Re:Verse reading–Genesis 11:1-9 (day seven)
Consider, please, the promises and warnings of God’s word.
1) God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble. James 4:6. Genesis 11. He actively and deliberately hinders the efforts of people who seek to make life make sense without Him.
2) God blesses those who meditate on His word (in order to obey it). Psalm 1. What happens in my head matters. What happens in my heart matters more. “The eyes of the Lord search to and fro over the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.” 2 Chronicles 16:9.
3) Ultimately, all projects are judged against our motives for doing them. Genesis 11. Hebrews 4:12. Is this about God? In line with His will and word? It is really about me, my needs, my name?
Important and helpful question–Can God bless what I am trying to build?
