We can learn much from considering why Israel had to rebuild the House of the Lord.
Are there things in your life that have been torn down but need to be rebuilt? Look at how many times Israel had to rebuild the House of the Lord, and they had faith in the goodness of the Lord. Do you? In each rebuild, the Temple was built of the finest materials given by the people for the glory of God. How does this thought fit into your life and your walk with God?
For what profit has a man, if he gets all the world with the loss of his life? or what will a man give in exchange for his life? For the Son of man will come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he will give to every man the reward of his works. Truly I say to you, There are some of those here who will not have a taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom. (Matthew 16.26-28 Bible in Basic English (BBE))
Golden son of God, Jesus, I have had to rebuild much in my life. I see the value of rebuilding in my life today in almost all situations. I am grateful that I have had these opportunities to learn and grow. I will continue rebuilding as needed as I understand more and recognize the Holy Spirit's guidance. It is as if I live on two planes now that I am consciously working on my relationship with you. One plane is related to hearing and trying to live the word with some understanding but less heart than it should. The other plane is one where I genuinely hear the Holy Spirit's guidance and take action from experience and my heart. I see both are necessary. The first leads to the second that it is only with growing my understanding that I can better hear the intent of the Holy Spirit. This is exciting and very encouraging. I thank you for this wisdom. It helps me feel less of a failure and more like a work in progress, moving forward at your pace. Thank you, Jesus, for your lovely words of encouragement, first made to the apostles and now to me and all who read this scripture. Amen.
