Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.
Dependence on anything or anyone other than Me is done in vain. You’ll be disappointed because mankind will let you down. Dependence on yourself is futile as well. Your looks, strength and intelligence can only take you so far. Purpose and success outside of Me will leave you empty and void. True meaning is found in Me. In the darkest of night when you are all alone, you can’t escape the feelings that are stirred up. You can’t hide who you truly are at these times and you can only think and pretend that you’re keeping anything from Me. Apart from Me your successes will in the end be unsatisfying to your soul.
So take My hand and follow My lead. I have the perfect plan for you that will satisfy you completely… because I know the true desires of your heart.
