Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Psalm 127: 1
Praise the Lord. We have been trying to close on a new house for quite some time. The loan approval process was getting delayed due to various reasons. First the closing was planned on June 29. Then it was July 20. Then it was July 31 and thereafter it could be any day! The bank drilled us with so many questions and needed so many additional documents from us. I along with family and friends began to seek the Lord earnestly.
On Aug 9th, I miraculously stumbled upon a message in YouTube and the speaker spoke from Phil 1:6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” He continued to say that the Lord who started to build your house will see to its completion. That line sparked my faith. The next day (Aug 10th) at 3.30 pm we got notice from the closing attorney that we can come for closing within an hour! We closed the same day at 6 pm and got our keys to the house.
We serve a faithful God who hears our prayers and answers them at His time for His glory!
