We are working out of a devotion book entitled "MY ROCK" during the next 12 weeks.... I have to share with you todays devotion as it has spoken to my heart!!
......So here you are serving the Lord. Have you considered that what you are doing has no hope of succes if it is not the Lord building it? It's true. The Apostle Paul notes this when he says in 1 Corinthians 3:10-11, "According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For not other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ." This means that you must focus your attention on Him working through you.
During a camping season much will be amde of building-building fires, building trust, building lean-to's, building community, building a schedule, etc. But what of building lives? Lives of young peopople without any foundations? If our lives are being built on the founation of Christ, we must also aim for the lives of the ones to whom we minister having their lives built in the same fashion. Look to Him alone as the only secure foundation.
"Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Unless the Lord guards the cirty, the watchman stays awake in vain"
