Dream House

October 24, 2014


My husband and I are planning to buy or to build a house. We are distraught about the cost of buying or constructing a new house and filling it (furniture, appliances, etc). We have many opinions from our relatives and friends and we even surveyed a low cost housing in our near municipality. What struck me is one of our Aunts opinion, she told us to ask God for wisdom and direction in our decision making.

On that night, I asked God what He wants for us. I am amazed when He answered me, He said, Enlarge your house; build an addition. Spread out your home, and spare no expense!” (Isaiah 54:2, NLT). His answer is very clear. He wants us to build a new house and to spend without regarding the cost. And that same night, I received the proposed floor plan of our house from an architect friend.


The Proposed Floor Plan


When I look Isaiah 54 in The Message (MSG) translation, it says, “Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big!  Use plenty of rope, drive the tent pegs deep. You’re going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family.” I am married with 1 (one) child but I’m still praying for an addition to our family but when I read this word in The Message translation it is now clear to me why God wants us to enlarge our house and build an addition it’s because of our growing family. I’m praying and hoping that I will be pregnant with our second child this year.


Let’s pray.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for your word, for answering us when we are in doubt and when we need answers. Thank you for being true to your word and promises. Father, I know that these promises will come to pass in your perfect timing. Right now, I am entrusting all our plans and cares in your hands. I love you. In Jesus’ name. Amen!


For God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable. – Romans 11:29, NIV
