You are Empowered to Build, Repair and Replenish
Isaiah 58:12 (NKJV), Genesis 1:28
Those from among you shall build the old waste places; You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach, the Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. *And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Author PhotoAs the devil steals, kills and destroys through people, God gives life, provides hope and abundance and builds through you and me. Sometimes, before building, certain things have to be destroyed or taken out of the way, Jer.1:10. Destroying is usually easier than building and in the same way fewer people take the narrow road that leads to life, fewer people are also willing to commit themselves to the sacrifices necessary to build. Building requires time and patience. Building also requires wisdom, Prov.24:3. The Lord will build you up and use you to build up the lives of others. Keep growing spiritually. Keep building up yourself in your most holy faith, Jude 20. Also, keep building up your character, skills and other abilities, 1Sam.16:18, Dan.1:4&20.
The Bible says that except the Lord builds, those that build labour in vain, Psa. 27:1. The Lord will build, repair and replenish through you. He will give you creative ideas and supernatural strength and favour to accomplish them. You will supernaturally overcome every obstacle on your way, Zech.4:6-7. You will finish strong. You will build, repair and replenish lives, families, societies, organizations, economies, parastatals, spheres of influence and even nations. God will use you to restore good things that have been long lost and good things that people have even lost hope of experiencing again. So many things will work again and be possible because of you. You will build great systems and structures that will benefit even generations yet unborn.
PRAYER: I am available to You, Jehovah Jireh. Use me to build, repair and replenish lives, homes, organizations and even nations.
