—1 Kings 8:14-21
by: Trisha Gerstel.
After the Ark had been brought into the Holiest Place in the newly completed Temple of the Lord, King Solomon addressed the people of Israel and reminded them of the history of the plans to build a temple, which his father, David, had dreamed of but was prevented by God from carrying out. By doing this, Solomon reminded the people of God’s sovereignty. This practice should be a part of our lives as well: We should make regular efforts to share with others the words of God, the plans of God, and the activities of God, both from the stories of the Bible and from our own lives’ stories. By doing this, we will remind the people of God’s sovereignty.
