What Kingdom Builders Know... -- By Joyce C. Lock

Kingdom builders know that the temple is within each and every one of you who are God's children and that it can only be built by discovering the passions of your soul, listening for the Spirit, then believing God; providing the necessary tools (to the extent God equips) to meet your need and or to aid in accomplishing your calling, and to encourage you in taking steps toward becoming all God created you to be ... to be your heavenly cheerleaders.

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness,
to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free,
and that ye break every yoke?
(Isaiah 58:6)

Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me. (Exodus 8:1)

To do anything less is to sit upon God's throne.

To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not.
(Lamentations 3:36)
In essence, Kingdom builders know to do whatever it takes
to lift up God's chosen ...

God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.

1 Co. 1:27: "God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise."
Also knowing where to place their faith ...

Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. (1 Co. 1:25)

"Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it:
except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain."
(Psalm 127:1)

"Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it." (1 Th. 5:24)
Kingdom builders know to be the door opener, as
Talents multiply once doors are opened, then applied.

"Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them." (Matthew 25:22)
Out of weakness, made strong ...
God uses the common man in the uncommon hour,
wherein He gets the glory.

"We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification." (Romans 15:1-2)
Kingdom Builders know to utilize the gifts of those in your midst
and to multiply that seed in as many ways as doors open,
as God gifted every one to be a light for Him.
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." (James 1:17)

Kingdom Builders know to let God be the Master Builder.

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.  For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands." (Isaiah 55:8-12)
