February 9 Echoes of Eternity
Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it; except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
Unless I build the house, their labor is vain who build it. Unless I guard the city, the watchmen wait in vain. It is not just to the generation to whom those words first came, but to yours that I send them. Beware of the arm of flesh. Beware of leaning on human wisdom and worldly means. Be as wise as serpents and as harmless
as doves. You are in danger of being seduced by human reasoning— reducing your dependence on My sovereign power and wisdom. Caution is needed and much prayer that you will see, find, and follow the right path.
