The soil has been treated and the cement laid, today we will look at the wood that is used to create the floor and walls.
Wood is used to create the floor and wall frames. However, you cannot just use any type of wood, you have to use “pressure treated lumber.” The wood is pressure treated to get rid of fungi, bacteria and insects. If the wood is not treated it will only last a year or two due to the fact that it is coming in contact with moist ground and would decay. The wood is treated so that it is renewed, preserved and will be steadfast (unmovable) for years to come. Psalm 51:7 – “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me.” The Word of God is able to remove the parasitic parts of our lives and build us up to become steadfast and immovable.
The treatment process has two parts: the lumber is immersed in a liquid preservative and placed in a pressure chamber. Now comparing this process to what the Word of God does for us:
(1) Immerse – We have to immerse ourselves in the Word of God which cleanses and preserves – Psalms 1:2-4, Ephesians 5:26: “that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word.”
(2) Pressure Chamber – forces the chemical into the core to ensure it gets all the way into the wood so that it can stand for decades in the house being built.
Hebrews 4:12: “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Your screaming, nagging and complaining only produces temporary fixes and strife. The Word of God cleanses, preserves, transforms and converts permanently! Our prayer today is that our husbands, children, families and ourselves immerse in the Word of God and allow Him to make the floor and wall frames that are steadfast, unmovable and endures until the end.
This is the day that the Lord has made and we shall rejoice and be glad in it. We love You and honor You today. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over every praying wife, husband and family member now in Jesus name. I pray that our delight is in the law of the Lord and in Your law we meditate day and night. I pray that we shall be like trees planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaves shall not wither, and whatever we do shall prosper. (Psalms 1:2-4) I pray that Your Word we will lay up in our hearts, so that We might not sin against You. (Psalm 119:11) That we will delight ourselves in Your statutes; and we will not forget Your Word (Psalm 119:16). We believe that all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that we (men and women of God) may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16)
In Jesus Name, Amen!
