—1 Chronicles 22:6-13
by: Angie Osborn.
David planned the Temple and thought he would be the one to build it. God, however, had other plans. He did not want David to build the Temple, but wanted Solomon, David’s son, to do it instead. I am sure it was difficult for David to give up his life-long dream of building a “house” for God. But he accepted God’s direction and was obedient to it. As humans, we plan and scheme, but sometimes God steps in and makes it clear that He has other plans and pushes us in another direction. Our response should be like David’s—we should be willing to set our plans aside and follow His leading.
