"One generation shall praise Your works to another,
And shall declare Your mighty acts. Psalm 145:4
In a tall building, there are many stories. One is built upon another until a beautiful, functional structure is built. Throughout history, there are many stories--personal stories--of individual people, cities, cultures and nations. God is building His kingdom, which is not just one building, but many beautiful buildings made with the stories of people and how they built their lives upon the foundation of the Savior of mankind--Jesus Christ. History is His story--and we can tell it through our stories.
As believers, we are a temple of God. The Spirit of God dwells in us. Each one of our lives is being built on the foundation, the only foundation that has been laid--Jesus. No other foundation will hold up. We secure ourselves to the foundation through hearing and doing the words of the Lord. By being fastened to Him in this way, what we are building will remain standing through the storms.
While building the story of your life, know that what you are building is on the foundation of the Lord. Hearing and doing the words of Jesus, how you hear His words and the motives of your heart will determine if what you are building will remain standing when all is said and done. When your time here on earth is done, what will your story say? What will remain for the next generation? As they explore your story will they discover how your generation has praised the works of God into the next?
