About My Building Contractor and Personal Security Guard

How often have we mistaken the means through which God has blessed us with what really is our source of success and defence.  Rehoboam had successfully fortified the cities, and probably felt impregnable and beyond defeat.  Little did he apparently know that his fortifications were but REPRESENTATIONS of God's all encompassing protection; outside of God we are easy pickings for the devil and his selected agencies.

There are times when we somehow feel that the good credit rating, the sizeable net value, the impressive academic prowess, our fame and connections are the things that guarantee our safety and success in life.  Well would we learn the lesson from Rehobaom's life though that, "Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain." Ps 127: 1.
