I have a house!!

I have a house, and it's builder and designer is none other that Jesus.

God gives me a weekly scripture to ponder. This weeks scripture is

John 14:1-3 NKJV

Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in Me.
In My Father's house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.

Jesus is building me a house. He alone is building it stone by stone and nail by nail. Whether it is a room or a house does not matter. His hands have laid each board.

Oh to walk in and touch the walls that He has nailed and painted. The furniture has all been hewned by hand, by the One's who hands were nailed to a cross. Each piece was chosen just for me, to bring joy to my heart. Can you imagine turning to Him with tears of joy streaming down your face and saying "Thank you, I am so unworthy of this gift", and bowing once again at His feet to worship the One who is the lover of your soul.

Just thinking about this is just almost more that I can take in.

Deut 6:10-11 NKJV

So it shall be, when the LORD your God brings you into the land of which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build,
houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, hewn-out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant-

To the new testament believer this is heaven that is being described.

1 Corinthians 1:9 NKJV

But as it was written:
Eye has not see, nor ear heard
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.

I have a house built by the Chief Builder. I am a house being built by the Corner Stone.
