Christian Books – Donna Louis – God’s Architect. Antoni Gaudi was called God’s Architect by his contemporaries.

Antoni Gaudi was a man of great pride, great creativity, great spirituality, and great nationalism. Gaudi was quoted as saying, “Enlightened or not, a dictatorship cannot last because it is useful only temporarily. A dictatorship is like a bridge between two ways of ruling. And people do not dwell on bridges, they only walk across them.” Christian Books – Donna Louis – God’s Architect.
Gaudi was a devout man. He went to church twice a day. He believed with conviction his architectural ability was a gift from God. He said, “Social excellence can be achieved when everyone uses their own God-given gift.” Christian Books – Donna Louis – God’s Architect.
We all have God-given gifts and talents but sadly we let them lie dormant. Dr. Wayne Cordeiro, Pastor and Author stated in his book, The Dream Releasers, “the graveyard is the wealthiest place in all of creation.” When we were children we used to dream big dreams. We also believed that the world was our oyster. Then we aged some, and encountered some trials and tribulations, and we forgot our dreams and began to settle for what came our way. Some of the greatest people in the bible encountered difficult times. Moses, Joseph, Ruth, and David. Donna Louis – Christian Books – God’s Architect.
Moses – He was a Hebrew who was raised by Pharaoh’s daughter instead of his Hebrew mother. Moses committed murder when he killed an Egyptian slave master because he was smiting a Hebrew. However, God chose Moses to free the Israelites from slavery in Egypt under Pharaoh.
Joseph – He was a dreamer, who had several brothers and was hated by them because his father Israel loved him the most. As the story goes his brothers conspired to kill him but, instead just threw him in a pit and took his clothes and dipped them in goats blood and told their father Israel he was killed. Joseph was taken by the Midianites into Egypt and was made a captain of the guard however, a lie was concocted that he attempted to rape Potiphar’s wife, (who was a high officer of Pharaoh) and was placed in jail for 13 years. The story goes on to say Pharaoh had a disturbing dream that only Joseph could interpret and once he did Pharaoh released him from jail and put him in charge of the entire land of Egypt.
Ruth – She was the most distinguished person of the Moabitish race and was also a widow. Ruth stayed with her mother-in-law Naomi and to survive she worked in the fields gleaning corn. Ultimately, she caught the eye of the rich owner of those fields Boaz and went from poor widow to a rich wife.
David – Everyone knows the biblical story of David and Goliath but did you know that he committed adultery with Bathsheba, and then committed the murder of Uriah the Hittite Bathsheba’s husband. Ultimately, however God crowned David as king instead of Saul.
We all have the capabilities to become a designer of some sort for God. Architect, Artist, Author, Teacher, Pastor etc. – Christian Books – Donna Louis – God’s Architect.
