Chronological Reading for the day: 1 Chronicles 27-29 & Psalm 127
- 1 Chronicles 27:23, to me shows a complete and utter trust of God and his word, “David did not take the number of the men twenty years old or less, because the Lord had promised to make Israel as numerous as the stars in the sky” – he didn’t need the measurable, he didn’t need the proof, he just trusted that it was…my our trust be as such
- 1 Chronicles 28:2-3, my hope would be that we could truly see this in the heart of pastors and leaders, to me, for David to acknowledge this, is to realize that the vision is not yours, it is God’s and he will bring it about how he sees fit, again, while it is hard for a leader to see “his” vision, accomplished by another, I believe if we hold it loosely as our, and know, rather, that it is God’s our heart will be one of thanksgiving that we were allowed to be part of it.
- What if our hearts were that of 1 Chronicles 29:24-26 when it comes to all we possess. What if we really believed this passage about our own material possessions, how different would our lives look?
- I pray that Psalm 127:1-2 becomes the filter in which I see every ‘success’ in my life.
Common Prayer Reading: Psalm 138: 1-5; Zechariah 9; Ephesians 5:1-14
1 Chronicles 28:20 … today, may we imagine we are at the feet of David, and concerning our visions for God and our call in life, David were to look at us and say,
Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you until all the work for the service…of the Lord is finished.
