The Bamboo House by Marsha Burns
The process of tearing down has been both natural and
spiritual, just as the building up process will be.
In a vision I saw a man building a house with bamboo, and I
knew this house would be simple, flexible, and durable.
Bamboo includes some of the fastest-growing plants in the
world. Bamboo has a higher
compressive strength than wood, brick, or concrete and a tensile strength that
rivals steel. Compressive strength
resists being pushed together, whereas tensile strength resists being pulled
apart. I believe this vision is a type of who we are becoming in
Christ. God is about to cause us to
become a better house—simple, flexible, durable. (See
Simple: without a mixture of evil, free from guile, innocent
Flexible: ready and able to change so as to adapt to different circumstances
Durable: tough, resistant, imperishable, indestructible, strong, sturdy
1 Corinthians 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?
