When we dress self in the garments of a prince, we seek to be served rather than serve. We have promoted people to princes before they learned to be servants. We have puffed people up rather than built them up, therefore when a storm arises they quickly collapse at the first gust of wind.
We are entering a building season as the body of Christ. There are major renovations that must be done, it will be an extreme makeover. This is necessary and when it’s complete we will rejoice together at God’s handiwork. There will be those who resist, but the majority will submit to the process for the foremen and women God is going to assign to help lead have been through the process already. The renovations in their life will be noticeable as soon as God reveals them.
God is a builder not a destroyer. Wisdom builds, God is wisdom. Love builds, God is love. Grace is a builder, God is grace. We are entering a major building project and not only is it needed, most people want it. The days of puffing up and propping up are over, we are now going to see the body of Christ built up.
Ephesians 4:29 “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”
