Hebrews 8:1-2 (KJV); Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
Our theme scripture speaks of a tabernacle that is pitched by God and not by man. It presupposes that there are things in this life which have been built by men yet God has a definite plan of how they should have been built.
It is possible for a man to build a ministry and watch it grow yet that ministry has not been built by God. For such a one, it is always only a matter of time before the entire establishment comes crumbling down.
The critical thing here is to understand that even what is not planted by God can grow.
In Matthew 15:13, the Bible says, “Every plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up.”
The plant in this scripture grows, even though it is not planted by God. It means that sometimes growth and increase can deceive a man into thinking that he is in the perfect will of God.
In everything that you do, you must be sure that God is building and not yourself.
You must acquire a deep understanding of the patterns of the Spirit that dictate the designs in the physical realm. What you build must be a reflection of what God has planned and purposed.

GOLDEN NUGGET: In everything that you do, you must be sure that God is building and not yourself. You must acquire a deep understanding of the patterns of the Spirit that dictate the designs in the physical realm. What you build must be a reflection of what God has planned and purposed.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You because my life has a design in eternity. I know that You have a blueprint for my marriage, ministry, and career. It is by that design that I build because I behold what was pitched by You. In this wisdom, nothing I establish can ever be shaken or broken, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
