Before God can use you for what He plans for you, He has to build you up. The kind of background you come from does not matter if you allow God to work on you. You need to ask yourself sincerely what you have been built on over the years.
If you have been built on wrong doctrines, sin and all kinds of evil, be honest with yourself and let God help you out of that state so that He can begin to build you on the correct diet needed for your destiny.
If you have been built on a wrong foundation, time will expose that dent, so you must make sure that what you are standing on is eternal. When a person comes to church with the right heart, God begins a building project in his life. It is similar to what an architect does when he wants to remodel an old building to the design that he has in mind. However, there are some situations that the whole building has to be demolished for a new one to be erected.
Some people don’t get to be what God wants them to be because they are unwilling to let go of all they have been built on that is wrong. For example, if financially you have been built on a life of spending, a life of no planning, you have to de-programme that spending habit in you and start to go through the process that retains wealth.
It will take a lot of adjustment for you to be built right if what you are built on is not correct or right. You can never build anything right if you are not right yourself. It’s absolutely important that you understand that.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask of a divine supply of whatever is lacking in my building. Let there be no gaps in Jesus’ name. Amen!
