(Prosperity Comes from the Lord)
(The Eighth Psalm in a Song of Ascents)

PSALM 127 (1-5): Unless the LORD builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. Unless the LORD guards the city, the watchman keeps awake in vain. It is vain for you to rise early, to retire late, to eat the bread of anxious labors. For He gives [blessings] to His beloved even in his sleep.

Behold, children are a heritage and gift from the LORD–the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. How blessed [happy and fortunate] is the man whose quiver is filled with them. They will not be ashamed when they speak with their enemies [in gatherings] at the [city] gate.

PRAYER: Thank you, Lord, for giving us these “life truths” in “word pictures” that help us to understand your “bigger picture.” We understand that the “house” you have referred to could be a structure in our world, but it also refers to your Church, which refers to the governing structure that you meant us to be in our world. We understand that in either case, if we are trying to complete such structures, and have left out your GODLY plans, then our WORLDLY plans will fail completely. Physically waking up early, going to bed late, and worrying about everything in between, will not “cut it.” To succeed in these ventures, we must know, understand, and speak, that you (and you alone) are the giver of blessings and success—even when we have wisely chosen to “get a good night’s sleep,” in order to refresh our God-given bodies and souls. We understand that physical labor is necessary, but the underlying power and strength come only through our relationships with you.

We also understand that the children spoken of in this Psalm do apply to our PHYSICAL children–certainly blessings from you. We also understand, however, that you are also speaking of the children who are birthed through Holy Spirit, once we have learned to act on your Word that tells us to, “Go into all the world…” When we go out and spread the Gospel of the Kingdom of God (by healing the sick, raising the dead, cleansing the lepers, and casting out demons—all in the name of Jesus) we WILL see your SPIRITUAL children be born, grow up, and then share the same Gospel of the Kingdom. Both types of children are special to you, Lord, we know. Thank you very much for giving us the capability of, the responsibility of, and the wonderful blessings of your very own strength and authority, in order to birth and raise up strong, Godly children in all aspects of your Kingdom, to inhabit the Godly structures that you also provide.
