Scripture:
“Unless the Lord builds the house,
the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,
the guards stand watch in vain.
In vain you rise early
and stay up late,
toiling for food to eat—
for he grants sleep to those he loves.” ~Psalm 127:1-2

Observation:
The Psalm is telling us that God is in charge and that nothing we do ultimately stands against His wishes.

Application:
I spend a lot of time planning my future. There are things right now that I am worried about. Ultimately, though, what will happen is in God’s hands. It doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t plan or work, just that I should worry and obsess about what I have little control over.

Prayer:
Father, You know my desires for my family’s future. I pray that You will bring my plans in line with Yours. Make Your will clear to me and help me to follow it. Give me a heart of peace about the future, and help me remember that worry can’t add a single day to my life.
