Read 1 Chronicles 27:1 through 29:30; John 6:25–40
The vacation season is fast approaching. Some enjoy getting on the road and seeing where they end up. Others plan a little but make lots of room for changes and variations on the plan. A third group have almost as much fun extensively planning the trip as in accomplishing it.
However, when building something monumental, good plans are essential. David desired to build God’s house, but God said, “No.” However, He did let David be part of the planning. David shared the plans with his successor Solomon.
He gave him the plans of all that the Spirit had put in his mind for the courts of the temple of the Lord and all the surrounding rooms, for the treasuries of the temple of God and for the treasuries for the dedicated things (1 Chronicles 28:12).
Can’t you see David rolling out the scroll and excitedly pointing out the details? God has exciting plans for you, and they include prosperity, a hope, and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). His plans for your life are very important. Let the Spirit guide you.
Prayer Suggestion: I will trust You with the plans for my life, to build it for Your glory.
