In order for a house to stand it must have a solid framing system in place before the walls and the other parts of the house are installed. Psalms 127:1 says, “Expect the Lord build the house they labour in vain that build it.” God, through his written word and proceeding word (prophesy, dreams, visions, words of wisdom, etc.), has given us different frameworks to help us build a successful life. One such framework is found in Joshua 1:8:
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous and then thou shalt have good success.
Here’s the framework for success found in this scripture:
- Don’t let the word depart out of your mouth (speak, eat, digest it)
- Meditate on it day and night (be constantly mindful of it)
- Observe to do all that is written (Seek to do all it says, live it)
Here’s another example of a framework in action. This is the framework given to me by way of a proceeding word from the Holy Spirit. It’s regarding my health and maintaining a healthy body weight.
- Exercise regularly (cardio and resistance training
- Limit your intake of fatty foods and sugars (eat healthy)
- Stop eating when you are full
- Avoid emotional eating
- Maintain a healthy a digestive system (regular colon cleanings)
- Take your vitamins
- Drink plenty of water
As I’m diligent to live within the parameters of this framework, I’ve been able to reach my goal of maintaining a healthy body and weight for over 40 years. This goes to show you frameworks work when you work them! What are some frameworks you can employ in your life to reach specific goals you are desiring to achieve?
