BIRTHDAYS AND CASTLES

Castle- A building or group of buildings fortified against attack with thick walls. It is also a place where people can dwell. So I will refer to it as a very large house.

I was talking with my daughter the other day, when she told me of a dream my grandson had. She had awakened him from his sleep one evening, and he was frustrated because he was dreaming about Birthdays and Castles. He told her that each year you have a birthday you are building a castle, and that when you pass away your castle is finished. So she said to him,

“What about small children?’, and he replied,

“Well Mommy, there are small castles, medium castles, and big castles”

I don’t know that his dream had anything to do with age, I think it’s more about the type of life we live. We have 365 days each year to build something Great! So I’d like to ask you; What type of castle are you building? Is it one of straw, wood, clay, or are you building with a good foundation and using brick?

Will it stand against the elements, the wind, rain, even; fire?! What’s on the inside of your castle? Are their vessels of honor. ( Fruit of the Spirit, Galatians 5:22-23), or Dishonor (Works of the flesh, Galatians 5:19 ).

Jesus said, ” Upon this rock {he is the rock), I will build my church, (a dwelling place, you, the holy spirit), and the gates of hell (opposition), shall not prevail (WIN ), against it (HIM)! { Matthew 16:18).

Psalm 18:2 ” The lord is my rock” Psalm 62:2 “He only is my rock” 2 Samuel 22:3 ” The God of my rock”.

This let’s me know if I am going to build my castle, I must build it in him because heaven and earth shall one day pass way, but everything built upon “The Rock” will stand. How will you build your castle?

To God Be The Glory
