Today I want to begin with a question:  When you make decisions on your own without prayer or without the LORD somewhere in the process how did it turn out? Speaking from my own experience NOT GOOD!  Perhaps differently for you, but overall I would think most would answer not very good.

Well, Psalm 127 spoke beautifully to everything is useless without God.  I wish that each of us would honestly answer the question above and realize that as a whole we are in trouble in the U.S.  We are leaving God out of too many things and we aren't doing very well.

Solomon wrote this Psalm and we know that from God's Word that Solomon is the wisest man around in 1 Kings 4: 29 -30 these words about Solomon ~ God gave Solomon very great wisdom and understanding, and knowledge as vast as the sands of the seashore.  In fact, his wisdom exceeded that of all the wise men of the East and the wise men of the West.  Well that about covers how smart Solomon was and he wrote these beautiful words in Psalm 127 about life being nothing without God.

Unless the LORD builds a house, the works of the builders is wasted.   
Unless the LORD protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good.
It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.
Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him.
Children are born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior's hands.
How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them!
He will  not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.

Nothing is useless that God does!

The devil has deceived many in this country and the world into believing that they don't need God and that His Word not relevant for today. Lord, please have mercy on us all.
