The description of the temple that Solomon built to worship the Lord tells us that it must have been indescribably beautiful. Great care was taken to insure that every piece and component was of the very highest quality and beauty. All materials were prepared and sized beforehand so that there was not the sound of a hammer in its assembly.
The way God prepares us and puts us together is similar. He selects and cuts and shapes and refines each one of us to fit together, for you see, WE are God’s building.
Please don’t complain or bale out when God puts you through His preparation process. He has a critical placement for you in His mind. He must make sure you will FIT.
PRAYER: Father in Heaven, You are working on me to make me fit with other members of the Body of Christ. I repent of my complaining. Shape me to fulfill my place in YOUR BUILDING.
