God’s plan is also given to us in writing - it’s His Word - the Bible - the Holy Scriptures.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
1 Chronicles 29:11 - Yours, O LORD, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O LORD, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things.
Read - 1 Chronicles 28:1-29:20
David speaks to Solomon and then to the people but it is the same message to both: Do the enormous thing that God has called you to do! What a challenge. We no longer build temples but we do take a part as the people of God’s Kingdom work. We pray for God’s Kingdom to be ‘on earth as it is in heaven’. We serve the Kingdom of Jesus today!
Lord, let my life be an example of giving and support towards Your Kingdom.
Note the similarities between David’s charge to Solomon and Moses’ charge to Joshua in Joshua Chapter 1.
Note how David is charging Solomon to Know, Love and Serve God.
1 Chronicles 28:9 - ‘Learn to Know the God of your ancestors’. A clear call to Know God!
1 Chronicles 28:9 - ‘…intimately. Worship Him with your whole heart’. This is the very picture of loving God!
1 Chronicles 28:10 - ‘Be strong and Do the work’. This is the call to serve God!
