Footsteps of the Flock: He is building you

June 1

And the word of the LORD came to Solomon, saying, Concerning this house which thou art building, if thou wilt walk in my statutes, and execute my judgments, and keep all my commandments to walk in them;then I will perform my word with thee, which I spake unto David thy father.

1 Kings 6:11-12

Even while construction is going on, the Lord calls Solomon back to a very important reality. In the midst of this building project, He says, "Walk in My statutes. Execute My judgments. Keep My commandments; and I will perform My word."

In other words, the Lord was saying, "I'm not as concerned about building a building as I am about building you."

Dear friend, don't ever mistake activity and ministry for what is happening internally spiritually. You could be buzzing around doing all kinds of things for the Lord, but that doesn't necessarily mean you're doing well with Him. How is your relationship with the Lord? That's the issue. That's always the issue.
