Dream Home



Through skillful and godly Wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation], and by knowledge shall its chamber [of every area] be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.  (Proverbs 24:3-4 AMP)


Driving through a prominent neighborhood, as I frequently do, dreaming of one day owning a home quite as beautiful, I noticed new construction going on around it.  A team of men working together under the instruction of one man, guiding them as they carefully, precisely lowered a beam to begin framing the roof.


Just as a house is designed and built ground up from a plan of intricate instruction and design, we too build our lives according to God’s blueprint found in His Word.  He is the solid foundation in which we are to build upon.  Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock.  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.  (Matthew 7:24-25)


We all have big dreams in our hearts for every area of our lives; our relationships, our families, our health, our careers, our homes. If we don’t, we should ask God to reveal to us a vision for our life.  Where there is no vision, the people perish.   (Proverbs 29:18)  It is through the understanding of God’s character and the wisdom provided in His Word in which we begin to build our lives.  Which really, in reality is our home. 


Home isn’t four walls and a roof, it’s not your dream kitchen with all the perks; home is where our spirit abides.  Home is the temple in which we dwell with God.  Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?  (Corinthians 6:19)


Every morning for the last six months, I’ve woken up to the sound of construction and heavy machinery clearing lots and building new homes. At first this was a nuisance, and then God invited me to see it differently.  Now, I allow it to be my early morning wake up call, encouraging me to rise, shine and partner with God!


We can each partner with God, through studying His Word and activating our faith through the obedience in the placing of each piece of our being.  By submitting our hearts, minds, bodies and spirits to the authority of His instruction.  By offering Him our energy, time and talents, He begins to build and manifest this beautiful life we dream of!  This home we see so clearly in our hearts!  And He does this from the inside out.


Time to start building that dream home!
