—1 Chronicles 22:2-5
by: Angie Osborn.
David had been told that he would not be allowed to build the Temple. He was, however, able to plan for the building of the Temple. He worked with Solomon to plan and share his wisdom. David’s response could have been one of frustration—he wanted to build the temple. When God told him he could not build the temple, he responded in obedience and humility. He accepted God’s plan and found a way he could contribute. God may not always call us to do what we think we should be doing, but He will use us as long as we are obedient to Him. What part is He asking you to play?
