A framework is often a layered structure indicating what kind of things can or should be build and how they would interrelate. Framework are sets of functions within a system and layers of an operating system that are interrelated. In which all have levels of standardized communication networks that is generally more comprehensive than a protocol and more prescriptive than a structure.
May I invite you on a journey about a movement called Christianity. It is a movement and not just a monumental event. It is a way of life that moves from level to level. For the believer of Christ its framework and basic structure is based on the Word of God.
Just like any recognizable skyscrapers that were ever built, the frame is its supporting factor that is build upon substructures and structures, beams and columns that fit together to form a building. However, the most hidden part of the edifice is always the substructure, the unseen strength that enables a building to rise at its height. As a Christian our Framework( God’s Word) brings structure and order to our lives.
In this life we lean towards the visible and the spectacular, we pride ourselves and measure our influence and accomplishments. Sadly, today we have more Christians focusing more on their Superstructures which represents the outward accomplishments of their life and ministry that is built on their level of competence and skills. Warning! superstructures cannot rise to great heights without perils that create dead spaces in the life of the believer rather than a foundation to build on. This is why the focus must always be on the foundation rather than the superstructure.
Our Substructure is the unseen foundation, where our true strength lies.We must have a deep and secure structure in order to lay hold our firm foundation.The christian framework should be build on a life of worship. A wise Christian does not neglect the substructures in their lives.
There are Five Specific Substructures that Christians need to guard in their personal life.
A. Relationships How do you do relationships. It is a time spent with family and kindred spirit friends. Time spent in fellowship with the community of God.
C. Money– How do you handle money? I was taught by a bible scholar Pastor Willie Dixon “that money is my friend and just like any other friend you respect it.”
D.Experiences– Have you come to a place of maturity where you can actually glean life lessons from your experiences?
E. Time- How do you do time? On what do you spend your time doing? Time is a precious commodity and should be managed well. Quality time with God is essential for the believer it builds your faith and relationship with the one true source of your strength.
Who we are, what we do when no one sees, forms the substructures of our lives. How we live before God in the fear of Him, held together by our humility, wisdom and perseverance is the only path to take that will allow you to get the full optimum of your life and to experience biblical prosperity. You have to willing to invest and cultivate a life work of excellence with a continued maintenance and practice of spiritual disciplines that guarantees growth of your substructures when they are anchored in God. When you live a life of excellence it makes the devil have to do two things. 1. Flee your premises or 2. Submit to your authority in God. a life of excellence shuts the door to the enemy’s activity in your life.
Let God frame you today.
