The Vanity of Self-Sufficiency
Topic: Sermons Passage: Psalm 127:1–127:5
The Psalm can be broken into 4 parts:
God’s sovereignty extends to the smallest details of our lives. Contrast the building of the Tower of Babel to the construction of the tabernacle, how God foiled the wicked attempt at building up to heaven versus his spirit giving desire and skill to those who created the artwork and structure of His holy place.
God expects us to have a Godward perspective in all things.
-Doing all that we do in God’s strength
-In submission to God’s hidden will
How can we test our self-sufficiency vs reliance upon God? Examine your prayer life; if you rely upon God, you will be often in prayer.
