How are your plans going today? In this short Psalm, Solomon reminds how important it is to choose the right architect. An architect is the person who designs the house, lays out the plan for a building. Once the blueprint is in hand, the contractors can begin to build.

Solomon reminds us that only a premium set of blueprints and a wise architect will produce a building worth living in. Unless the Lord designs the house, those that build it are just wasting their time.

So who’s plan are you following? If you are planning for your own life, be prepared for failure. We can’t plan for every contingency, every possibility, every eventuality. Only God can do that. He can see the future. You can’t. You can’t conceived of every problem. Only God can do that.

But you are a laborer on this house. Would you rather build with plans made by an all-knowing God, or a man with limited knowledge?

Just something I want you to be thinking about this morning. Let God plan the work. You work the plan.
